I'm thinking that the biggest problem was that it wasn't "hard" to start with as it began to melt onto the top of my hand before... More

David, we SINCERELY apologize for the ice cream not being hard! We had both compressors replaced in July on both of our dip cabinets, and have been having a difficult time trying to get them adjusted properly.

This is by far the best ice cream anywhere! Every flavor you can think of. My daughter and I are lactose intolerant but we can eat a big cup of their soft serve without problems.

I have always loved scoops. The service is fast and friendly, there's a positive atmosphere, and most importantly great ice cream! Hershey's ice cream is my favorite. It's always sad when they close for the season. I look forward to it re-opening every summer! Definitely make a stop here, you won't regret it ☺️

Afte traveling down to the wharf in Onancock we were delighted to see this neat ice cream shop (Hershey's is my wife's favorite!). Worth the drive off Highway 13 towards the Bay...drive all the way to the wharf and bike or kayak there (rentals at Mallard's)
