It was cold outside, but their frozen custard is so good, I had to stop and get some. It is really excellent and not to be missed, whether it is in a cup or on one of their many different cones, it is very tasty. I always look forward to stopping by when I am in Carlisle, PA.

Good old frozen custard in an old school style ice cream place. What's not to love? I'll be back when in the area next!

Finally got to go to Massey's after my 3rd visit to Dickinson. I've totally missed out on the last 2 visits. My favorite is the butter crunch hand dipped frozen custard. Love the swiss almond too. The swirl soft serve dipped in chocolate was also good but I personally preferred the hand dipped.

This is a little gem in Carlisle. Both their ice cream and custard were great, although I preferred the ice cream. I got a scoop of caramel cheesecake ice cream and it was super creamy and not too sweet. The chocolate custard with cookie dough was great too but I would have enjoyed it more if the serving portion wasn't... More

I thought the ice cream was good but pricey for the portions that they give you. Girlfriend loved it

They have the greatest soft serve vanilla custard in the planet! I was also lucky enough to have the fresh native peaches offered to make a stellar peach sundae to die for.

Massey's has been in business since I can remember and I am 60 years old. While they only serve ice cream products, it is a hit for the locals. Love their shakes, sundae's, floats and banana splits. Great prices and located in a nice part of town, near Dickinson College.

Went to Massey's for an ice cream on a hot day when we were visiting Carlisle during the Chrysler show! It was terrific! Hand dipped flavors change daily and included fun flavors in addition to the regulars (vanilla and chocolate). I tried the maple bacon and it was great! They also had gluten free cones - a real treat for... More

Great place to go if you have a hankering for a very good milkshake. The ice cream is right up there too. Can't go wrong by stopping at Massey's for a treat.
