We drive about 40 minutes away but still drive 2 or 3 times a year to visit the Dairy Bar. Really nice ice cream. My favorite is Toasted Almond while my wife loves the Maple Walnut. Toasted Almond is super nutty (not whole nuts, but easy to chew crushed nuts) and has no alcohol taste at all (most of the time Toasted Almond ice cream has a strong alcohol taste - - but not here). As a special treat, I can really recommend the milk shakes - - especially vanilla. We always buy some half gallons containers to take home and eggs during our visit. Everything fresh from the UCONN farm!!!
My only concern is the fact that they do not have a large supply of half gallon container on stock. They will fill up a container for you with the flavor that you want - - but it costs you an extra $2.00 over the regular price. Not a large fee - - but kind of unethical if you ask me. But I guess you can do that when you win a few basketball games.
Still it make brings a smile to my face when we decide to visit my alma mater. Enjoy and don’t forget to take some home.
TIP: During the summer they stay open longer - - Remember, it’s a Summertime Treat!!!
