Passing a long row of holsteins in the barn, we stopped at Hall’s not far away and across the street.
They were serving from the outside window only and the barista implied that they had a smaller than usual variety of flavors available. Yet, we each found flavors that we loved. Wow! Who would think that after so much ice cream that we would even be able to appreciate more?
Gregg selected White Birch Beer. He tasted it, chucked, and immediately invited me to try it. It tasted like teaberry without the minty flavor. The first time I asked about teaberry, the barista described it as a combination of Birch Beer and mint. She was right! Gregg was surprised how good it was and he enjoyed it.
While researching for our trip, I had seen that Hall’s makes some flavors with honey and their cinnamon sounded delicious. I made a mental note to order that if available. And it was! I was not disappointed!
The textures in the two ice creams were a bit different, but not noticeably. I liked the hint of honey flavor as well as the nice cinnamon flavor. There were many cinnamon flecks in it, yet it never felt gritty. I was impressed and would definitely order that again.
Their website lists both ice creams, the one made with sugar and the one made with honey, contain 14% milkfat. Their honey ice cream has 9% premium PA honey. This is a good, premium ice cream.
