Dangerously, deliciously Addictive!

The whining starts any time we drive near. It is hard to think why we can't stop by for a treat. The ice cream is exceptionally delicious. Service is friendly. The options for toppings and flavors is overwhelming. We actually just like to enjoy the ice cream with no embellishments.

Cute little ice cream stand right on the strip. Tons of home-made ice creams to pick from. The kids will love the amusements and cow figures.

Visited this place several times during my honeymoon in Daytona Beach, and I have to say their icecream is amazing. After the first time we ended up visiting several times a day, and needless to say, I was never dissapointed. Nice staff, nice interios, amazing icecream!

I stopped in last night on my way to Italian dinner and had "dessert first." Very tasty Strawberry sundae in a chocolate shell. Yummy. Loved the cow decor. The retro table top Ms Pac Man reminded me of the hours my husband and I used to spend playing at one. Very cool. Good ice cream, good games, fun decorations.

I went to Daytona last year and tried Cow Licks its soooooo nice! It's got a great atmosphere and even better ice cream, I had the New York Cherry it was delicious. We are going back in May and will be paying Cow Licks a few visits this time.

The local people on the beach in Daytona told me about this place when asked if there was any good ice cream to be had near my hotel (The Shores). We did. I ordered Mint Chocolate Chip, and it was delicious. It had the crisp, clean taste of fresh mint, not that phony taste you get with store-bought ice cream.... More

Many different flavors of freshly made ice cream in vats. Seating is very comfortable and plenty of it. The entertainment area in an adjoining room features 5 new pinball games,1 air hockey table, and sit down car racing themed video games. The atmosphere is spacious and relaxing and the ice cream is absolutely delicious!

This place had really good ice cream for the whole family. They only accept cash so plan accordingly. Great place to stop after the beach.

Handmade ice cream and video games! You have got to pull over. Pac Man, Galaga and air hockey. Bring your inner teen and your kids. This place is a hoot.
