Went to Massey's for an ice cream on a hot day when we were visiting Carlisle during the Chrysler show! It was terrific! Hand dipped flavors change daily and included fun flavors in addition to the regulars (vanilla and chocolate). I tried the maple bacon and it was great! They also had gluten free cones - a real treat for... More

Great place to go if you have a hankering for a very good milkshake. The ice cream is right up there too. Can't go wrong by stopping at Massey's for a treat.

Finished dinner early and decided to stop by Massey's for dessert. Caught it at just the right time; no waiting, which is very unusual. Ordered our usual, an Artic Mount and a Sundie. The selection of hand dipped custard favors is overwhelming. You always get large scoops and lots of topping. Best custard and value in the area. A 'Must... More

Don't leave Carlisle before stopping at Massey's Frozen Custard! I adore their tall, thick malted milk shakes. To die for! Their sundaes are excellent as well, but can't compare to the milkshakes. The shakes are so big that you can savor them for an hour and won't be hungry again for hours! It's a popular place with lots of parking... More

The ice cream here is delicious and they have a huge selection with decent prices. Family of 5 can get served for less than $15 and the Dickinson College campus is nearby for a nice walk.

As they say, when in Rome, do as the Romans! Well, when in Carlisle, you should follow this directive as well and stop by Massey's. The town staple is open when appropriate (warm months) and is frequented by locals (and non-locals who try their fares) from open to close daily! Take the time to drop by...and I guarantee you'll be... More

Desiring desert after dinner, went to Massey's Frozen Custard. They had many flavors, sizes, and specialities. The amount of the cone was humongous.

A huge locals hang out and favorite for generations, Masseys, just outside of downtown Carlisle near Dickinson College, has been pumping out delicious custards, creams and shakes for what feels like forever. A must visit. Pints to go are a great option to take home!

I was back in town for the Ford Nationals and had to come back again this year. They had (3) sizes of sundaes. Baby, Small, Medium, and Large. I ordered the Baby. It was bigger than most of the chain store places "Large". Great ice cream. Thanks again!!
