The Ice Cream

Every batch of ice cream is hand made at the Valley Drive location by the Gannon family. Over the years, they have created more than 200 unique flavors. Each one is made with a signature recipe that uses milk with 14 percent butter fat and very little air. This allows for an ice cream that is not too light, not too heavy, and extremely satisfying. Gannon’s uses only the finest ingredients for the recipes including Gertrude Hawk and specialty ice cream mix-ins and ingredients. 

Homemade Hard Ice Cream

Gannon’s first signature crazy flavor, Chocolate Raspberry Truffle, was made in 1984. After receiving a rave response, the family quickly followed suit with others like ‘Cuse Trax, Crème Brule, and Charlie Brown. A firm believer in buying local, many of the innovative flavors are made with strawberries, blueberries, and other produce from the Central New York area during seasons when the ingredients are freshest. Here are a few of the most popular unique flavors that Gannon’s serves up year after year.
