Whether you are local or far from home, those of you know the BEST Ice Cream in the nation is at Handel's in Youngstown, Ohio (at many locations throughout the valley).For those of you who are not locals, and just visiting I highly recommend this place..... it will only take one time to convince you and please come again.

There are so many wonderful flavors it is hard to pick. The cones are generous and the service is friendly and very helpful. Chocolate pecan is always a great pick but I haven't had a flavor I haven't enjoyed.

Traditional ice cream stand that brings back good memories of my childhood. They have a wide variety of great tasting ice cream. My personal favorite is the chocolate chunk mocha in a waffle cone. AND the prices are less than the chain ice cream places.

Everything from Handels is delicious. The chocolate pecan is what brought them fame. It's so popular it needs to be made daily and therefore never gets completely freezer hard. It's amazing. I also love Buckeye, coffee chip, Graham Central Station, Red Skies at Night, Champagne Ice, Snappy Turtle, and the plain Vanilla is wonderful too! You won't be disappointed if... More

Hades is the best quaint little old fashioned ice cream shop. They have so many flavors and items to choose from! My favorite is the butter pecan on a waffle cone! Simply the best ice cream I ever had. And this is local, in fact it started here in Youngstown Ohio. The service is always friendly and delightful.
