How much fresher can you get with the ice cream factory a cross the street, check out their take outs, good deals, what a selection, so many ways they serve but I enjoyed the pretzel cone made my night

They have the best Dutch Chocolate Ice Cream!! And of course many other flavors that are to many to name. You will not be disappointed no matter what flavor you are craving for.

We passed by this place today on the way home, and saw a sign out front advertising "Graham Slam," the flavor of the week. Well, that did it...we had to stop in. Walking into Nelson's, you tend to go back in time to the 1950s....More

Not a run-of-the-mill ice cream shop. It may not look like much from the outside OR from the outside. But their ice cream is smooth and very flavorful.

The flavors are non traditional and I can always find something I like there. The service is good, but sometimes I cannot justify buying this luxurious treat!

Nelson's Ice Cream Store is currently open under the management of the Nelson Family. Patrick and Amanda Nelson are doing the daily operations of the store. We have updated the interior of the building and have been busy since Memorial day! Currently you can choose your favorite cone and then pick from over 30 flavors of 16% butter fat ice cream made at our factory across the street. We also make Banana splits, a variety of sundae's with baked goods made on the property by Amanda Nelson. If you want to take home your favorite flavor you can purchase many of the flavors in half gallons, pints, and novelties. The Nelson's have also installed an old fashioned original soda fountain and will make your favorite soda with one or more of the many flavors they offer on the flavor board. We are so proud and thank our faithful customers who voted for us in the 2013 PHL17 Hot Lists contest winning us 2nd place out of over 40 other shops ! Credit cards accepted
