  • The observation deck was very interesting. We asked the host lots of questions and he was extremely knowledgeable on the product and the production. Only $1.00 for a scoop of ice cream is a great deal...  more »
  • Service was rushed and availability of the full product line was limited. I tried the camo cream and was not overly impressed. The camo cream is simply a twist pn Neapolitan.  more »

  • Ice cream is $1.00!! A nice gift shop. Pretty and very clean place. Just nothing to do. They need a tour. That would make it a fun stop.
  • It was nice, seeing the ice cream being made from the observation deck. However, they are currently remodeling and tours are not available. Good news is they sell ice cream for a dollar per scoop.
  • This is a great trip for kids. You get a huge serving of ice cream for just $1. There are great places to explore and during the week there is an observation deck.
  • Unfortunately the tours haven't started up again, but the store is open and scooping great ice cream. $1 ice cream scoops - standard favorites and unreleased flavors. Go for the various flavors! You'll find some gems.
  • We have been coming here since I was in grade school and it only gets better each time. We came by today on a whim and were helped at the ice cream counter very promptly. Very small crowd, everyone enjoying a clean ice cream parlor and delicious inexpensive scoops. Their country store is full of cutesy items. Nothing caught my eye but I think this stuff is popular. This facility is not doing tours right now but that's ok. We had fun anyway!
