Best ice cream in town!

I can't come to visit my in-laws in Youngstown Ohio without a visit to handles! My husbands childhood favorite! The staff is young but great! Daily specials and they let you try as many as you want! Can't beat homemade ice cream! Yum!!!

No matter what flavors we get - always satisfied. Large chunks of nuts or fruit - always creamy. Been going for years - large portions and great taste.

What can one say about Handels. Literally, the best ice cream in the world. I love the salted caramel and chocolate malt with caramel. The Buckeye ice cream has baby buckeyes in it. All flavors are the best. If you ever see a Handels, stop by. They are cropping up all over the country.

This homemade ice cream began in 1946 by Mrs Handel at the corner of Midlothian & Market streets. It has changed hands only once, and maintains the original recepies. New flavors are added every month. Franchises have gone outside the State of Ohio. The chocolate pecan is the flagship flavor and includes roasted & salted pecan halves.

You must try Handels ice cream. It is so delicious. My favorite is butter pecan. Loaded with whole pecans. Most popular flavor is chocolate pecan.

Handel's Ice Cream began in Youngstown a number of years ago. Now there are stores all over northeast Ohio. The ice cream is great and the flavors varied and imaginative. Yesterday I bought a pint of chocolate pecan (a favorite) and something new to me, almond amaretto (no sugar added). I enjoy supporting local businesses, especially when they have great... More

This is about .3 of a mile from home. If I went every time I wanted to I'd be a roly poly. It is the absolute best ice cream you could ever eat. I'm addicted to the chocolate pecan with caramel. Tons of flavors to choose from, variety of cones, shakes, etc.... Worth a visit!
