“Ice Cream and Snowballs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012

Bonkey's is the only place in town to get a snowball (not Italian ice). They have every flavor and great prices. The park is right behind this place too so it's a good stop on the way to play!

“Love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2012

We love this place. It is walking distance from our home, and a great after dinner treat. Their selection of snowballs and ice cream is extensive. They have something for everyone here. The prices are great and anything from the huge menu is fantastic. They will also make any combination that you want. If is not already on the menu, ask for it and they will create it. They get really busy during the summer months, so its sometimes packed, but worth the wait!

“Fun food - neighborly atmosphere - soooo many choices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2011

An easy walk from the Heritage Rail Train in New Freedom, Bonkey's offers snowballs and their own hand dipped ice cream and soft serve ice cream. They make sundaes and milkshakes with your choice of ice cream. The ice cream flavors include some exotic twists like Dulce de Leche. My favorite is mango italian ice. My husband loves the Great Googly Moogly which has chocolate, caramel and Whoppers. My daughter loves Cookie Monster which is, of course, blue and has crushed oreos and chocolate chip cookie dough. My son likes Blue Lagoon which is blue and has swirls of marshmallow with sprinkles. They also have a good assortment of candies - like giant candy buttons and yard long bubble gum.

Part of the fun of a trip to Bonkey's is sitting outside chatting with neighbors and friends.
