    Great ice cream! Not only do they have off the wall flavors they make it all in house! I love that you get a little scoop of another flavor because it is so hard to decide on just one!

    Butterfinger ice cream is like no other! Even when the line is super long they are still quick. The izzy scoop let's you try any flavor for free! The best ice cream in the twin cities, yum!!!

    Ice cream has fantastic texture. Got the Norwegian chai and Thai iced tea--amazing. Salted caramel is their most popular flavor--saltiness is well balanced with caramel, not just an afterthought.

    My favorite flavors are the coffee ones: Peace Coffee, Mocha Almond Crunch, Latte, and Tiramisu. Their Norwegian Chai and Peppermint Bon Bon are some of my other favorites.

    This place has 32 different extraordinary flavors of icecream from "peace coffee", "green apple" to "guava", "ginger" and many more for chocolate-lovers and fruit-lovers. Long line yet worth the wait!

    The soy peanut butter and the chocolate sorbet are a delightful vegan double scoop! For my itty Izzy scoop, I got the raspberry sorbet. It was a great combination!

    The people inside were really friendly and a ton of varieties of flavors. You get your scoop and an "Izzy" on top (small scoop), makes the idea of mixing flavors interesting.

    Seriously, the kiddie plus the izzy is plenty of ice cream. The ice cream is way more filling than you think it will be! Also they have gluten and dairy free options.

    Try the Norweigan Chai Ice Cream - Sooooo good!! On the bottom is almond mocha, funny combo but it's Ice cream you can't go wrong!

    For first-timers: An Izzy scoop is a tiny scoop of ice cream on top of their normal scoop. A great way to try flavor combos.

    Stick with a single unless you're sharing. The ice cream is extremely rich. A double was a bit too much for me personally. Plus ice cream is my favourite desert & I hadn't even eaten yet that day...

    If you're looking for the lactose-free options sorbet and soy are your options, but they don't offer all flavors daily. Don't be disappointed like I was, check ahead online for daily flavors.
