    The coffee is really good as the ice cream. Also you should try the cheeses and dips, you will add at your grocery list.

    HUGE servings but AMAZING taste at reasonable prices. They even offer dry ice if you want to take some of the deliciousness home with you! Traveled 7 hours and the ice cream was still hard as rock.

    Grab a half gallon of your favorite flavor before making a trip home; the staff can pack it to keep it from melting AND your parents will be so happy with you!

    Milkshakes here are an underwhelming value. Try Meyer Dairy for a bigger, better shake that costs less.
