“Cute roadside ice cream stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

Been a Island landmark between Hunter River and Summerside for quite sometime. I have nothing negative to say but good praise. I enjoy their ice cream since I was young....don't drive by...drive in!!

“Same as most other dairy bars”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

It’s not like it is better than the average dairy bar. Their softie ice cream arrives in a bag like everyone else’s and their frozen fries are the same as those served at other places that serve frozen fries. (At least some dairy bars make their own fries.)

It is a place where people like to be seen for some reason though. So if you want to be seen at a dairy bar, then this may be the spot for you!

“Frosty Treat Frosty Treat Are we there yet??”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

An Island tradition. My grown kids still ask to go to Frosty Treat when they come home every summer. It's as much about the experience as the food but the food is good value

“Perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

Our hosts suggested with check out the Frosty Treat while in New London for a week. It was perfect. Things on PEI seem to shut down a little early (compared to the states) in September but the good ole Frosty Treat was open. Our group of 4 went one night and had great burgers and we stopped by a few nights later for awesome ice cream. They have picnic tables, great food, and friendly employees. Don't miss it. The chocolate soft serve was awesome!
