My favorite is vanilla peanut butter. Smooth creamy and just yummy! My family of 7 prefers Dips to Two Scoops. Unlike Two Scoops staff here is friendly and patient every time.

Stopped here after dinner to grab ice cream with friends. Shop is very cramped, and the only seating they offer is chairs lined down the front porch, no tables. Decent variety of flavors.
