Brown Dog Ice Cream, a Trip Adviser Top 10 Ice Cream Shoppe, is still wowing with handmade exotic flavors as well as the old standbys, which are out of this world ! Charming and fun!

My family loved the ice cream there. While in Cape Charles we went twice to the Brown Dog. Needs more seating but cute place.

Dear JBJones20, Thank you for your question. Yes, our ice cream does contain corn syrup and in some instances corn starch as well. We do sell our slush puppies in key lime, strawberry and raspberry that are house made and... More
