Regardless of what you think of lists, it is great to see a small family owned business like Owowcow, in Ottsville, PA get some national recognition.

      I've had oWowCow ice cream several times - it really is that good.

        I would, too, if it weren't a 3 hour drive from where I live....

        Full disclosure.. they do have a second location in Wrightstown... but it is not going to save you a lot of time.

              We actually prefer the Wrightstown location because our 4 year old loves the carousel and the train in the little shopping center where it is located.

                      And the Dairy Barn at Cornell is better than both of them...

                      cw, understand your statement on lists. As you observe, what ever the methodology or validity of results it is great, indeed, to see "small family owned business get some national recognition."
