Reviewed March 9, 2014

This is delicious ice cream! My favorite flavor was sea salt caramel. They let you taste. They have nut free, gluten free, dairy free flavors as well. We went to 3 different locations. Usually there is a line in summer but it goes pretty fast.

“Handmade Makes a Difference”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

This ice cream is amazing. They even offer pet friendly treats. When I first ate there, I was lucky enough to talk with the owner. She told us about how she hand makes all the flavors and how unique the flavors are. If you are looking for a new experience, with a little cucumber or fig or ginger, then this is the place to go. Make sure to take advantage of the free tastes!

“Disappointing”
Reviewed October 15, 2013 via mobile

Read in trip advisor that this place had fantastic ice cream especially the Caramel flavor. Had to have it and when I did, it was so uneventful that it was disappointing. I found a sea salt caramel gelato at another ice cream place and it was far more satisfying. There are loads of ice cream parlor a in Bar Harbor, I think they are all good. My expectations for this place was so high because of the ratings that it was a let down.
