I know it's not the right season , but I have to mention my favorite place for ice cream . It's called the Udder Choice . It's on rt. 322 , just west of Ephreta . You can get a quart of home made ice cream for $4 there , or a pint for $2 . They have the usual suspects flavor wise , with a few wild cards thrown in for good measure . Last time I went they had pumpkin & grape nut flavors ! They also do simple lunch fare , soup & sandwiches . The building is really fun inside , lots of cow deco . The soups are usually very good .
