Handel's Homemade Ice Cream and Yogurt

Handel's Homemade Ice Cream and Yogurt
373 S Mountain Ave

After some nice slices of NY style pizza at San Biagios, I stopped in at Handel's Homemade Ice Cream and Yogurt. Every Wednesday, Handel's has a $1 scoop deal. The lines can be very long but they move pretty fast.

Heavenly Hash, $1, chocolate ice cream. The young lady at the window, said heavenly hash was like rocky road but instead of almonds, they had chocolate covered peanuts. The first thing I noticed about this ice cream was the creaminess, very smooth. But there were no actual marshmellows, like rocky road, more like marshmellow swirled into the ice cream, but that was find. The chocolate covered peanuts were great, providing a nice saltiness to the sweetness of the ice cream. The scoops are a bit small, but hey for a $1, it's fine.

Service is good. The lines move pretty fast and the young ladies are very nice.

The regular prices of the scoops is $3. I think that is a fair price for the quality of the ice cream. But the scoops better be bigger than their $1 scoops.

I like Handel's better than Fosselmans.
