Insane nuimber of choices!

I don't think I've ever been to an ice cream store with so many choices. Being from out of town and being our first visit to Rehoboth, we decided to try it based on the huge line outside and the huge number of choices. The crack ice cream was probably one of the best ice creams I have ever... read more

You absolutely must come here! Resist the urge to go to all the familiar ice cream shops. This place has some of the craziest concoctions that you cannot get anywhere else and more flavors than I’ve ever seen. “Booger, Better than Sex, I Don’t Give a Fork, Crack, Zombie, The Ish is Off the Hook” – really!! There’s such depth... More

This is THE ice cream store for ice cream enthusiasts. They have every flavor anyone could imagine and many flavors you wouldn't want to imagine.. Excellent Mayan chocolate with a bit of hot pepper, exotic flavors like bacon that I don't even want to try but it's fun looking at customers reactions to all the flavors.

I visit Rehoboth once a year, and The Ice Cream Store is a must-visit for me. This year I went three times-- the flavors I had were pound cake, butter brickle, and "graham slam"-- they were all awesome! It is great how they always have strange and unique flavors. They also have containers of various sprinkles which anyone can use... More

Unlike so many of the other reviewers, my family did not know anything about this place. We wandered upon it while looking for something to do. There were significant lines when we approached...we weren't sure if it was because it was really good or we picked the wrong time. The lines moved quickly, and quite honestly, we are glad that...

If you are an ice cream lover, then this is the place for you. You can't image the number of flavors and combinations of flavors available for the tasting. The shop is located just steps from the boardwalk on the main road entering Rehoboth. The ice cream is about $5 for a small cup size. Although this experience could be... More

We had read the reviews and knew there was a lot of hype around this ice cream. We were unsure if all the rave reviews were just because of the gimmicky 100+ flavor options or because the ice cream really was that good... we gave it a shot, and YUM, it was great. We tried a few different flavors and... More

We are usually in Rehobeth ‘in season’, and are not willing to wait in the lines to try this Ice Cream Store. We were there this past Sunday, and the lines were really small, so after walking off our Fish and Chips that we had earlier, we decided to finally give this place a try. I am not sure IF... More

We visited Rehoboth Beach to visit some friends. They took us to this INCREDIBLE ice cream establishment. If they don't have the flavor you want, then it probably doesn't exist! Plan to spend a few minutes just looking at the flavors that they have. If you want to experiment, they will give you a sample. Their ice cream is somewhat... More

This place, right on the avenue near the beach is some of the best ice cream you will find. They have tons of choices, with some wacky flavors and if you can't decide there is a wheel to spin to decide for you.
