Stopped in with the family on a short road trip in southeastern Arizona. We were at first a bit daunted by the 50 flavors of soft serve, but when my son realized he could have egg nog soft serve (in March!) he was set. Wife had a "glacier", and I had three scoops of Blue Bell. All very good, and... More

We have used this ice cream place 4 times and never been disappointed. We do only get a medium or large chocolate dipped ice cream cones but they are always GREAT. Highly recommend this as an after dinner dessert stop. $ 2.50 for medium dipped cone and well worth it.

I came to this place when stopping in Benson for gas and was amazed that they had so many flavors! Muchbetter than DQ! The girl who was behind the counter wasn't at all bothered by how many questions I had to ask (as they have a huge menu and most of it sounds delicious). I decided on the Prickly Pear... More

Soft serve ice cream that melts immediately or blue belle hard scoop. Not worth the calories. Filthy outdoor seating.

This is a quaint little DQ type place in downtown Benson. Basically the same as DQ but with many many more flavors of soft serve (something like 60) and 6-8 flavors of Blue Bell ice cream. They also have lattes but I haven't tried those. Definitely a must stop if you want an ice cream fix.

They have 60 flavors of soft serve and 8 flavors of hard ice cream. In the heat of the desert this place is a must stop. There are shaded areas for sitting outside.
