Lets face it..Nothing beats a Malt Milk Shake at an old time Ice Cream Shop with the Jeep top down. :) Great ice cream. Great people. Great times.

On four recent days after shoveling snow for hours my exhausted body required a treat. I remembered a sports medicine physician from the Hershey Medical Center had advised to drink chocolate milk right after exercise such as biking. So I was off in my 4-wheel drive SUV to Massey’s Frozen Custard to try a chocolate milkshake. The new owners keep... More

If you like frozen custard, you must try Massey's. You will never be disappointed. The choices of flavors always makes it hard for me to choose what I want to order.

Just a great place to go and get ice cream or milkshakes. This place has been around as far back as I can remember.

My daughter got hooked on this place last summer, so when she went back to Carlisle, this was her first request to stop. Their Arctic freeze (like Friendly's Frenzy) was a great value. I got the chocolate covered banana, which at $2 and big, also a great value. We enjoyed going several times while in Carlisle for the week. When... More

I love the ice cream here, this is my favorite ice cream shack. It is seasonal, so you have to stop here before it closes in the fall! I always get the soft cone vanilla chocolate twist.

On Sunday night July 28, 2013 I took my two granddaughters to Massey’s Frozen Custard. The 10-year old said the 2-scoops of strawberry hand dip custard was excellent. The 8-year old said the 2-scoops of cookie dough hand dip custard was average. The bill was $5. They ate on a bench in front of the store.

A classic ice cream shop that serves frozen custard. Always very busy because it is very good! I love the hand dip homemade custard.

We stopped in after dinner. The staff was very friendly. They had a selection of sugar free ice cream which many ice cream places do not have. It was more than just plain vanilla. The ice cream was very good!

I stopped for gas in Carlisle on a long road trip. I was cross-eyed with Interstate ennui, so I rode through town, The old-fashioned look of Massey's appealed to me, and a quick check on tripadvisor's mobile app told me it had good ratings, so I treated myself to a small soft-serve. I love this sort of place, and the... More
