Order small-batch kosher ice cream from The Chocolate Shoppe, a family-owned dairy in Madison, Wisconsin -- and/or the signature hand-dipped, chocolate-covered frozen bananas.

The owner had a monotone sarcastic humor that made us like him. The ice cream flavors were really good! I would love to go back and try some of the different flavors shakes he had on the board. Plus I will always want more chocolate pb covered bananas. They were so awesome!

Sweet Pea's sells a brand of ice cream that is from Madison, Wisconsin, called Chocolate shop ice cream. This particular brand is very good, however the problem with it at this location is they keep the ice cream too long and it becomes freezer burnt. Apart from that the shop is very dirty, outdated, and poorly ,maintained. If you glance behind the counter you will notice a milkshake mixer from a by-gone era (its from the 50's), another thing you will notice is a grubby peanut butter tub that is encrusted to the counter. Along with that the entire establishment is dusty and looks like it does not get cleaned. If you are able to look past all that then it is worth it for how good the ice cream is.

Sweet Pea always has interesting flavors that you never heard of and cool stuff like carrot-based frozen dessert that tastes just like ice cream. Their chocolate covered frozen bananas are a must, especially if you like peanut butter.

We have been going to this place since it first opened more than 10years ago. Named after the owners daughter who is all grown up now. It's a classic small town ice cream parlor serving a wide variety of flavors, malts, sundaes, etc. Fun place to visit, and the owner will engage in a lively conversation with you while he accepts your order. Nothing fancy but we always left the place with a smile
