While I am. more of your traditionalist chocolate milk shake type my spouse is more adventurous, and we both loved Purity. She was wowed by the flavors and really liked an ice cream sandwich of ginger snickerdoodle and blackberry ice cream. Delish!

Went Sunday night April 24 ordered at kiosk 2 ice cream cones. after an hour wait we were told they were out of the flavor we ordered. Then told they don't update the kiosk with their flavors. Worst ice cream experience I ever had.

The adulation that locals have for PIC is puzzling; if it were any more intense, it would qualify as a cult. I have lived in Ithaca over two decades and on a few occasions, I have tasted several of their ice cream flavors. Every one...was bland, tasteless, and elicited a 'so what' reaction. Garish lighting, dangerous parking area, hoards of mindless Ithacans marching glassy-eyed to Purity: no thank you.More

Good ice cream but not the absolute best I’ve ever had. But definitely worth a stop. Lots of selection so there is something for everyone. Not a long wait even though it was crowded.

We went to have a cup of ice cream. It was nice and creamy. The flavors were delicious. We had chocolate and vanilla ice cream because we had pie a la mode. The apple pie was delicious. Purity makes their own ice cream. It has...a little bit of everything. Ice cream, pies, bagels and a few other things. I would recommend this ice cream company hands down. Bill & Stacey W.More

My ice cream was too sweet. It was sold as chocolate raspberry truffle. There was no raspberry in it and chocolate chunks in the whole thing

If the movie "The Graduate" was set in Ithaca: Mr. Maguire: "There is a great future in Apple Crisp. Think about it. Will you think about it? " Benjamin: "Yes, I will." First time at Purity. Got the Apple Crisp ice cream sundae. Great. Great...vanilla ice cream, great crisp. Maybe tell them not too much Carmel drip. Skipped the cherry. Great service. Price was OK, parking was OK.More
