It never ceases to amaze me that there is a line here rain or shine pretty much all year from Opening day to season close. The icecream is Hersheys, which is good, but is available elsewhere. The soft serve is really the more unique treat...More

Love this ice cream place, so many choices, everyone is happy. The line can be daunting, but goes quickly as the staff are very efficient. A sugar cone option is best new addition to menu! Still love the raspberry chocolate chip frozen yogurt. Seating is...More

This is the best ice cream place in our tiny state-no doubt. The soft serve is the creamiest, the cones, the freshest. There's always a line but it flies. This is a local treasure...treat it with the deserved reverence.

This place is about as retro as it comes in such a good way. From the crowded parking lot, to the walk up window, to the friendly, helpful, patient servers. I feel like a child again as we all hang out at the picnic tables...More

Frosty Freez serves only the BEST soft-serve real ice cream from Garelick Farms, and we offer 18 flavors of awesome hard ice cream from different vendors (Hershey's, Gifford's and Bliss Dairy, we picked our favorites!) We serve Newberry's Frozen Yogurt, which is a non-fat, low-sugar treat that is safe for most diabetics and people with lactose intolerance, and we also carry sugar-free and dairy-free options. We're known for our fast, friendly service and reasonable prices, we keep the place clean as a whistle, and we care about our community. We work hard to make our shop a great place to take the whole family, or a date, or your friends, or just treat yourself!
