Don't ask how many calories! The greatest!

Seriously fantastic ice cream, home made, varying flavors, all good, especially the adult, hmmm, spirits, anyone?

If New Have is famous for Pizza and the origin of the hamburg sandwich then Hamden is famous for outstanding Ice Cream! The quaint Mom and Pop shack that sits in the lap of Sleeping Giant with a gentle swirl of a meandering stream is the perfect home for homemade style Ice Cream served with a smile and great customer...

They no longer carry Tofutti...a vegan dessert. They did a few years back and I keep stopping there hoping they will bring it back. No one is very nice about my request

There is nothing better after a long trek on the Farmington Canal Trail then a pit stop at Wentworth's. There are traditional and eclectic flavors and a consistency that keeps everyone returning cone after cone. I especially love Rum Raisin. Wentworth's is surrounded by a wonderful serene outdoor setting that is great on a warm sunny spring day.

Best ice cream in the state! Been going there for almost 25 years Dozens of homemade flavors available every day with special flavors each week Not open on Sundays, and be prepared for long lines especially during summer time on Friday and Saturday nights Definitely worth the wait

Wentworths ice cream is sinfully delicious. Great flavors, and a very nice outdoor area to sit and enjoy! It is also a short side trip off the Farmington canal bike trail. A nice way to spend a sunny afternoon, and after a bike ride I don't feel guilty about having a treat!

Have a summer place on Cape Cod where an Ice Cream shop named 4Seas rules the world... That good. But Wentworth matches if not betters. Peach is seasonal and fabulous but the Strawberry is always available and is incredible. Go here you will like!!

Often wish they were open on Sundays so we could go there more often when driving by that way, On the other hand , it's a family business and they need a day off, so we get that. I know they want to keep people moving, but make the outside seating a little more comfortable and well-lit after sunset without... More
