Best praline ice cream ever! Open in the winter for those summertime cravings!! The only thing missing is an outside or inside seating area.

I been buying Handle's Homemade Ice Cream since I was in my teens. It with out is the best. I been to most of the US and never found any as good or better. If you do not believe me, as the San Francisco Forty-niners, they get it every time they are in this area.

Wow. So the toughest part is which flavor, or combination thereof to choose. Being a natural-born klutz I opted for a dish over a cone and chose the Chocoholic Chunk. The portion was quite generous and the ice cream itself was just outstanding. Wow! This is a place to be visited again, and again.

I love ice cream! Of all that I've had, none beats the homemade ice cream from Handel's. They have an excellent selection of flavors of ice cream and sherbet as well as many specialty items. The ice cream is made on location and is always fresh and contains real fruits and nuts, not just flavoring as found in many other... More

The love of Handel's is one thing both Trump and Hillary supporters can agree upon. Can this amazing ice cream bring peace in our time? Let's have that chocolate pecan cone and see what happens.

Moved to Minnesota over 20 years ago. Always stop here to get ice cream. It's the best I've ever eaten. Large variety of flavors, good price and friendly service

Everybody from Youngstown knows that Handel's Ice Cream is hands-down THE BEST. I haven't lived in Youngstown for almost 20 years, but this is always a highlight during visits back home.

You can't visit Youngstown without a trip to one of the many Handel's locations. The flavors are numerous, and some are seasonal. My favorite is fresh peach but you can only get it at the height of peach season. It sells out quickly. In the fall, the pumpkin is amazing. My daughter loves peppermint stick--available only at Christmas. Our other... More
