Great ice cream. Great service. Never go to Great Barrington without stopping there. Some unique flavors for the adventurous.

We came up with the idea to have our favorite local ice cream spot cater our dessert for our mini-wedding this September. Not knowing if this would be possible, SoCo was a "yes!" the whole time. They came up with creative ways to store, package,...and serve the ice cream. They really showed that anything is possible and we were so happy to serve their incredible product. They made our experience so easy and our wedding a dream!More

Ice cream junkies! Go! Friendly service, large portions, and an assortment of usual and offbeat flavors.

Delicious, fresh made, summer flavors or all time favorites. Worth a stop after dinner or after a hike.

Glad we decided to take a quick drive to Great Barrington downtown for dessert! I had the mango sorbet and it was so flavorful! My husband tried the fig ice cream which was very good! Definitely puts a lot of effort into their ice cream!!...And serious about following covid safety rules! We will be back!More

Excellent ice creams. We got Dirty Chocolate and Lavender Blueberry (my favorite). The chocolate was rich and had several different kinds of chocolate (somehow you can taste ALL of them). The lavender blueberry was a great combination of creamy and then the tart-sweet blueberry swirl....Verrrrrry nice. A pity they can't deliver out of state. Next time I go I want the ginger ice cream, or maybe espresso cookie, or...More

During a recent trip to Great Barrington, my husband and I had the great good fortune to come across SoCo Creamery in Great Barrington. With no exaggeration, we can unequivocally say that is probably the best ice cream we’ve had in quite a long time!...The shop has gone above and beyond in order to serve customers during this time of COVID. There are boxes of tape on the floor that you move through as you enter the shop and work your way up toward the counter to place your order. The staff was very friendly. On our first visit, my husband got a large dish of Banana Brownie ice cream while I went with Peanut Butter Mudslide. Our consensus opinion was that the ice cream was some of the creamiest, richest ice cream either of us has had. In both our cases, the flavors delivered on their names and they were both devoured quickly. Since we enjoyed our first trip, on another night we opted to get Mint Chip shakes. Again, the shakes were absolutely delicious - rich and creamy. The Mint Chip ice cream has so many chocolate chips they were coating the bottom of the cup after we finished the shakes you needed a spoon to finish up the chocolate chips…and trust us…you don’t want to waste all the delicious chocolate!More

As the kids would say, "OMG!" We cannot get enough of this ice cream. Receive their newsletter and you will see the reverence shown every flavor, every ingredient and combination they create. Here, ice cream is treated as you would in creating fine wine and...believe me, it shows. Yes, we have even gone here twice in the same day!! Only wished we lived in MA instead of NJ to be closer!!More
