On 18-day road trip with family and we had plenty of desserts. We like ice cream at home too. This is the best I've ever had. Great range of selections and some unique options too. Was really hard to make a choice but tried some samples and some of all my kids. Each one was incredible. Just go there!

Overall very good ice cream with some unique flavors. We visited two of three locations while staying in Bar Harbor. One had pictures of Barack Obama visiting!

Our favorite combination was Thai Chili Coconut and Ginger ice cream! An amazing explosion of flavors in our mouths with great mouth-feel! Repeated this twice til they ran out!

Unique flavors available! We loved the lemon poppyseed and the nutella flavors. Enjoyed it very much but pricey.

There were quite a few selections of ice cream. We went there twice, and both times we were not impressed with the selections. The flavors we chose were not very flavorful.
