I love ice cream! Of all that I've had, none beats the homemade ice cream from Handel's. They have an excellent selection of flavors of ice cream and sherbet as well as many specialty items. The ice cream is made on location and is always fresh and contains real fruits and nuts, not just flavoring as found in many other... More

The love of Handel's is one thing both Trump and Hillary supporters can agree upon. Can this amazing ice cream bring peace in our time? Let's have that chocolate pecan cone and see what happens.

Moved to Minnesota over 20 years ago. Always stop here to get ice cream. It's the best I've ever eaten. Large variety of flavors, good price and friendly service

Everybody from Youngstown knows that Handel's Ice Cream is hands-down THE BEST. I haven't lived in Youngstown for almost 20 years, but this is always a highlight during visits back home.

You can't visit Youngstown without a trip to one of the many Handel's locations. The flavors are numerous, and some are seasonal. My favorite is fresh peach but you can only get it at the height of peach season. It sells out quickly. In the fall, the pumpkin is amazing. My daughter loves peppermint stick--available only at Christmas. Our other... More

We always look forward to returning to Ohio to go to Handel's for ice cream! We love to see the newest Flavors of the season! Tonight we both got a single cake cone of Salty Carmel truffle which would be a double or triple some other place! It had a rich Carmel flavor with chocolate truffles filled with salty Carmel...

Handles ice cream is my hands down favorite. I love their coconut cream pie, but I'm often tempted by their seasonal favorites. I dream about the day when I see that peach ice cream is back!

One of the best ice creams we have ever had. Very reasonable price, and so many flavors hard to chose, they all so good. My wife had something different than I did, it was just as good as mine
