“Famous Ice Cream”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

When I first got to this area, everyone raved about Handel's and told me how they were rated as one of the best in the country. So I have had Handel's about 10 times now and can say that it is really good and something that you have to try if you are in the area. Creative flavors, changed daily and they claim that all ice cream is made on site at each location every day. Reasonably priced and in addition to good ice cream, it's kind of a fun local thing to do. In the summer, everyone stands around and chats as they eat their cones, usually talking about the hot local topics.....cars, politics and high school football. A great experience to catch some of the local flavor.

“Sinfully good”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

This is, without a doubt, the best darn ice cream in the country. If you're visiting Youngstown/Boardman OH it is a MUST TRY. Hey, if it's cold outside have yours with hot fudge sauce.
