And the flavours are unique and delicious. When asked if a single scoop could be more than one flavour we were told “with ice cream, anything goes”! A huge bonus for 2 kids who usually only finish a single and are denied a second flavour.

Abels is consistently ranked at or near the top of ice-creameries in the area. Although that's what my wife and I get when we go. There is also a selection of chocolates. We've never tried the chocolates but they look very tempting.
