Donna, you are so right. Love Brusters and certainly miss JohnZ and Patty.... Where are you guys??? I'm thinking we should have more parties at Brusters for TOTV get togethers!! Last time I went to say hi to Patty, she was elbow deep in making a fresh batch of ice cream. You can't get much better than that!!

Arrow Agree!

I completely agree with Donna and Kathie on this one. Bruster's is the best ice cream I've ever had. This is real ice cream. Hey JohnZ and Patty where are you two??? Busy concocting new flavors? Yummmmmm! I'll be there to try them.
Laughter and Light, Chelsea

Back in the Milwaukee area there are custard stands all over town. Leon's Frozen Custard will have lines OUTSIDE even in the winter.

For those of us from that area, custard is probably our favorite therefore


ps; they also have sugar free but com'on. .. ..
that's like diet Coke with your Capt Morgan

Default Ollie's Frozen Custard

Ollie's has been in The Villages for over 8 years and has the BEST ICE CREAM in the Villages. Their Frozen Custard is made fresh thru-out the day. My favorite has to be their Black Raspberry on Saturday and the Butter Pecan on Sunday. They always offer FREE samples-so try it before you buy it. One taste and I was hooked!!

Is Kilwins still in SS? I thought that place was excellent.

I also liked Brusters - The brownie sundae was so big we had to share it!

Default D'Lites

D'Lites is great for dieters but also for us lactose intolerant people. What a great place owned by a great family. We love it. So wonderful to hop on our golf cart and go get an ice cream at D'lites....how romantic its our Friday night date.

Angry Carvel

We went to Carvel on Sunday evening to get an ice cream, only to find a notice on the door that they went out of business at 6 pm that evening.
There was a couple waiting outside the door, who stated they were regular customers and had the young girl inside call the owners, so they could have one last cone from Carvel. The owners did arrive and told us that they could no longer afford the $4,000 monthly rent, another $4,000 for other expenses, and fees they had to pay to corporate for the ice cream. They just could not sell enough ice cream to stay in business.
What a disappointment!!!!! First Dairy Queen, and now Carvel, which became our favorite ice cream spot. I guess there Buy one , get one free Sundaes and cones did them in.

Default Dairy Queen

A friend asked where DQ locations were nearby. After checking their main web site, 4 locations are mentioned, but all are closed.

I emailed a note asking them to correct their web site and also what's the possibility of re-opening a location in the area. The note back from them asked if I wanted to purchase a franchise...so, sorry folks, no Dairy Queen opening around here anytime soon.

Default Best Ice Cream

Cannot believe Blue Bell is not one of the choices. It is, by far, the very best ice cream made in the USA. Try the Homemade Vanilla that you can get at Publix. Compare it side by side with any other brand. You simply cannot beat natural fresh ingredients. Check out their website.

When & where is Friendly's coming to The Villages? They were rumored to be coming to the former Bono's BBQ on CR 466 but that deal fell through and IHOP moved into that site. Always enjoyed Friendly's ice cream and for now, am happy with Publix Premium Ice Cream.
