First had some at Strut Your Mutt and I'm a convert

No other ice cream will do now. It is creamy with imaginative choices as well as the old favorites. Very generous servings and nice people too. Thank you for supporting the Animal Welfare Society! I'm a fan from now on!

So, waiting in line, we listened as the solo employee told folks in front they always work alone. This ownership has no clue, thinking they are saving labor $$ when they could easily double or triple sales with more hands. The ice cream itself is delicious but over priced at 2.5 scoops as a large for 5 bucks... Plenty of... More

Dear Jim, Thank you for your review! The wait is the drawback, for sure. Sometimes, there is a 20-minute stretch of time where customers have to wait ten minutes or more for ice cream. I could put another server on for an hour, at $8 or $9 an hour, but it is very challenging to find a work-hungry individual residing... More

Thank you, you lovely fan of AWS! So kind of you to post in the dead of winter, when the shop is closed, when the morning temps are cold enough to freeze our nose hairs as we put our kids on the school bus, and the snow banks----ah, I promised to limit my mentioning the white stuff this year. Despite... More

The best ice cream (I've tried 4 flavors plus a malted shake) I've ever had. and the hot fudge sauce is amazing. You can also purchase hand-packed containers of the home made ice cream and fudge sauce to take home. Theresa is an ice cream ARTIST!

Mint cucumber, blueberry balsamic sorbet, and a host of other flavors we can't wait to try. I... More

Awesome homemade ice cream, great staff, wonderful outdoor atmosphere with relaxing Adirondack chairs. Coffee donut and Uncle Buddy cookies were our favorites.

Well, you have to find it first. It is behind a building that fronts Rt. 1 in Arundel so you have to make a little effort to find it. But, they make excellent premium ice cream there using carefully selected high quality ingredients. They label gluten free flavors so you don't have to guess. This place should be overrun with...
