Got a small cup of ice cream which i think was like 4 bucks but the thing was huge! It was a delicious 3 or 4 scoops of cookies n' cream. Very tasty but almost couldn't even eat the whole thing (but i did).

If you like the smell of chocolate, you will like this little ice cream shop. They have confections and home made ice cream. You can have it in a cone, cup or in a homemade waffle bowl. I had homemade chocolate peanut butter ice cream...More
