The ice cream did not have the consistency of what I would expect from a place that boasts to have homemade ice cream. The black cherry flavor was not very strong and was really... More

Heard good things about Cow Licks but left disappointed. Sampled many different flavors of ice cream that were advertised as "homemade". Each flavor tasted as though it was vanilla with artificial flavoring added I.e. there were no bananas in the banana ice cream, no strawberries in the strawberry ice cream etc. Ended up getting a vanilla malt - nothing spectacular....

This place is NOT up-to-date. A tad grimy looking. Kids would probably love it. I must say, even though the ice cream selection was VERY limited and crusted over....when you got to the real deal, it was very tasty.

Homemade ice cream that was to die for. I had coconut and chocolate. It was delicious, and very reasonably priced.

Maybe it's because we are from Wisconsin and are used to good home made ice cream, both my husband and I thought it tasted more like ice milk. It's not thick enough for real ice cream. At $2.95 a scoop it should be the real thing.

A must stop when in the Daytona area. Home aid ice cream and shakes. Simply the best. We stop in each time we are in town. Always friendly service and great desserts. Cash only with an ATM on site. Call ahead to make sure they are open.
