This is a small ice cream place that is very popular over the summer. I usually enjoy a twist cone but as fall approaches they have pumpkin pie with ice cream and other fun fall flavors.

Maybe it's just me but every time I have ice cream from here I have severe stomach cramps. I don't have the problem anywhere else.

Love the twinkle cones. Lots of soft serve selections where there's a choice for everyone even a baby come that's only 25 cents!

They have lots of choices. Hard and soft ice cream available. Girls are friendly even when the lines can be quite long, they do there best to go quickly and accurately.

Nothing better than waiting in line at the Dari Ripple on a summer night then ordering hand-scooped butter pecan ice cream with hot fudge! Or a delicious (and really hard to find) old fashioned chocolate soda! Ask for hard vanilla ice cream and extra chocolate. You won't be sorry

My husband and children can hardly wait each year until the Dairy Ripple opens. There is nothing fancy about this ice cream stand, but the lines are always long especially on hot summer nights.

I've heard about Dari-Ripple ever since we moved here. I've been. I don't get it. I like DQ better, although I've only had the ice cream (sundaes, shakes, etc). I think it's more a nostalgic thing than the actual flavor.

Summer and fall seasonal foods and desserts at reasonable prices! Always a great view of the river and park.
