I just love Herrell's for the great tasting ice cream, cakes, fudge, topping selection and atmosphere of downtown Northampton.

“Best Ice Cream in United States (seriously)”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

I have lived in NYC and SF amongst other places. Herrell's is incredible. I buy it by the quart and have been doing this for nearly 30 years. People line up in the winter to get a sundae, too. It is hard to explain in a review so go on Herrell's web site for the precedent-setting history. An example of sublime is "Earl Grey" ice cream. It is mostly a light sweet cream with that special touch of bergamot.

There is no reason to get ice cream in a store around here.

“Holy grail of central Mass ice cream”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

We managed to avoid any lines by enjoying Harrell's mid-Monday on a 10 degree winter day. Service was friendly, and choices creative. We enjoyed the hot fudge, of course. There were a number of very creative flavors that I'm dyeing to go back and try. Even with my suburban Boston price point on alert, I thought the prices were a tad high given the portion sizes, though who can complain when the quality of the product is so high? Highly recommended.

Fun Fact: look for the picture of Steve Harrell and his wife with Ben and Jerry of Ben & Jerry's fame along the wall. An ice cream connoisseur classic!
