“Out of the way ice cream”
Review of Half Pint Creamery

Half Pint Creamery
Ranked #6 of 13 Dessert in Gettysburg
Restaurant details
Reviewed 6 April 2018

As you head north on 34, you come across Half Pint Creamery in a fairly new building with its own parking lot. That makes it different from so many ice cream shops in Gettysburg, where parking is notoriously difficult. Unfortunately, their ice cream isn't much better, despite some favorable reviews.

I tried 4 kinds, but only bought two because the first two, Red Velvet Cake and Peach, had very little taste. The cold seemed to put any taste they might have into hibernation. I finally bought a pint each of White Chocolate Cherry, which featured ribbons of cherry and white chocolate chips. It's okay, but not great. The other, Chocolate Heartbreak, is much better with chunks of brownie in chocolate ice cream. At least, you can taste that.

Service was okay, and since we had the place to ourselves, the server had the time to give us tastes of the flavors we asked about. I'm still looking for some really tasty ice cream in Gettysburg. Maybe I'll find it before autumn.

Happy to find this fantastic ice cream shop open on a cool March evening! Smooth, lip smacking, creamy concoctions live up to their titles/names. Tradition is also a mainstay here though - shakes, freshly made waffle cones!! Irish Cream, salted caramel, Fruit Loops, Cadbury Egg, Peeps ( actually blue and marshmallowy ), peanut butter, tracks, and the list goes on to about 30 flavors!! Yummy!! If you get a dish of ice cream, they put a piece of waffle cone on the side so you can also enjoy this sweet treat!! Good family establishment that makes a creamy old fashioned ice cream from scratch!

Fantastic, unique flavors. Great supply of pints to-go or build your own dish or cone. Also serves dog treats!

Wow! The ice cream is superb! Multiple freshly made flavors served in waffle cones or dishes and only $3, including tax! Unbelievable value! It's a good thing I don't live closer or I would be eating here all the time and needing the next size wardrobe!

Found this place while driving around Gettysburg. A mile or two outside of the main downtown, but worth the drive out. Good choice of flavors. Also had ice cream cakes, sandwiches, etc. frozen and ready to go. Friendly service and reasonable prices!
