Handels has great ice cream, tons of favors and many means to transport to ones tummy. The grandkids talk all year of Handel's visits during their winter break with us. FYI, family owned, not a chain with a great cupcake baker on premise too.

I will say that the ice cream here is delicious. However, some of the items are a little pricey, especially when buying for a family.

New snowbird to this region so needed a spot for ice cream for grandson. He is enamored with a blue ice cream found near our New England home. So I inquired as to blue ice cream, didn't have any but the owner stated he could easily make a batch and he hit a home run. Exactly on point. Ice cream... More

Very good ice cream. Wide selection of flavored. Huge sundae. Tasty. Softer texture. It was enjoyable. Quick, friendly service. Must have been their Ohio-background. Nice place to finish dinner.

Being from the Youngstown, Ohio area where Handels originated, I was delighted to see Handels come to SW Florida. It is by far the best ice cream! There are so many fresh flavors to choose from. Handels also offers fat free yogurt and at least one sugar free flavor of ice cream. To some, the prices may be a bit... More

Finding this home made ice creamery while I was shopping in the strip mall was a delightful surprise. I've never gone back to the lighting store, but I'm always looking for an excuse to stop at Handel's. The ice cream is delicious, so fresh and such large portions! For $3.50 (the standard size) one gets a HUGE dish or cone... More

Very disappointed with this visit! Ordered a turtle sundae which should have hot fudge and caramel- no hot fudge. Husband ordered a turtle with butterscotch instead of caramel with the hot fudge - he received hot fudge only! And the girl with the long ponytail who waited on us had a frown on her face while waiting on everyone! Service... More
