This may be the best ice cream that I've ever had. My wife and I tried the Nutella one, pistachio as well as the regular chocolate one. It was really good stuff and we strongly recommend to try it!

J Fosters has great ice cream! They have a lot of flavor options and friendly staff. My personal flavor is the cookie monster. Definitely recommend coming to try their ice cream.
