Wow!

This is the kind of ice cream I would expect in Wisconsin! It's reasonably priced, but the best part was they have a gluten done. My son was beyond excited. It had been years since he could have a cone!

We've gone to the Chocolate Shoppe many, many years. It's really good ice cream and there's all kinds of creative and tasty choices. My favorite is Zanzamint -- a dark chocolate and mint swirl. They also have frozen yogurt and ices, as well as all kinds of floats, shakes, and ice cream desserts.

Based on reviews that I had read, I was expecting, at the very least, very good ice cream and perhaps even excellent ice cream. Well, it was merely good. It was kind of a disappointment, as we passed at least two other ice cream parlors that seemed busier than The Chocolate Shoppe. It makes me wonder if I'd have been... More

My husband and I went here after dinner. Always have the hard choice of picking chocolate peanut butter or cookie dough so we each got one and shared. Ice cream is really rich and creamy. You really don't need a lot but it tastes so good you could eat a pint!

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
