“Nice Old Fashioned Ice Cream place!”
Review of Claude's Creamery

Claude's Creamery
Ranked #1 of 1 Dessert in Palmerton
Restaurant details
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Good quality ice cream, convenient hours, and good service. They put a lot of money into here to bring back a 50ish style ice cream parlor. They do not made their own ice cream but buy it from JAB in Emmaus whose quality is pretty good. If they made their own they would get a five from me.

Palmerton in just a small town in carbon county, so there's really nothing to do there. Except, go to Claude's. this is the best ice cream parlor around. Their milkshakes are nice and creamy, the ice cream is delicious, and the flavors are excellent. They offer traditional flavors (strawberry chocolate vanilla twist) but also some unusual ones like (play dough red velvet cupcake Cheesecake etc.). This parlor is a mixture of Cold Stone Creamery and Ice Cream Lab. And another good thing is it won't hurt your wallet! The staff is amazing such young kids being so courteous and helpful this is the best place to get some (unhealthy) food in the area.

Love the flavor selections. Friendly staff. A little expensive but quality is great. Already had to wait outside just to get inside to order one ice cream. Went here atleast once a week as a treat during the summer.

I have been to Claudes three times (fall 2011 and twice summer 2012) The fall 2011 visit
was actually very good The ice cream was fresh and unique ,the cones crispy, and the service
friendly and effective. The summer 2012 visits were beyond disappointing. While the service
continued to be good,the products were of such poor quality that my wife and I ended up throwing
the cones in the trash,both visits. The ice cream was old, freezer burned, and flavorless. It left a coating an unpleasant coating in your mouth that needed to be washed out with water. The serving sizes are huge ,,but it appears that they trying to overcompensate. The waffle cones were so soggy and stale that I asked for a new cone on the second visit (sugar cone) but never actually got to the cone because the ice cream was not edible. I felt verry sorry for the teenage server as she tried to make excuses AVOID AT ALL COST
