If you like Hershey's you'll love The Big Dipper. Loads of flavors in any combination with lots of toppings for sundaes. Soft serve available too.

My husband and I went by The Big Dipper recently for the first time. They have a large variety of hand dipped Hershey's ice cream flavors as well as soft serve.

The Big Dipper is a small ice cream parlor with a HUGE menu. You can get any combination of ice cream flavors, shakes, or sundaes you can imagine. They even have no sugar added ice for those who have to watch their sugar intake.

Best ice cream in town, large selection, great shakes and cones. Go every week. A few tables inside and more outside, could use a few umbrellas on the outside tables.

Found this on a whim... Google sent us. So many great flavors, you could go here every day. Won't break the bank. If I had one critique - I would love a visible board with the ice cream flavors!

We found this place by accident. The staff was very nice and efficient. The ice cream was served in nice portions and everything was prepared as expected.

They serve Hershey ice cream, lots of flavors. I got red raspberry with chocolate, very good. It not going to be the most amazing ever but it's also half the price of the big creamery stores.

I haven't been here in awhile, but back when I lived in Hagerstown, my wife and I went every few weeks in the summer. I remember there being a huge selection of hand-dipped flavors and that I always got a waffle cone. There is plenty...More
