One of my favorite places for ice cream in the summer! Each year I cannot wait for this place to open. There are so many to choose from, but anyting with the peanutbutter soft serve is an excellent choice! The fluff-a-nutter parfait is to die for.....

All the locals wait for Dairy joy to open every March. Even if they have to stand in line on the snow. The ice cream is delicious. The taste of summer!

Dairy Joy features several flavors of soft-serve (including coffee, black raspberry and peanut butter) along with Maine-made dipped ice cream, novelties,and all sorts of toppings and mix-ins. What's not to like?

Have been there many times and never been disappointed with the burgers, fries or other fast food offerings. It's nice to be able to eat a meal and then have ice cream for dessert. Can always find a cozy corner to chill with my loved one.
