Best ice cream place. HomeMade flavors are excellent and change often so there's always something new. Italian ice is really creamy more like shave ice. Soft serve is more custard like and delicious on its own or with mix ins. Dogs and babies get free...More

We drove up just as the store was opening and got to watch the owners bring out a large cow to set outside the store. This is located a little off the main roads and there is parking nearby, but it doesn't have dedicated parking....More

Not going to lie, the ice cream is usually great. It’s almost always busy and full of families and people with friends. HOWEVER, I cannot believe how the owner treats her staff. Debbie talks to them like they are lesser and isn’t afraid to scold...More

Very charming dessert shop downtown Bloomsburg. 1 scoop of handmade ice cream for $2, you can't beat it! Italian ice for less than $2 a scoop...taste beats Ritas. Staff are super friendly and customer service oriented.

Not sure if this is the only place in Bloomsburg to get home made ice cream but to me it is over rated. The prices are high and small servings. The ice cream was just OK. Very unfriendly service. I would look else where when...More

Love the salted camel and bing cherry. Don't be alarmed if the line seems a little long, there are always about 4 people working the counter so the line goes quickly.

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
