If you are looking for richer and more expensive ice cream than the typical soft serve, you will like Handel's. The selection of ice cream flavors could change more often but I love the chocolate pecan. My favorite was chocolate almond buttercreme but they haven't had that flavor for years. Strawberry shortcake is a special flavor this month an fit... More

After a few hours of laborious work we decided an ice cream was in order and stumbled upon Handel's. I had coconut cream pie and my husband had black raspberry. Both were outstanding! I had bits of coconut and what I think was pie crust in mine and my husbands black raspberry had raspberry truffles bits in it. He LOVED... More

The hot apple dumpling and chocolate brownie horricane are my favorite at Handels!!! Many unique flavors and a lot of ice cream for the money.

We go here all the time, and when my dad is in town, he ALWAYS wants to go here! It's rare that I've tried something I didn't like. Their seasonal flavors are good, and you can always count on certain flavors being there. They are a chain, but the only one I know of in this part of PA. I... More

This is where you want to go for ice cream in York! Don't even think about the decision--just go there! We have been going here for years and it is truly fantastic. The latest treat was what I got in this last trip - Handel's Thin Mint Pop, which in Thin Mint ice cream dipped into probably the best semi-sweet... More

Handel's has the best ice cream in York - I love any of the flavors that include caramel - Pecan Praline is my favorite by far. Lke one reviewer said the service is slow. But I can forgive that because you always get what you pay for - if you buy a pint you get a pint of ice cream... More

Ice cream is good but they don't change flavors except for flavor of month. They have lines because there is usually one person waiting on window and two people goofing off doing nothing.

Handel's has keyed in on good-quality ice cream and has done a good job of delivering the product. Stopping there is reminiscent of the many stops we made at ice cream places while I was growing up in the 60's. It's walk up service and the young people that work there are well-trained to be efficient and friendly. Orders are... More

Excellent milkshakes - 4 scoops of ice cream in regular size milkshake - Very thick - need to eat with a spoon until it melts a little. I like to customize my milkshake and have them use 2 scoops of 2 different flavors. Staff is always very friendly and willing to make my order whatever way I like it! My... More

There is a reason that this place is open even the winter. The ice cream is so smooth and delicious. I love getting a sugar cone. They have lots of different flavors but the best is Chocolate Cake Batter. Unfortunately, they don't always have it. The service is great too.
