Very large servings of ice cream! They have both hard and soft serve. I had the hot fudge sundae with candied pecans...my small size was huge with hot fudge and nuts evenly throughout the sundae not just on top. Hubbies small waffle cone was equally as large with fresh waffle cone! One of his flavors was slightly freezer burned.

I always make sure to take a trip to 3B ice cream every time I am in Harrisburg. Every time that I come here it makes me remember the first time I cam when I was about 5 years old. I had ordered a small ice cream and when I got the cone there was so much Ice Cream that... More

The only thing I would caution about 3B is that the portions are huge! You definitely get your money's worth and it is better to err on the smaller side when ordering. The ice cream is good and there is a nice variety of flavors. Though they often have long lines in the summer time, they manage crowds well and... More

This is a must-do stop when I'm in town. I still get a kids cone because I can't finish a small cone myself. I can't even imagine what a large cone looks like and how does it actually stay on the cone.

Got a combination of graham and almond joy ice cream, and it was delicious. They don't sell soft serve, but their ice cream is excellent. The prices are also very cheap, and servings are large!

Ive had alot of ice cream in my time but 3bs banana splits are the best! For $5 you get 3 scoops of fun flavored ice cream and can load up on toppings! I usually have to share with someone because theyre too big to eat by myself. Skip cold stone and give 3b a try!

Love this place! They always have a wide variety of hard ice cream and fun flavors. The setting at the one between Dauphin and Halifax is beautiful...picnic tables, a little creek, woods, grass and on a Sunday afternoon you can sit and watch the motorcycles go up and down the mountain.
