  • Love the "Tree Sap"... made with real Vermont maple syrup and walnuts. OMG Delicious!
  • Homemade ice cream!
  • Worth. Every. Calorie. Some of the best ice cream I've ever had. So creamy and creative. Try the Salted Caramel and the Mexican Chocolate.
  • Try the Salty "C"
  • Cant believe anyone would be disappointed by this ice cream. If you like ginger, you have to try O Snap
  • So many choices, so little time. Try The River Runs Through It.
  • Best ice cream on the North Shore, IMHO.
  • Try Mexican chocolate
  • Kinda disappointed. Their version of coffee ice cream, Mug Up, was more mocha than coffee.
  • The Oh Snap! Ginger ice cream might be the best ice cream evah!!!!
  • Oh Snap! Rocks!!!!
  • Everything is good here! But I definitely recommend "A river runs through it"!
  • If in the area, we stop in. Before dinner, after dinner... no matter. We dont get close to Downeast and not swing by.
