We saw a photo of the POTUS in front of this store and set out on a mission to find it while staying in SW Harbor. Well, it was worth the drive to Bar Harbor. This ice cream store ROCKS! The blackstrap banana and cookies and cream were A+ highly recommend!!!!

I come from an ice cream town - some of the best in the country and we know our ice cream! This was definitely a match for the best. Rich creamy textures and very interesting flavor options. Only disappointment is they weren't serving Mexican Chocolate and I'd heard so many good things about it, I really wanted to try it. My husband and I decided on a hot fudge sundae and were delighted that we could get two flavors (small portions) to count as one scoop and had our choice of nuts - pecans, walnuts or almonds, Never seen that before!

Please God let me forget the taste of the " Mexican chocolate" ice cream before I get pregnant again. I don't think my marriage is strong enough to force my husband to drive 7 hours for a craving.

Delicious unique flavors like ginger, and cinammon pepper, blueberry basil. But the basics we had like Candy shop, butter pecan and good ol chocolate were delicious too.
