Fox Meadows Creamery
Promising review: "The best ice cream around! Although the line is often long, it's worth the wait! It is creamy and full of flavour. There are classic flavours that are always on and then there are other flavours that they'll keep on rotate." -- Evan Templin
Address: 2745 W. Main St., Ephrata
Mr. G’s Old Fashioned Ice Cream
Promising review: "A great little mom and pop ice cream shop right in the middle of historic Gettysburg. Besides the awesome flavors and menu options available at very reasonable prices... Sit inside and take a break from the heat, or out on the deck and get photobombed by their civil war soldier statues." -- Brenden Aston
Address: 404 Baltimore St., Gettysburg

Promising review: "This place is a great local gem. If you're looking for a quick bite to eat or some fantastic ice cream, definitely stop in.
