Reviewed October 20, 2012

You may have to wait a while in line but the ice cream is always worth the wait. The flavors are really out of the box....who ever craved olive oil ice cream? It's good! My favorite is the sea salt caramel.....amazing!

“Yummy but pricey”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

This is a awesome place to go if you like unusual flavors of ice cream. I tried one with blu cheese and I loved it.. even after I told everyone I wasn't too sure about it.

“Flavors You've Never Tasted !!”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

We experienced this ice cream shop last weekend. Wow what weird combinations !Off-the wall creativity. I had the Apple Pie Cheddar Cheese and Harvest Carmel Apple flavors on a waffle cone. Very yummy. A bit expensive, but worth a try.

“Fairly vanilla”
Reviewed October 1, 2012 via mobile

I sampled the lavender ice cream and it reminded me of soap or lotion so, I took a shot in the dark and ordered the basil and something-or-other flavor. It was 'okay'. Literally, it tasted like basil and ice. Not delicious and not terrible. It was hot out and the 'ice cream' was cold so, there you have it. Maybe they have better flavors but I'll probably never know. I'm sticking with UU Yogurt.
