The ice cream is good, but not the best I've ever had (that honor goes to Hershey's ice cream in Ormond Beach, FL...mmm!). But I enjoyed the single sugar cone w/ vanilla ice cream & rainbow sprinkles. Worth a stop if you're in the immediate area.

Kelly's Kone Konnection is located in Hamden, Ct. near Quinnipiac University and is part of the Glenwood Drive-In Restaurant. Kelly's serves fresh ice cream and frozen yogurt in many delicious flavors. They also serve piping hot homemade soups and fresh,crispy salads with homemade dressing. Open year-round but closes earlier in the cooler months. The portions are generous but the prices are reasonable. If you want fresh homemade ice cream this is the place!

Some times the ice cream tastes a bit like it has been in the freezer too long, and other times it is pretty good. I would not go out of my way to go there for ice cream, but if the kids have had lunch at Glenwood, we usually get ice cream too. It's good enough but just not great.
