  • An amazing amount of ice cream! I ordered a baby and I couldn't eat it all! It was soooo good!! This store sits outside of town, but it more than worth the drive!!  more »

  • I'm with my family for a vacation in Harbor Beach. Totally nothing is here. My sister in law told me that there's a very good ice cream. I told her everything will be good if there's something to buy in here. So we drove like 25 miles and I would admit. It was the best ice cream. It's not sweet at all and it is huge. One scoop is like a pint of ice cream. The price is cheaper than the one you can find on the grocery store. They made their ice cream everyday.
  • OMG and then some. Truly amazed by the taste of this ice cream. Oh, so full of flavor and so creamy. These are small ice creams.. I know right! Place was a little hard to find but definitely worth finding it. My ice cream from the store hasn't tasted the same, since we had this heavenly goodness
