“An ice cream portion for a epicurean”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

The ice cream shop i situated right in the center square. They serve a huge variety of flavors with additional accessories. Note that each scoop of flavor you order is a great ice cream only it self, 2-3 ice cream scoops are as a big meal. :) Super!


This is heaven for anyone who loves a lot of ice cream! During summertime there can be long queues, sometimes up to 30 minutes, but it's worth waiting!

“Make it for two”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

Huge portion for only 35 crowns, which is about four euros. So huge that one person can barely finish it on their own. The value is excellent, in other words.
There are many flavours, fresh wafer cones and a good amount of seating outside. The ice cream itself is pretty good.
Beware the lines - it's common to have to wait twenty to thirty minutes in line, but for the kids it's well worth it.
A personal note: There is no discernible effort in sustainability as far as I can tell - either from using organic products, promoting the decrease of waste, or purchasing milk products locally.

“LOTS of ice cream!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

I'd recommend some flavours with soft ice on top. Make sure to taste the strawberry crunch, dumle and creme brulee flavours. Homemade vaffles... Yum!

“Its All about the Cone, and the Mukglass”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

They make their own cones and they are amazing you can smell them from blocks away. I went there 3 of the 4 days I was in Karlskrona. The hard ice-cream is trucked in but still quite good an cool flavors like salt liquorice. The soft served "mukglass" is extremely good. A lot of locals get the special hard ice-cream with soft served on top. BTW the portions are huge one flavor ends up being around 4-5 scoops. A cone will run you $7-10 depending on what you get. The is a line during the day but it is componded by the pace of the people that work there; one person scooped and took the money while another just wondered around behind the counter. The one scooping even with the line she seemed like she was moving at the same pace if only one person was in the whole store to order.

“OMG a must despite the queue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

Not sure when there isn't a queue but it is worth it. Hand made waffle cones made at the door and a lifetime's ice cream in one gigantic cone. Arrive hungry!
