Best ice cream I have ever eaten was Ubi ice cream in Maco, made from a purple root in the Philippines, that being said the ice cream at a 'Better Scoop' is delicious. First there was Maple Walnut then Vanilla then Peach all very good and flavorful. Next I'm going for the double chocolate, they have a good 20+ flavors.... More

Really good old fashioned, butter cream rich Ice Cream. The young gals dishing it up do a great job - fast, courteous and nice portion. Perfect place to fix your Ice Cream Jones with a plain cone or one of their superb Sundaes, Shakes or Malts!

We are snowbirds in Englewood, Florida. Our neighbors, here, have told us of an ice cream store with ice cream that tastes homemade. So after dinner, we tried it out. I have to tell you our neighbors were right. This Ice Cream, is almost as good as my Mom's was when growing up. The flavor choices are numerous. They offer... More

This place is just fun, and sometimes we skip dinner and have ice cream instead! It really is great ice cream with a lot of flavor choices. Some of the flavors are incredibly original and amazingly good! The carrot cake – crazy.

This place is addictive. The ice cream is always the best. I've not had one that was not over the top delicious. There were so many choices. All have been delicious. I've been going for 4 years now.

Just a wonderful place to stop in for a cool treat in a warm climatic area. I can't imagine that 4 people rated it terrible and 1 rated it poor. They have a map of the U.S. that you can pin your home location on. Neat to see where people have visited from. They have a loyalty program for frequent... More
