We passed the many other enticing ice cream and sweets shops to stop at Sherman's before leaving South Haven. The place was packed on a sunny Saturday afternoon. We grabbed a number, and had about 20 to wait before ours was called. It gave us some time to ponder over the plethora of ice cream choices (and yes, I know what a plethora is Amigos). I really wanted something fruity but also with chocolate. My first thought was a double scoop, maybe of blackberry and then of chocomania, until I saw the size of just a single scoop. Wow, they pack on the ice cream. Then I found the perfect flavor for the day-black raspberry supreme. It was delicious raspberry with swirls of rich, dark chocolate fudge. It was a meal in itself. I can see why people were lined up inside and out for their ice cream. I can see why they get the ratings they receive. Don't leave South Haven without it. They make their ice cream, and it's fantastic!

All I can say is if you like ice cream, and even if you don't, this is a must stop. May I recommend the baby size unless you are really hungry!!! My husband had bacon ice cream, yes I did say bacon. It was kind of good in a weird sort of way. Long lines can sometimes be the case, but worth it.

Wonderful choices, made onsite, many different kinds. My favorite, non-duplicatable elsewhere is Mackinac Island Fudge. Even their "baby" size is large.

I am never disappointed. I just love their ice cream. I have been going here since I was a kid. The portions are unbelievable so don't order on an empty stomach.

I would make the trip back to South Haven just to have some ice cream from Sherman's. If you're in the area, you have to stop at Sherman's.
