Bruster's Ice Cream
Restaurant details
Reviewed August 20, 2013

Brusters was one of our favorite treats- we would get ice cream here at least once a week. The past 3 times however, we have been really disappointed. Their flavor board is about 1/3 empty, ad their ice cream all tastes the same (it seems as though they aren't using much to flavor their ice cream). We also tried to use a coupon which we got from their store and the girl working wouldn't accept it. She sai that the owners told them not to accept coupons unless their location was on it (understandable, except for the fact that this specific coupon was gotten at their location). To sum it up, it seems to us that the owner of this location is cutting costs.

Bruster's is a chain of hard ice cream shops which also share locations with Nathan's hot dogs and we're lucky to have one right on the Palmyra/Hershey line on Rt. 322. They always have a variety of tasty ice cream flavors to choose from along with sorbet, Italian ice, and yogurt. There is one day a week where you can bring your own banana and save on a banana split. Real fresh-made waffle cones that are huge. If there is a special flavor you'd like give them a call and they'll make it fresh for you for a future date. My favorite is the coconut chip (full of coconut flavor with huge chunks of dark chocolate...yum!). The coconut sorbet was wonderful, too! You get a lot for the price and I can be fully happy with a kids' size cone! If you get a large waffle cone it's like 5 huge scoops! Decent toppings, sundae flavors, and kid sundaes. If your child is under a certain height they get theirs for free! They also custom-make ice cream cakes. There can be a line and my only complaint is that they never have enough workers and you can wait a while even when no line and no shady spots to sit and eat (they need more tables)! Don't forget to ask for a punch card to get a free cone after buying so many. Good ice cream and don't forget you can order a tasty Nathan's hot dog although I've never tried one here (can't make it past the ice cream!)
