For those with a gluten sensitivity:
Many of our flavors are gluten free. For the gluten free flavors, you will see a small GF written in the top corner of our flavor signs. If you are concerned about cross contamination, please ask your server to use a new scoop for your order.
We also offer gluten free sugar and wafer cones, and gluten free vanilla/chocolate crème cookies as a topping.

Are you hiring?
- We are very fortunate that our employees tend to stay with us for 3 or 4 seasons (or more), before moving on. That said, each spring the majority of our staff returns, but with other commitments, internships, other jobs, etc. , we usually lose a few of our employees. So, it’s likely that we will have a few openings. We are always on the lookout for great additions to our team.
- We look for staff members that are extremely polite, outgoing, friendly, and can easily work as part of a team. All our employees must have exceptional manners. We also need to hire people that are able to work through our closing in the fall. Lots of our employees head off to college in late August, and the new employees must fill in the gaps when they leave. Our new employees must be available from hiring through the end of our season on October 30th.
- Applicants must be at least 16 years old, due to CT State Law.
