Chocolate chip cookie dough. I won't eat anyone else's. When I go back home to Madison this is what I need to eat. It's perfect. The ice cream isn't boring vanilla but cookie dough flavored. Yum!! Do yourself a favor and give it a try!

The best ice cream in Madison. It is rich and creamy. Whenever I visit the University of Wisconsin - Madison, I try to stop by and get a scoop or two of ice cream to reminisce & enjoy.

This should be high on your list for a visit to Madison. Warning: it's so much fun, and there are so many flavors, you should leave time for a second visit, because one visit won't be nearly enough!
