This place is small, but its always a stop when we have time and are in Bloomington. Great shakes, ice cream and what Dairy Queen would call a Blizzard. Do not try any other place in town as this is the best quality, largest quantity...More

We love homemade ice cream but who doesn't? Black cherry was amazing full of cherry pieces. My husband has the cherry cordial. He didn't car for it but it was a taste preference due to disliking chocolate pieces in his ice cream. Less cherry pieces...More

You can't go wrong heading to Jiffy Treat. They make their own ice cream and have plenty of interesting seasonal specialties like persimmon in the Fall. I'm puzzled by another review that that said they got bad ice cream, I have been going 30 years...More

I see people standing in line and I know this is a local favorite. So we went (again). Asked for two scoops of ice cream. The bottom scoop (the biggest) was so "freezer burned" tasted like bad ice. I took it home and threw it...More

I was afraid to sit down it was so dirty. I don't see what the hype is about. It's ice cream...and it's just OK ice cream. Sad little store.
