To be quite fair, I was as full as a tick when I sampled the ice cream. And sample was all I could do. This is in entrance to the reading terminal market. So much delicious food. So I tasted cinnamon ice cream-the best I have ever had, butter pecan-definitely a 9 out of 10 and pumpkin pie flavor-delicious a... More

Went with a group of friends. Very good selection. TIP: try a sample before you buy. I got the butter pecan along with one of our friends. Both agreed it was more like vanilla with pecans. Other's in our group got different flavors and raved about them. Higher milk far than most creams. Service was very fast and pricing was... More

My favorite from Bassets is the butterscotch vanilla ice cream. Delicious! The line is long, that's how you know that the ice cream is good, but it moves fast, and you can sit at the counter and eat, if you want to take it home they have "cold ice" to pack your ice cream to travel with you. The best.

The pumpkin ice cream was TO DIE FOR! The line was long and disorganized but they seem to be used to it, we were served quickly and we loved it!

Not sure what the big deal is, to me it was just your average ice cream. I guess tastes are so subjective but I have to rate this as just average, on par with Baskin Robbins.

We had read multiple reviews (both on Trip Advisor and in DK Witness guides) on how amazing this ice-cream was and how it had to be tried to be believed – all I can say is DO believe the hype!! The choice available is amazing – I can personally vouch for rum and raisin and Irish Cream – they were... More

Stopped in at the Reading Terminal Market for dinner and grab a chocolate milkshake from Bassetts. Awesome! Definitely want to go back for the ice cream

Fabulous rich ice cream and a huge variety of flavours. Friendly service and big scoops. What more do you want from an ice cream stand? Give it a try when you're in Reading Terminal.
