Awesome tasting ice-cream. Rich and really flavorful. Chocolate pecan is one of it's top sellers. Not for the diet conscious. But great for a neat, sweet and heavenly treat. Sugar cones available also.

It is a walk up ice cream parlor with home made ice cream. It is the best. A location is coming soon to Hermitage, PA!

I have been eating Handel's for the last 60 years since it was at the original location on Market Street. I was always a treat when my uncle Lou would take "us kids" to Handel's The chocolate pecan it still the same as it was back then. The best you will get. You must try it when in town.

Handel's Ice Cream was born Youngstown, Ohio and no other hometown ice cream comes close. Chocolate Pecan so creamy that it needs to be served in a dish on a hot day. Voted one of the best ice creams in the world makes us Youngstowner's proud! Check out the humble beginnings of this wonderful treat. http://www.handelsicecream.com/history.html

I saw a number of reviews claiming Handel's to be the best ice cream and wanted to see what the hubbub was all about. The location I went to (seems there are a few) was a road side stand at 3735 South Ave in Youngstown (not listed on the Handel's site). The person working there acted as if the 3... More
