Reviewed July 27, 2011

Might just be the best ice cream I've ever had. Overly generous portion. Can't wait to go back!

My birthday gift to my brother was a promise to team up with him to take down the Emack Attack Sundae...and I may have enjoyed the present more than him!! The Attack is a $35 sundae that includes one scoop of all the ice cream flavor (approx. 25 scoops) and a couple spoonfuls of every topping offered. Needless to say it is A LOT of ice cream and it takes two or more very determined people to finish it, but you get a chance to taste every ice cream if you move quickly and don't let it melt down to much. I loved the majority of the flavors...especially the Oreo Cookie and the Heaven flavors. The only downfall was the Rum Raisin...it was an unpleasant surprise hidden at the bottom of the sundae...I don't recommend it.

Overall, the ice cream parlor offered a wide variety of treats and I would like to go back and enjoy a few more flavors on their own. They also offer numerous smoothies, coffee drinks, and chocolate treats...all of which sounded delicious.

If you are up for a challenge and make an effort to try all the flavor carefully, you will not be disappointed with the Emack Attack!
