Good ice crean, less good italian ice

The rest of the family enjoyed their ice cream (free sprinkles!). When I ordered the italian cup I thought it would be like a gelato but it's not, looks like a very sugary sorbet.

Thank you for visiting with us. Yes, Italian ice is sugar, flavor and water. There is no diary. I only wish you had let us know while you where here and we have happily given you something else. Perhaps if you are still in the area, we can offer you one of our dairy products. Thank you again, and safe... More

Good ice cream place with lots of flavors to choose from. The ice cream "flight" featuring small scoops of four different flavors is a good choice if you can't decide.

Had a great time at Udder Heaven. Bob was so nice and informative! The ice cream was delicious and there were plenty of flavor options. Highly recommended. Do the churn-your-own ice cream if you have time.

Oh.my.gosh. The choices are incredible. There are numerous flavors of ice cream, sundae choices, other concoctions, milkshakes and more. This place!! I love ice cream anyway and opted for this rather than the $10 dessert at the fancy restaurant. I love their menu items' names! I had the Nutty Convert which was a sundae based on chocolate and peanut butter.... More

Read some good reviews and figured to take a shot at this place which was close to our hotel. Lots of flavors and ice cream concoctions available. Our family went for the chocolate, strawberry, blueberry cheesecake, berry sherbert and banana almond chip. A single small scoop would constitute a large serving in other places. The regular option is a massive... More
