This is pretty much the only good thing in Scranton. The Ice cream is delicious and you get huge -portions. Plus the value is great. You can even get it "scooped to-go" in half gallons (or smaller sizes). Staff is friendly and will let you try any of the many wonderful flavors. They have the basics and lots of fun... More

Mannings is well known to the locals. The ice cream shops are supplied by the Manning family dairy farm just outside Scranton The staff is friendly and the prices are very reasonable.

I have grown up having Mannings Ice cream. It's the absolute best! They have a huge variety of flavors. While you're there take some chocolate milk home. It's the best!

There's not much else you can say about Manning's. If you visit Scranton you have to go there for dessert. I've had ice cream in many places, and I've tried every store variety I've found. There's no comparison to Manning's. One question though. Ask them if they've changed the cookies and cream back to the original recipe. About 6 months... More

Mannings Farm Dairy (all natural) products are a TREAT!!! The quality shines through in every bite!!! I hope that they start taking (mail) orders online, because we just might have to relocate!!! Their chocolate milk is creamy and not too sweet.....I could drink it EVERY DAY!!! There are not enough words to describe their delightful, creamy, chock-full-of-goodies ice cream selections!!!...

We stopped here for dessert, and the ice cream is very good. The small shop offers between 25-30 flavors of ice cream. Everyone in my party enjoyed the flavors chosen. Be careful not too order too large a size--we thought that the 'regular' size was large enough for two people to share, especially after coming from dinner.

I grew up in New England where we visited a farm dairy for ice cream, and this is the real deal. I also worked managing an ice cream parlor in Main. Mannings ice cream is really special. Kids (and adults) love to visit the farm to see the cows that make the ice cream. Mannings milk is great too.

I am amazed at the quality of ice cream produced by this family farm. Local and popular what a great combination. I travel for work and with family on occasions but believe me when I say that any time I travel through PA I will make arrangements to stop in.
