Fielder’s Choice Ice Cream…Rich, Creamy, Delicious, Homemade and LOCAL!
Mike and Sue Jillson are terrific people and they run a great business. Actually, two great businesses. The original Fielder's Choice Ice Cream is on Route 126 in Sabattus and the newer one is on Route 202 in Manchester. Both pride themselves in fresh, homemade ice cream at very fair prices!
The Jillsons make over 30 kinds of hard serve ice cream. There is something for every taste and, according to one customer I talked too, the ice cream is better and the prices are lower than a well known national chain. She says she can get ice cream for her and her three kids for under ten bucks. I'd say that's a pretty inexpensive treat!
The deliciousness of the hard serve flavors (30+ in all) is ridiculous. I loved everything I sampled but finally settled on the cake batter (which I affectionately call, "cake batter-batter-batter").
If you're in Sabattus or Manchester and pass up a chance to try this ice cream (the Black Bear Biscuit is the fattest ice cream sandwich you'll probably ever see), then what the heck's wrong with you, anyway?
Flavors include: French Vanilla, Vanilla Bean, Cookie Dough, Coffee Heath, Black Raspberry, Butter Finger, Butter Pecan, Cake Batter, Cotton Candy, Maple Walnut, Maple, Grapenut, Mint Chocolate Chip, Almond Joy, Chocolate Almond, Pumpkin (Renee's favorite), Orange Pineapple, Blueberry, Pistachio and more!
Sundaes include: The Closer (Fresh baked brownie, hot fudge and whipped cream), The Papi (Hot fudge, Spanish peanuts), The Slider (Bananas, pineapple, strawberries, hot fudge, whipped cream, nuts), to name a few.
Try it, you'll like it! (name the commercial where you've heard THAT before)
