“Best Ginger ice cream in the world!”
Reviewed October 26, 2008

The ginger ice cream (with pieces of stem ginger) has got to be the best in the world (and believe me, having traveled 5 continents I am in a position to judge).

Admittedly prices can seem a little steep, but do what our family does, order a pint (or quart) and several spoons!

Yum, yum, yum...

“Expensive, for a regular size serving”
Reviewed July 15, 2008

Last week, we got one cup of chocolate ice cream (not a pint, a CUP) and one cup of raspberry ice cream. For two servings, it was $9.50! They weren't even Chocolate Sundays, or anything "on" the ice cream. Quite expensive. Nice ice cream, but not worth the price. That's usually what happens though, businesses get greedy, and prices are raised. I have gone to Hallmark for many seasons and I, unfortunately, find that each year the prices get more and more unacceptable.
