The ice cream in Betty Jane's was fantastic! I couldn't get enough of it. You got more than your moneys worth, make it a point to stop here when you are in Dubuque. I know when we return next year to visit this will be one of my main stops. Make sure to try the Fudge Truffle Ice cream.

Betty Jane Candies is a "historical" piece of Dubuque. Long time at the top of the midwest candy stores. Many types/varieties of chocolates with nuts/fruit etc as toppings. AND, the ice cream is to die for... The employees are very accommodating and very outgoing. Check it out, especially on a hot afternoon.

I stopped at Betty Jane's at the recommendation of my server at Catfish Charlie's, and I was not disappointed. Their candies are delicious, and the home made ice cream is out of bounds!! They have many flavors, and you can sample as many as you like. I decided on the Georgia Peach ice cream in a waffle cone (a good... More

I was referred here by a local when I asked about the best ice cream place in town. He was right! They make their own ice cream and candies, too. I had a scoop of the Gremlin (like turtle) ice cream and I agreed it was the BEST anywhere!

I love mint chocolate chip ice cream. In fact, that's all I ever get. Their mint chocolate chip was pink which I had never seen. The woman working there said it was because they make it homemade. Needless to say, I had to have some. It was amazing!!! They gave large portions for a small price. I highly recommend this... More

I can't lie - Betty Jane's caught our eye while looking at the Dubuque travel guide because that is the name of our beagle. Then we went on a trolley tour with our son's soon to be college and the tour guide mentioned Betty Jane's. That was it - we had to stop by. We are so glad we did!... More

I remember going there as a young girl, looking into all the cases to find my favorites, but it was so hard to pick one. Their chocolate tastes so much better than store bought waxy stuff. If I had an extra $100, I would spend it there! Solids, truffles, taffy, filled, Turtles!.. yum!

Wonderful chocolate, the Gremlins aka turtles are absolutely delicious. a little pricey and whoa to me we only bought a little box thinking we could order more. You can order but the shipping is so expensive it is easier to just drive from Missouri once in a while.

My daughter and I stopped here and we really thought the chocolate tasted SO good. They had a lot of Easter chocolate. We LOVED the mini dark chocolate rasperry filled bunnies. Prices were not bad for loose chocolate.

Betty Jane milk chocolate gremlins are THE gift that all our far-away friends want as a holiday treat. Although not inexpensive, they are definitely worth the splurge. My only complaint is that they seem to disappear from the box way too quickly! You definitely can't eat just one. At Easter, the chocolate eggs and baskets stuffed with gremlins are still... More
