Had 3 scoops of Dirty Chocolate ($6)

My boyfriend and I shared 3 scoops of Dirty Chocolate but about 1/2 way through I wished I had a second flavor. It was a very good, dark chocolate flavor. We are both chocolate lovers but it seemed a bit much. I just don't know much about the Hoopla for this place. We had been told "we needed... read more

The house made ice creams were declicious. i tried the maple bacon and the banana brownie. The maple bacon had real bacon in it and you could actually taste real banana in the banana brownie. Nice to get a scoop and stroll along the town.

Really delicious ice cream, hefty scoops and reasonably priced. We can't comment on the seating because we usually get our cones and walk around G.B. or sit on one of the newly added sidewalk benches.

When you're done with your dinner at one of the nearby eateries this is a logical end stop. Good portions in an ice cream parlor type atmosphere with a hippie twist. Stopped here after a beauty treatment and it was just the ticket.

I was craving a twist in a cone, so I searched for ice cream places in the Barrington area. SoCo Creamery came up as a popular place with a lot of good reviews. Sadly, they do not have soft serve, but the Mint Chip I did get was wonderful. At first, I thought their prices were high, $4 for 1... More

You get what you want here in wonderful ice cream, lots of choices, many ways to serve it, and priced appropriately for a premium product. Parking might be an issue, but I doubt it.

Best ice cream around! Fresh and locally made, always new flavors plus the staples you love. I'm a sucker for black razz chip and the seasonal pumpkin.

The Good; My wife said her ice cream was one of the best she has had. On a very nice block. The Bad; My son's and mine was simply OK. The Ugly; The very enormous sized Jeff Goldblum fly that was near the spoons and napkins.
