Homemade ice cream here is the best because of the quality of the dairy products found in Ithaca. I love the green tea ice cream here, but the pumpkin has its own original spin. I have yet to find creamier, fresher ice cream anywhere else.

Three ice creams ordered, three happy customers. Any place that has banana and pumpkin is fine by us! These are our go-to test flavors, and Purity did not disappoint!
