Lots of flavors and options. Definitely worth a visit to cool off or after dinner. I didn't try the fudge but it looked yummy too.

The icecream was tasty but count think 1small scoop of Hershey's ice cream on a sugar cone is worth four bucks. That's a bit much. The shop was a little pricey for me !

This little jewel is worth the trip if you are anywhere from more head to swansbourgh sitting in a little shopping strip on Atlantic Beach. It serves the best ice cream we were able to find.

After we had dinner out, my husband and I decided to have something sweet. We are glad we chose this ice cream shop. There was such a variety of flavors, it was difficult to make a decision. But we did finally decide on Moose tracks...More
