Ice cream spot in Cherry Hill or Moorestown areas?

Hello all - looking for an independent (not Friendly's, etc.) ice cream shop in this area or nearby that serves exceptional ice cream and /or milkshakes. Any thoughts? Thanks!

  1. I like Daddy-O's at Meetinghouse Square in Marlton (Church Road at Greentree Road). Plenty of interesting flavors of homemade ice cream. Water ice, too.

    1. this might just be me, but I always thought that Chik-fil-A made some great milkshakes...

      But I think everyone should try out Sundae's in Berlin (on rt. 73-near the old berlin circle) at least once in their lives. I know its probably a bit further than you would want to drive, but I love their water ice! For me, it tops Rita's any day of the week! and their water ice/ ice cream is homemade as well.

      1. it may be a bit far but the paleteria tocumbo is very good and on the cheap side its on old capital trail in wilmington behind prices corner

        1. There is also Big Dipper on Main st. in Marlton- I used to go there a lot when I was younger and I remember loving their ice cream!

            Thanks all! I have choices!

            kmsue - that's funny about Chik-fil-A - last night on the train I overheard someone raving about their milkshakes. Who knew!

              *whew* I am glad to find out that I am not the only one who thinks that! I don't know what it is, but there is something about their Cookies and Cream milkshake that just hits the spot- it might be the whipped cream or the cherry on top--all I know is that it is so bad for you, it needs to be good! haha =)

                Nothing wrong with a Chik-fil-A milkshake!

          2. On High St. in Burlington is a place called Ummms Ice Cream Parlor. Perhaps a bit farther than 'nearby' your requested locations but IMHO worth the drive. Homemade ice cream, waffle cones, get the picture. Some unique flavors and I understand they've added real frozen custard. Just a couple of blocks from the river so you get some nice scenery, too.
