Definitely very good, but it's a good thing this is a vacation spot, otherwise you wouldn't be able to justify eating so much sugar at one time! Amazing idea and delivery!!

Our favorite dessert while staying on Chincoteague. First you pick your cookie, then ice cream and toppings. So many choices! The cookie comes out warm topped with ice cream & toppings. It was so big my daughter and I shared. Picture below doesn't do it justice - we had already ate a little. When in Chincoteague this is the place... More

We stopped at BYOC after riding around the island. EVERYONE enjoyed their delicious ice cream, I really enjoyed my milkshake. But the best part was how nice the owner was, who also came out while we were sitting on the bench and shared a laugh with us. I recommend this place.

This food truck is a genius idea!!! You basically get to create your own masterpiece with a warm cookie, ice cream, and toppings! You can be more plain or get really creative with their unique flavors! Definitely a place to check out and perfect treat for after the beach!

After falling in love with the Island Creamery, I must admit my sister and I found a new and better love!! Build Your Own Cookie is the BEST dessert on the island. It is our ONLY ice cream stop from now on!!

Beware the portion! Homemade cookie selection with ice cream and then a topping, whipped cream, and a cherry (for good measure!) The cookie is warmed, so everything gets melty-gooey-good. Owner is super nice. Great treat option. The regular portion is huge. You may wish to order the kid's size (about half) if you aren't too hungry or don't want to... More

We saw the Build Your Own Cookie coming back from the beach and had to try it after dinner. AWESOME!! The cookie itself is huge and delicious and coupled with ice cream and a topping.. out of this world.

Nothing short of spectacular! You have so many choices it is hard to pick! You pick your cookie type, ice cream, and toppings, then they bake the cookie to order. You get a heaping portion of warm gooey deliciousness. YUMMMMM!!!

Another Chincoteague Island food truck with amazing food! Very friendly service, a wide variety of cookies, ice cream flavors, and toppings. I had the brownie cookie with no toppings, and it was very fudgey.
