Ice Cream lovers owe it to themselves to try the best Ice Cream in..the world? Personal favorites are the older recipes; Strawberry, with whole strawberries in each bite, Maple Walnut, with real Maple syrup flavor and large Walnuts, Black Raspberry. The newer flavors like Husky Tracks are popular, but the older recipes have the textures that make this ice cream famous. This dairy bar is a fun place to visit with an in house dairy room (no longer in use) has a great collection of old milk bottles. Close to Horse Barn Hill, and the stable of Morgan Horses. After eating ice cream, why not visit the barns and then stop off at the Ballard Puppet Museum or any of the fun UCONN points of interest.
