Enjoyed this stop for ice cream. Several people have recommended it and I was finally driving through during business hours. The Whirlawhip machine is fun to see and the ice cream really good. I especially liked how well it blended the mix-ins. Only about a...More

Took my Mom & Grandson to check it out. We live about an hour away. I think they have the only remaining whirl-a-whip machines in use in the US. I posted several pictures. It was well worth the trip. It is an old-fashion soda-fountain located...More

I've heard of this place for years and finally made the trip. It really was worth the trip. The dessert was almost more than I could eat! So many options, will definitely go back!

The whirl-a-whips can be found at Dakota Drug on Main Street? What is a whirl-a-whip? It's a thick malt with a variety of flavors--you start of with ice cream, and then you can put different flavorful mixes into it--ranging from cake batter to even *bacon*!...More

This is a unique ice cream treat which is only available in a few places nationwide. Each treat is made fresh, with many flavor choices available. It is a delicious treat - worth driving out of your way for! Even if you think you have...More

Each Whirl-a-Whip is made to order. I'd suggest placing your order, doing your shopping and coming back to the counter to pick up your cone.
