This ice cream hole is an institution. It's a must visit every time you're in town. It's kids friendly and the ice cream is money in the bank!

One of my favorites of all time. Love the blend in options. Can't speak to their chocolates and candies, but their ice cream is darn good. If you're int he area, don't miss it.

We buy ice cream cakes for birthday parties from here all the time. Great cakes. Always a hit with everyone. Any flavor combination you want.

Be ready to stand in line, but don't be overwhelmed, as it moves pretty quick. Enjoy all of the people coming out with their treats, gives you a better idea what to get.

I came in to purchase some cherry vanilla ice cream. Sometimes you figure that ice cream is ice cream. Boy, was I wrong! This ice cream was the best ice cream I have ever had. And I could not believe how many cherries it had in the ice cream also. You spend a little more than the ice cream in... More

Blended is a neat twist on mixers and such, but the lack of nuts and crappy service made me wish we went to the ice cream place across the street.

Can't tell you how many times I've been to this shop. A fantastic choice, friendly staff and a great selection of add ins Unfortunately, on this occasion I made the wrong choice - my fault not theirs. I should have made use of their tasting offer

I have been eating ice cream at Thomas Sweets my entire life and have yet to find better ice cream anywhere else. They also have a signature dish called Blend-in which is a lot of ice cream but just so tasty.
