We love The Big Chill, the people are always friendly and they remember us. We only get in a few times a year but they are always happy to see us and their selection of ice cream and the quality is unsurpassed. It's a great place to visit anytime, but especially on a hot summer day. Watch for the big... More

Overall a very strange experience. Went in around 8:30-9pm and wanted to order "The Big Chill" challenge and was told we couldn't because there wasn't enough staff (there were 4 people behind the counter). We were told that they couldn't sell "The Big Chill" unless it was part of the challenge, so that was that. I don't know understand what... More

Great find! I don't remember what all flavors we tried but there were lots to choose from. Don't miss it if you are in the area.

I recently went to Brennan's Ice Cream Parlor on Iron Street in Bloomsburg. There were four girls behind the counter. None of them were wearing hair nets. None of them were wearing plastic gloves when scooping ice cream, and I saw their hands actually touched the ice cream, even after they touched their hair. They also touched cash with the... More

Been here many times, and it's always difficult choosing what flavor of ice cream to get! There are so many!! And they're all wonderful!

Whenever we are in Bloomsburg, we stop at this place for ice cream and /or frozen yogurt. One of the few places in the area to make a homemade sugar free and fat free frozen yogurt, and it's delicious. Creamy and tasty. The ice cream has the consistency of whipped cream. Almost indescribable. It's that good. Everything made on premises... More

If you need a sweet treat while in Bloomsburg, head over to Brennan's big chill. If Rosie the cow is out, they are open. All the products are fresh and home made. Helpful perky staff and good seating. Many flavor to choose from. Go and enjoy

We used to go to Brennan's at least once a week. Their ice cream is good and they have a nice selection of flavors. We have not been there since last summer when we took our son and his family with small children. We asked for a smaller size for a 3 year old. One of the owners (we knew... More

This is an ice cream parlor. The ice cream is made on site, and it is delicious. They have many different flavors. Some of the flavors are unusual combinations of ingredients. The flavors change regularly. I have been there when they had beer flavored ice cream and whiskey flavored ice cream. The restaurant is closed from Thanksgiving to Groundhog Day.... More

Description
Have you seen the cow?
If the answer is yes, you've probably enjoyed what we call "Handmade Excitement". Established in 2004, the concept was to provide our customers with a new handmade ice cream experience with every visit. Our atmosphere brings back or establishes new memories for everyone that walks through the door. You will find an enthusiastic staff of well-trained employees. All of our ice cream is made on the premises using only the finest ingredients with most of the flavors being all natural. We offer over 200 flavors of ice cream from our own recipes, some of which you will find nowhere else. There are 42 flavors displayed which are rotated on a daily basis. We specialize in making Banana Splits, Sundaes, milkshakes, frozen coffee and fruit drinks.Anyone can sell ice cream and desserts but at Brennan's Big Chill we sell "Handmade Excitement"
Open from Groundhogs Day (Feb.2) To just before Thanksgiving
