Oh wow! This place is AMAZING!! I had the peanut butter & pretzel concrete, which was so good and so creamy. Loved the big chucks of chocolate covered pretzel mixed in. I'll have to come here more often.

One of my grandchildren turned 7 years of age, and of course we went to Scooters. Scooters took care of the 9 of us quickly and easily with no errors. There was an excellent sellection, and all of us were satisfied.
