Description: Mazzoli Ice Cream Company, Central Pennsylvania's oldest Italian creamery, was founded in 1956 by Mr. & Mrs. Fred Mazzoli in Hershey. Mr. Mazzoli served as Milton S. Hershey's personal dairy chef at The Hotel Hershey and Hershey Creamery from the late 1920's to the early 1940's. He was a key confidant to Mr. Hershey on product development, and they worked hand-in-hand experimenting with flavors and ingredients to craft just the right frozen desserts.

There is a reason why this place has been making ice cream since 1957. Their ice cream is simply the best. Get the tortoni. Do not miss this place if you're visiting Hershey.

I made a spur of the moment decision to stop at Mazzoli's and celebrate some good news I had just received. It was the middle of the afternoon on a rainy day so I was the only customer. The place is very small so I can imagine it might get crowded on a hot summer day. The service was excellent,... More

The ice cream we ordered here was very rich and delicious. There is not much room inside the shop although there is outdoor seating available.

I love trying to find places that have homemade ice cream and creative flavors. This place was down a small side street and a great surprise. The butter brickle was great and the tortoni was delicious (it was an almond custard and coconut combination).

I have been to Mazzoli's my whole life! My grandmother lives only a few blocks away and I would walk there as a child. It is really good ice cream! Coconut is awesome! Enjoy.

This little place is a gem. Be sure to read the history of Mazzoli's while you're there. The ice cream is delicious and taking home an ice cream pie is always a good idea! When they're closed, I buy their ice cream at Karns!

Best home made ice cream in the area. Nice outdoor seating, but indoor seating is limited. Changing flavors, friendly staff, huge portions.
