What more can I say that when my friends and I sat enjoying our ice creams on the outside porch of The Inside Scoop some tourist types approached and told us we looked like we belonged in a Norman Rockwell painting. Enjoy your ice cream out on the porch looking out on this lovely Vermont village and you might well... More

To get around buying ice cream at the grocery store, and going home and eating it all by myself, I go to the inside scoop. To get around feeling guilty about the lovely ice cream they serve I invite friends to meet me there, walk there with me, in short I try to make it an event. My " diet"... More

We each got ice cream from The Inside Scoop - one cherry ice cream and one black raspberry - both excellent; great fruit flavor. A really friendly place and right opposite the Green in Brandon. Highly recommended.

This is a nice friendly place. They look to have some good milkshakes and Sundays. I don't think Wilcox Original Ice Cream tastes that great.

Reopened under new management, and they've got the right idea. Wilcox's Original is Vermont ice cream pre-Ben & Jerry. No gimmicks or cutesy, just the real goods. Coconut Bliss is stupendous. They're remodeling the back of the store, so it's a work in progress, but the ice cream is worth the visit. Seating out front.

The old fashioned ice cream parlor and of course the ice cream is very tasty. The antiques and other items are always fascinating to explore.

Tons of hard ice cream flavors to choose from. Healthy portions and lots of antiques to browse. Also, penny candy. A great stop for kids.

The Inside Scoop is adjoined to an antique store, which makes for a unique visit. The ice cream parlor is of the old fashion variety, with a wide selection of flavors, and also a variety of back-in-the-day candies. We went to The Inside Scoop after hiking The Great Cliff and each thoroughly enjoyed our ice cream. It was also neat... More
