5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

We shared a medium cup of raspberry white chocolate ice cream. The most richest, best ice cream in my entire life.

“Super fun and inventive way to get ice cream!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

This place was great fun! It is a smallish ice cream place within an old cabinet factory in Nappanee. You order your flavor (kind of like Cold Stone where you can pick one of their flavors mix combos or create your own), they put it in a metal bowl in liquid form, then add liquid nitrogen while you watch! The kids size was too much for me to finish, so I would suggest only getting a larger size if you want to share!!

“Fun AND delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

We were furniture shopping in the area and decided that ice cream was needed before we headed out of town. Saw "Rocket Science" listed in a brochure and thought it would be fun. Stopped in and wandered around the many shops inside the Coppes Building before getting serious with the ice cream. They have "standard" recipes to choose as well as a long list of flavors to allow you to make your own concoction. We went with Death by Chocolate. All the fresh ingredients are added to a metal bowl and mixed well before a jet of liquid nitrogen hits the mixture. A few more stirs and couple more short blasts of nitrogen and viola! you have fresh ice cream. Fun to watch, and even more fun to eat.

“Cool concept”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014 via mobile

They mix the liquid and toppings then zap it with nitrogen to freeze into icecream. Kids think it's awesome, moms and dads think there are lots of flavor options!

“Best Ice Cream EVER!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

My husband and I were traveling through the area and were blessed with the opportunity to stay at The Olde Buffalo Inn B&B. The innkeeper there suggested we try Rocket Science. What a great recommendation!!! We actually ended up visiting this one-of-a-kind ice cream shoppe two days in a row, we enjoyed it so much!!!! Besides the awesome creaminess, and delicious flavors, you get to experience watching them actually making your ice cream. This is no ordinary process; this isn't ColdStone where they mix ingredients into existing ice cream... They take an extra creamy, perfected, family recipe, ice cream base, add in whatever you prefer for flavor, and freeze the ice cream, using liquid nitrogen, in a matter of about a minute or less!!! This all happens right in front of your eyes! It is quite exciting to watch and produces the most fresh, wonderfully creamy ice cream EVER!!! You can choose a flavor that they have created, or create your own flavor with an extensive list of ingredients. The couple who own it were the ones working both times we went in, and they are both wonderful, smiley, friendly people! It's a Must-See, if you are ever passing through Nappanee, IN!
