“best ice cream!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Very creamy and tasty. Get it in a bowl b/c the cones aren't as good as the ice cream. I had chocolate and it was very very creamy. I'm sure the other kinds are great. Normally I don't really like ice cream but this was great.

“best ice cream in North America”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

stopped at cows on recent vacation to the Canadian Rockies. My husband and I enjoyed the Ice Cream so much we had to go out of way to have another cone before heading back to MN. I love good ice cream and this is the best I have had.Well worth the wait in line!,,,
