“Freezer-burnt ice cream”
Review of Rainbows End

Rainbows End
Ranked #1 of 9 Shopping in Jim Thorpe
Attraction details
Reviewed 18 May 2014

There is lots of cute, old-fashioned candy in the store, like rock candy and lemonheads, but that's the only thing worth buying. The chocolate-covered items, and the fudge are all just boxed stuff bought elsewhere, and the ice cream is freezer-burnt.

I got a cone of chocolate chip cookie dough and had to throw most of it out. As I was walking out, another couple was standing outside, also complaining the ice cream they got tasted old and freezer-burnt.

Par for the course for the whole town - it seems like shop keepers just take for granted there is a customer base coming for the outdoor activities, so they don't bother with quality (or even decent) products or customer service.

The cutest little candy and ice cream shop! Reminds me of Bill's Candy Store from Willy Wonka! They also carry lots of gifts and have tables and chairs to sit and eat your treats.

My husband and I always enjoy visiting Jim Thorpe, Pa, especially in the fall months. Our favorite place to visit is Rainbow's End. The folks who own this place couldn't be any nicer and offer history and make you feel right at home. We had a nice lunch there, and the selection of candies from the past and present are just great!! It is definately the place to stop and take a break, have an ice cream, little treat, and enjoy the atmosphere of the quaint little place.

Try this place out. We called in today having spotted Rainbows End on tripadvisor. The ice creams were great and we enjoyed some good banter with the owner. Centrally located in Jim Thorpe, it is a very convenient spot.
