Stumbled upon this gem while in Ft. Myers today. Awesome! So many flavors! The best part, for me, was that every flavor is clearly labeled as to nut and/or gluten content. Very nice as 2 of our 3 people in our group have food allergies....More

SO many choices, SUPER yummy ice cream and great staff. Love that they allow you to have multiple flavors, even if you're only getting 2 scoops!
