“Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

It is an average ice cream shop. Nothing fancy. Web page said all natural... No. Large portions and some unique flavors. I was looking for a true creamery with home made.

Helpful?

Hi,
We are very sorry you feel that way, We receive our ice cream from bliss dairy in North Attleboro, the ingredients they use are ALL-NATURAL, as well as local, and we have some home made flavors usually between one or two a week.

We hope for you to give us a try again!

“good ice cream”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

The ice cream was good but didn't have the odd flavors that I expected. The only kind of odd one was salted chocolate covered pretzel. Thought it would be more interesting. Small shop but pleasant. Not much seating and not themed. Would visit again but not go out of my way.

“EEK! Some scary flavors!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014 via mobile

A cute ice cream shop directly across from the witches museum that has some frightful flavors. How about vanilla-chocolate-chip-bacon? Wow, not a fan (tasting spoon) but the mint chip was scrumptious, as were watermelon sherbet, and raspberry-chocolate chip yoghurt. Recommend.

“Tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

Although the store itself was a bit small, the ice cream was very good, especially after a long hot walk in Salem.

“The best ice cream ever, delicious !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

Just happened to call in to the Salem Screamery for an ice cream whilst visiting Salem and it certainly was a great decision.
The ice creams were big and definitely the best ice cream we've ever tasted.
My husband chose a flavour which consisted of whole almonds that were so fat they were like hazelnuts. After a difficult few minutes contemplating which flavour I would have I went with cotton candy. It was amazing.
Such a wide choice of ice cream, excellent value for money this has to be the place to go for an ice cream when in Salem. Wish you were closer to home, we would never be away!
