Unfortunately, this is a special flavor that isn't offered regularly, but it was very good. I haven't found any hand-dipped ice cream since moving to the area about a year ago. I bought a single scoop and it was huge! I'm glad that I gave...More

My son and his family were visiting. We always go t the Chief during the summer. Great local ice cream. On hot days, there will be a line.

Quality of ice cream is very low grade, tasted like some cheap freebie stuff really. Have a fairly large selection of treats to choose from so if cheap tasting ice cream for a good buck is your thing....go enjoy. I will not be back.

We love taking a break and getting to the chief several times this summer. We all have our favorites. Mine is peanut butter ice cream and my wife is toasted coconut. Never disappointed. Always high quality. Regularly voted the best ice cream place in Indiana.

This little, local ice cream shop is a family tradition that we look forward to enjoying every spring/summer. The mint chip is my favorite!
