We stopped here while dining in the area at the Dobbin House and we enjoyed our visit. They have some good candies here and we left with some small bags. If you're in this end of town stop in at this place for some treats!

When you want a little something sweet. There is nothing like homemade ice cream. More flavors than I can count, so hard to choose which one. Their sea salt caramels and chocolates are to die for. Buy just one or buy a box.

The ice creams are very good and they have a good selection. Only a couple of benches inside that fit 4 people. They have fudge but no vanilla flavor, sorry not a good seller. I recommend it for a quick stop for ice cream or fudge.

I got a sample of three different fudges at first. I ordered the New Orleans Praline ice cream. I have been to other locations so I know it's great.

Not cheap but good tasting genuine ice cream. Many other types of sweets to select from if you don't like ice cream. May need to plug the parking meters so prevalent around the town of Gettysburg itself so be forewarned. And just a couple places to sit inside and one bench or so out.

We got some ice cream and some fudge and it was delicious. Basically every shop on that road is run by the local college kids and you kind of just have to deal with that. They weren't rude or bad or anything just typical college students. We've been to this one before and this time around the fudge was the... More

What's not to like on a warm September evening about a yummy ice cream cone. The only problem was deciding which interesting flavor to try.

I stopped in here on my way out of town for some ice cream and left with a bag full of chocolate. lol. Everything looked amazing. I ended up trying the ice cream and some chocolates as well as picking up some gourmet fudge for my family. Everything was delicious and the staff was friendly and helpful!
