“Classic, unpretentious ice cream”
Review of Dairy Frost

Dairy Frost
Ranked #5 of 7 Dessert in Brunswick
Restaurant details
Reviewed August 6, 2012

On a warm summer night, there are few better treats than to stop for some soft-serve ice cream. This place has been making locals and vacationers happy since the 1970s and the place looks like it would still feel at home with polyester leisure suits and CB radios. I don't recall seeing any outdoor seating, but enjoying a cold dish of soft serve ice cream with rainbow sprinkles under the nighttime air is a memory that someone of any age would cherish.

It really doesn't get any better than the Dairy Frost.  It's very popular so I don't know why are there not more reviews.

My favorite is the soft serve - no artificial swirls for flavor, just delicious vanilla & chocolate, of course, but also coffee and peanut butter!  You HAVE to try the soft serve peanut butter!  If you're really in the mood for a peanut frenzy, you can get the best peanut butter sauce on top of it (or on any other flavor) and be in peanut heaven.  Most of the time there is raspberry soft serve which is nice and, lately, I saw lemon which is refreshing.  Another treat is to have your cone dipped in chocolate...ooooohhhh...or one of 2 kinds of sprinkles (jimmies), or crunch coat.

Another great item is the shakes - small, large and extra thick are the choices along with too many flavors to mention.  I've even asked for a "custom" shake - a fluffernutter (peanut butter and marshmallow) as I had one somewhere in MA that was fantastic - and that was no problem.  Dairy Frost also creates it's own version of the Dairy Queen blizzard by swirling in different toppings, cookies or candy pieces.

Hard ice cream is Giffords, a Maine company, with a large selection of flavors and toppings.  

Unfortunately for us locals, it is seasonal, open from late April to early September, but  it's understandable.  Otherwise we'd be outside, eating ice cream treats in the cold and snow!

The great news besides wonderful ice cream and the friendly owner and her staff is the prices.  Shhhhh....don't tell them.  Where else could you get a (generous) small soft serve cone for under $2 and a milkshake for about $2.50?  You can really afford to take the whole family to the Dairy Frost!  So what are you waiting for?
