Little gem

Unique ice cream, you can't find it this good not even in NYC. Dirty chocolate is the flavor to go, salted caramel also is so delicate and delicious. The quality of the produces they use is top notch.

SOCO has really done it right. Great ingredients combined with great recipes and processes have yielded an ice cream that is almost perfect. Chocolate lovers should definitely try the Dirty Chocolate (named for how messy the manufacturing process is). The scoop shop in downtown Great Barrington is warm and friendly. This place woud have rated a 5, but the price... More

You can get SoCo in the local grocery stores, but there's nothing like going to the actual ice cream shop. The brownie topping is excellent. Lots of flavors, both expected and unexpected.

Incredible Ice Cream!!! There is a variety of great flavors. We had the Banana Brownie and the Salted Caramel. Delicious, Delicious, Delicious. The Banana Brownies was fantastic. There is also a very cute server with short blonde hair with pink highlights.

Cute ice cream parlor with lots of fun flavor choices. As soon as I heard about the ginger ice cream I had to try it and it was delicious.
