The ice cream is great. The stores do not serve shakes after 9:30 pm. Don't expect to build an ice cream cone of your choice....one flavor per cone, no exceptions.

What can I say? The ice cream is rich and delicious. They have so many flavors from which to choose. I am glad we do not live too close as I would not be able to resist the temptation.

We love Chocolate Shoppe ice cream. They have several locations but also set up stands at local events. This weekend I took my 8 year old daughter to one of their newer locations -- a window front on Atwood Avenue. She wanted us to get a pint of the Choco Carmel Latte - it was incredible. We sat out back... More

If you have any food allergies, this is a good place to stop. They have a list of food allergens in their ice creams that they will willingly share with you. I need to avoid lactose and nuts and my husband needs to avoid gluten. We were able to review their product lists to avoid our allergies. I had the... More

Lots of flavors, friendly staff, you can have as many tastes as you want while you decide what to order. Creamy ice cream, fresh, standard flavors and quirky ones. And a great sign on the wall that says “if you want low-cal, eat carrots.” This is the real thing - rich, creamy, loaded with good stuff. We went twice in... More

Definitely good ice cream. We had three small one scoop items...cames to over $12. I will probably return...but might try a diff place first.

This not for the faint if heart. Rich ice cream loaded with pure genius combinations. New favorite is "this $#!/ just got serious" with salted Carmel ice cream, fudge ripples, and cashews. They let you sample, it's hard to choose with all the options. While it's the best stuff on earth, one-scoop is enough.

Their Mackinac Island Fudge is to die for. Selections are very good and quality high. There are a number of outlets around the area. Unfortunately, not all flavors are found at all stores. We live on the West side and must travel to East Madison for our favorite. We have asked them to carry another flavor but thus far no... More

Perfect way to end our trip. Got a tasty, coconut almond shake and my wife got a waffle cone with chocolate. Staff are so nice and patient and float from side to side making sure everyone gets served, ask for a sample if needed.

Boils down to this - "Single" cone = 2 scoops of ice cream. "Double" = 4 scoops of ice cream. Want 2 different flavors? You need to purchase 4 scoops of ice cream. 4 scoops is a long way into a Pint of ice cream, and is way too much, and expensive. The owners want you to get 4 scoops... More
