The ice cream is great and they sell gift coins which are fun to give freinds and relatives. Try taking a quart home for a nice dessert

The Good: If you have not had Handel's Ice Cream, then you haven't had ice cream! There is none that can hold a cone to the rich and full flavor of Handel's ice cream and frozen yogurt. The Bad: Handel's does not understand the difference between chocolate flakes and chocolate chips in the Chocolate Mint Chip ice cream, or the... More

This ice cream is delicious! They have a lot of flavors and some of them are very unique or special for each season. For example, right now it is fall, & they had pumpkin ice cream and some kind of apple caramel sundae that looked really good. I always get the mint chocolate chip ice cream & it is wonderful....

Many ice cream/treat options such as ice cream sandwiches, sundaes, hurricanes, shakes, etc. They offer seasonal desserts too. Have a lot of ice cream flavor choices. Service took a bit longer than thought would take.

We just moved to the area and were delighted to find that we live less than 5 minutes from an ice cream shop! Handel's makes their own flavors and there are so many to choose from - almost too many. I have to remind myself to try a different once each time. The Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownie flavor is intense.... More

After living in York for several years now we were looking for something different to do with our granddaughter during her recent visit. We decided to visit Handel's and try their ice cream. She loved it and so did we. We will definitely visit again. We ordered milkshakes and sundaes to eat on the spot and butter pecans to go... More

Every time we stop here we always leave happy. Tonight my wife had Mocha Cookie blast and loved it. I had a Boston Cooler I will definitely get it again. Handel's is hands down the best ice cream place in York.

We stopped off from driving to get a quick cone. My dad got a chocolate cone which was fine. My mint chocolate chip was disappointing as it had flecks not chips and there were only about 10 sprinkles on the whole cone. The coconut cream pie icecream was amazing. Definitely taste the icecream before getting a full cone.

Hello youvegotmidge. Thank you for stopping at Handel's Ice Cream in York. We're glad you enjoyed your ice cream for the most part. It sounds like you may have been disappointed because you were not familiar with our Mint Chocolate Chip. Handel's has been making it that way for 71 years now and it's actually one of our most popular... More
