This has been our favorite ice cream spot for years. The Boston shake is delicious. The hard ice cream is homemade. It's all delicious, If there is s line as there often is now it moves quick and is worth the wait.

a Troy tradition. From March to October, join the line for a great ice cream. Soft ice cream flavors can be twisted or dipped. Add sprinkles. But my favorite is the hard ice cream in so many delicious flavors. A real treat.

If you like hard ice cream, this is your place. I prefer soft, so to me the selection is limited. My favorite is cream-cicle with rainbow sprinkles.

Great service with a smile and quality ice cream. Look forward to them opening in the spring and sad when they close in the fall.

A Lansingburgh institute. There are always lines for ice cream at the Snowman. They have excellent soft ice cream. The prices are fair and the cones a good size. The chocolate dip is an added pleasure. I know they have quite a menu but I always go for the soft cone dipped in chocolate.

Good ice cream, good shakes, nothing terribly special, but lots of variety. Stays open until around Columbus Day...a good stop if you're in the neighborhood.
