Not in the mood for lobster ice cream? Then try the wild maine blueberry ice cream in a waffle cone, it will fill you up, turn your tongue blue and bring you back to your childhood...

Ok, MSN said this was THE BEST ICE CREAM in Maine, so we had to go, of course. It's good, but the best?? Not sure of that. It probably is the only place you can get LOBSTER ice cream, though. A taste is enough...chunks of lobster frozen in ice cream...not so great...

My wife is a chocoholic, and I am an enabler. When we passed Ben and Bill's, I suggested we stop in a "browse." We left with a variety of pricey and tasty chocolates.

We stopped in for ice cream but fell for the huge assortment of chocolates. My husband loved the dark chocolate vanilla creams and I loved the salted dark carmel and peanut butter cups. Such a nice staff!

I'm not sure that I'm brave enough to try lobster ice cream but the chocolate mocha that I had was excellent. I highly recommend this ice cream place.

Yes they actually have lobster ice cream. My sister-in-law had it and said it was buttery. I had blueberry and it was delicious. A great treat while out shopping on Main Street.

This was suggested to us as the place to go locally for ice cream. We went twice while here. Though the ice cream was good, we found it not as flavorful as what we find at home.

Lots of delicious flavors to choose from. Prices are typical ($4.50 small/$5 50 large) but the servings are more than plentiful. Yum!
