Snowman Ice Cream opened last Friday in Lansingburgh and you couldn't find a parking spot with a 2-block radius.

The make the ice cream on premise. This is probably why it's so good. My favorite is the Butter Pecan. Have had this other places, no one comes close to Snowman's.

What a fun place to stop and at a place that is legendary in the area! My friend and I had the soft serve ice cream. The cone was very tall and I had mine dipped in cherry -- it was so fun to sit outside on their benches and enjoy a treat on a hot day!!!

My wife and I took a ride to Troy last night to go to Dinosaur Barbecue and get desert at Snowman. The place was packed, but like other people said the line moved pretty quickly. I had a regular size cone (2 huge scoops 1 Brownie and 1 Snickers) and as soon as I saw it I knew I needed... More
