Six generations of my family have enjoyed their ice cream, roasted peanuts, and the famous bubbles.The bubble is an ice cream treat topped with caramel or fudge sauce , sprinkled with nuts and smothered in marshmallow creme.The current parlor is a step back in time. The walls are covered with historic articles and photographs, and... More

Everyone should try the "bubble", I had never heard or had one before I moved down here, but the BUBBLE is the best! I always bring out of town friends and family in, so we can say they have been "bubbled""!!!! Also a lot of history pictures of Jackson in the store!!

As if the bubble wasn't good enough they now make a Buckeye bubble. Every time you step in the door you get the feeling your standing in a part of history. The people at Michaels are friendly and serve up fantastic ice cream to soothe that sweet tooth. Never disappointed.

This shoppe is set up like an old time general store with historic articles on the walls and candies galore. This makes for an inviting atmosphere but let's be real, people are flocking to this place for the world famous Bubble. The Bubble is an ice cream sundae that comes in many flavors with caramel or fudge sauce. It's also... More

I grew up with Michaels in the 50, 60 and 70s before leaving for the military and then a second career in Wash DC. Recently returned for a reunion and had a few minutes, so I popped in for a "Bubble" which is kinda like a sundae, but has Michael's own roasted peanuts on the top. It took me back... More

If you come to Jackson, you have to stop in to our LEGENDARY Ice Cream Shop! They have what they call a "bubble", which I didn't try till recently and asked my husband who is from this area why we hadn't come before! The ice cream is wonderful and they top it with a marshmallow sauce that flows over and... More

Bubbles are a staple in this town! They're a delicious mix of vanilla ice cream, marshmallow, chocolate syrup, and peanuts! Love the sweet and salty mix. Young people working are always so friendly. It's a must do in Jackson!

We were traveling through and stumbled upon Michael's. It was a big win. Not only was the ice cream great, but we were able to have dinner too. We fed 4 dinner and lunch for under $30. Great value for money. That said, ignore everything and just concentrate on the great ice cream.

The Bubble is a must for any visit, especially a first timer. Pick up a pack of roasted nuts to take home with you.
