Where Young's really shines is the homemade ice cream. Without a doubt this is about as fresh as ice cream will get, as they get the milk from the cows that are on the farm. The ice cream is not overly rich and is super-creamy, which is a bonus, as I am of the opinion that ice cream should be silky smooth and not overly frozen.

They have the typical flavors: chocolate chip, chocolate, vanilla, mint chocolate chip, etc. They also have flavors that are a little bit out of the ordinary. Some flavors they have occasionally: cinnamon, pumpkin, Wooly Wonka, and various other rotating exotic flavors. They also offer around eight choices of gelato for those who want something a little bit more healthful but, hey, when all this delicious ice cream is staring you in the face how can you say no? They offer a myriad of shake options as well as multiple sundaes that you can customize to your heart's desire.

The prices are more than fair as a double scoop will run you somewhere around $3.39 and the addition of a waffle cone, chocolate-dipped waffle cone, or waffle bowl will cost you about $1 in addition. This is on par with what other ice cream places charge, if not a little bit less expensive, and the amount they serve you is far more than others. Where they really shine is the flavor of the week, where you can get two scoops of a particular flavor for $2.39, so when you pair that up with a waffle cone that is a price that can't be beat.

The service is very friendly and extremely fast. I have stood in a line that was at the door and was out with my ice cream in less than ten minutes, and they can really pack a lot of people in the line. They are always more than willing to let you try out a flavor if you would like and they give you a good-sized test-it portion, as opposed to others where you can barely taste the ice cream.

Being in Ohio, I couldn't resist the Buckeye sundae. This is chocolate peanut butter ice cream, hot fudge, a buckeye candy, whipped cream and, instead of nuts and a cherry, you get Reese's Pieces.

As part of Young's 141st anniversary celebration, they offered a three scoop sundae, with three sauces for three bucks.  And you got to keep the glass!

What I like best about Young's excellent ice cream is that it is never too sweet or too soft.  Here is a scoop of black raspberry on top of a scoop of peaches & cream.

If we lived anywhere near Young's, we'd have our freezer stocked with this good ice cream.  As it is, we can enjoy it only in passing, by the cone, cup, sundae, soda, and milk shake.

Young's has been an essential milk-shake-stop since it opened in 1968.
