Besides a classic scoop of ice cream with a cup or cone, what are your other favorite Big Dipper treats? Is it a sundae? Root beer float? A shake? We wanna know!

Is there anything better than grabbing ice cream with your entire group of friends on a hot summer day?? We don’t think so.
On this day in 2013, Big Dipper and the Beaton family were on Good Morning America! Check out our stories for some more photos from that day.
When I dip, you dip, we dip! #ohboy! Have you tried our chocolate cone dip?It’s a good way to add a little something more to your scoop of ice cream. The best part, it’s great with EVERY flavor!
Not sure which flavor you want? Feeling adventurous and want to switch it up? Curious about that interesting special? Ask your scooper for a few samples so you can narrow down your decision! #ohboy!
