Many delicious flavors and ways to have your favorite desert. I find a single generous scoop is sufficient and each time I visit try a new flavor. Love the decor - really gives the impression of an old time ice cream shop.

This was a great find in Old Town on a hot night. They had some great flavors, and I decided on the peanut butter, chocolate, pretzel. It was so delicious. Price wise it was average, and my children loved it.

Amazing unique flavor offerings made this the highlight of our trip to Old Town. Highly recommended by the locals, so you know it had to be good! My daughter said it was the best ice cream she ever had, and that is saying a lot!

They be all like we homemade but they just using carton mix and dumping stuff in it. I prefer my iced cream base homemade from scratch.

Pops is an old fashioned ice cream parlor with really good ice cream. The cones are stuffed pretty well with really good ice cream.
