This is the best ice cream!! It comes from Wisconsin, and we first had it when our son was at the University of Wisconsin in Madison.

The absolute worst Groupon experience I've ever encountered! We were there on vacation with our kids and figured we'd give this place a try, big mistake. First, the empty and run-down place smells really musty, almost as if mold was coming out of the vents. Second, the owner was extremely disrespectful and instantly became aggressive towards my pregnant wife as soon as he heard the word "Groupon". I thought ice-cream parlors were suppose to be a place of joy? After we were basically chased away by the disgruntled owner, we realized the ice-cream was really old. There was absolutely nothing sweet about Sweet Pea's ice cream. We would have been better off going to Dairy Queen or ColdStone. Stay away at all costs! We w

From Our Editors

While patrons sit with their cone or banana split, Gene Kelly dances across TV screens and the stereo crackles with big band swing, but this isn't a scene plucked from a Norman Rockwell painting. Sweet Pea's Ice Cream does its best to re-create the feel of an old-fashioned ice cream parlor. Even the image of Sweet Pea herself is sure to remind visitors of dimple-cheeked Shirley Temple. She's actually the owners' daughter, but her persona talks up the shop's chilly treats, from ice cream churned at a family-owned dairy in Wisconsin to the menu's signature dessert, chocolate-covered frozen bananas. Familiar flavors such as chocolate are served alongside more exotic tastes such as Door County Cherry or Mint Avalanche. Even the hand-dipped bananas come in a variety, such as dark chocolate and peanut butter—a combo bound to send Elvis impersonators into a frenzy.
