I had a Bassett's ice cream at Reading Terminal Market after lunch today and it is so good you will want to come back again and again. The ice cream by which all others should be judged.

I have read so many comments about this ice cream and was looking forward to trying them out but I was deeply disappointed at every level.

First of the guys working there are not customer oriented and should not be given a job in customer service. A janitor is much more friendly than these idiots. No respect to any of the customers and they are EXTREMELY RUDE. The customers pay to buy these ice creams and they forget that customers pay for their pay. If customers don't come, they will not be working there. I will never hire people in this shop to even clean my floors. Absolutely pieces of trash.

The ice creams are not to good either. I have tasted ice cream far far better at a side shops on the street that was better than this. In my opinion they should stop selling these ice creams as the best. THEY ARE NOT THE BEST. TRUST ME ON THIS. Poor example for ice cream.

Save your money and go to somewhere you are considered a valuable customer. Even DQ ice creams are better and the customer service is far better than this place. You will thank me for not going to Bassett Ice cream Shop.

They have lost their focus. I WILL NOT BE GOING THERE AGAIN.
