Review of Kline's Dairy Bar

Kline's Dairy Bar
Ranked #1 of 8 Dessert in Harrisonburg
Price range: US$ 3 - US$ 6
Description: What makes Kline's ice cream so smooth and creamy with an unbelievably delicious taste? It's all in the production method and ingredients. We take the quality of our ice cream very seriously. High quality ingredients and an old fashion ice cream making technique has made Kline's an institution since 1943. Unlike the more popular and profitable soft serve and batch methods of producing ice cream, Kline's employs an almost obsolete process of continuous freeze production. Other methods can yield several times more ice cream because of the air being pumped in during the whipping process. The continuous freeze method used by Kline's, however, does not add extra air to the product. It is a very slow and labor intensive process. Each location makes their own fresh ice cream each morning for the day's sales.

Kline's is a classic ice cream place. The flavors rotate often. There are two locations and almost always someone in line. Kline's has a very loyal following and people who rush for the next flavor while other stick with vanilla or chocolate. A local tradition.

Kline's is a local favorite and has been for many years. When we moved to the area twenty years ago, everyone kept telling us about this fantastic homemade ice cream and that we needed to try it. They were right! A limited menu but great quality and a Harrisonburg must.

Though my last name is the same...no relation...had to try. Went on a cold and rainy day, but the hot fudge sundae was a great treat to lift our spirits. Will go back again, and next time, I would like to buy a T-shirt.

We vacation in the Harrisonburg area every few years and always come back here. It's some of the best ice cream I've ever had. Last time the flavor of the week was chocolate peanut butter. We bought a half gallon and continued to eat it throughout the week at our condo. It's not too chocolatey (I'm not a huge chocolate ice cream fan), just the right amount of peanut butter. YUM. You really can't go wrong here. It's also pretty inexpensive.
