Description: Mazzoli Ice Cream Company, Central Pennsylvania's oldest Italian creamery...
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.

We all scream for ice cream

Homemade ice cream at it's best. No inside seating but a pretty outside area to enjoy. Pricey, but hey it's Hershey. Try the tortoni ice cream. IT IS AWESOME!!!!!

I have been sampling the original recipes of Milton S. Hershey for six years, and the iced cream and gelato continue to be first-rate. During the spring or summer of 2014, the business was bought by another owner, who still uses the old recipes but is expanding into new territory. In summer, the cantalope and honey vanilla (new flavors) gelatos... More

Great suggestion on the Tortino. Great little place. Homemade is the best! We will certainly be back here. My wife said chocolate was amazing!

This is a local homemade ice cream place in a renovated garage. They have great flavors, like black cherry and tortoni. They have unusual hours--you should check before you go.

I consider myself an ice cream connoisseur. Any trip we go on, I head to trip advisor to find any good ice cream places in the vicinity, but only those who have ice cream I can't get anywhere else. Mazzoli's was one of the best so far. The tortoni flavor was superb, almond base with toasted coconut and then crushed... More

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.
