“Ice Cream You Scream...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012

My kids and I tried three different kinds of ice cream, and all were great. My peach melba was like nothing I've ever had before, and I've eaten LOTS of ice cream! My son had the chocolate cupcake, and also agreed that it was uniquely delicious (and he's also eaten his share of ice cream in his young life!). My daughter always get cookies & cream (except when she gets vanilla), and she said this particular cookies & cream was great! We'd been visiting Harper's Ferry, but decided to head to Charles Town for ice cream because the reviews were better. Definitely worth the short drive (~6 miles).

“YUM YUM YUM!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2012

It was DELICIOUS!!! I had the chocolate ice cream with brownie chunks in it and it was awesome. I got the kids size which was MORE than enough!! It was so creamy and rich, but not too rich. Haven't had ice cream that good in a long time.

“Best Ice Cream around.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2012

Skippers has the best hand dipped ice cream, it has replaced my old favorite Paks. Sorry Paks, your prices have gotten ridiculous! I'm giving a rating of very good, because I've only been twice and tried 2 flavors. Peach and Raspberry are highly recommended.

“Real HomeMade ICE CREAM!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2012

Local farm provides the best ice cream in town, lunch menu is a real pleaser, but a double diva waffle cone steals the hearts of all who visit.
Make this your treat stop in Charles Town.
