The best variety of ice cream and best tasting.

3 B Ice Cream is not open during the winter, but during the rest of the year it is open. They have a nice variety of flavors of ice cream plus all kinds of shakes, sundaes, splits etc. They also have menu including burgers, sandwiches, fries, drinks.

When you see it looks like a simple place few people outside during the day but on a nice summer night post dinner its packed nightly. They offer a number of hand packed flavors. With the biggest Banana split I've... More

always a friendly staff. all flavors are tasty and the servings are large. On hot nights you can expect longer lines but this gives you a chance to shop the different flavors.

We enjoyed the ice cream that we got here. It is not too far from the hotels off of 283. We will come back here if we are back in the Hershey area.

I don't know if they've always had the same owners, but the choices, quality and quantity hasn't changed for as far back as I can remember. Everyone can get their favorite flavor and will have more than enough, as they have really big servings! They also make family size subs that are pretty excellent. I love supporting local small businesses,... More

They make a great butter pecan and cookie and cream ice cream. They are a little on the pricey side, but the ice cream is good!

Although sandwiches are available, for us this is an ice cream stop. We especially love the flavor choices. Their portions are so large that I usually order the child's size. Although it is a walk up venue, you can enjoy your treat at tables located at the edge of the parking lot. Popular with the locals
