My family loves ice cream!  We each have our favorite places to go for this cold treat.  On Saturday, our son Kellen asked if we could go downtown to Koo Koo’s and Mom and Dad quickly jumped on board.  Koo Koo Ice Cream Depot, located on Benson, just next door to Anderson’s courthouse, is fun, colorful, and delicious.  I didn’t know until Saturdays trip that they serve Hershey’s Ice Cream.  I didn’t even know that Hershey made ice cream!

I chose a scoop of berry ice cream, Kellen decided to have a cone, and James went all out and had a banana split that is being made in the photo above.   It really looked good!  When you have your ice cream “in” at Koo Koo’s, they serve you in pretty glass ice cream dishes.  I think that’s a nice touch! 

They have lots to look at while you visit with them, and an entertainment area with toys for young children.  They also have lots of colorful candy treats lining their shelves that tempt you as you enjoy your ice cream.  We even spotted some chocolates featuring the BSA (Boy Scouts of America) logos on them!

As you can see from the photo of their sign, Koo’s Koo’s was once the location of Dickson’s Ice Cream Co., which dates back to the 1950’s.     afs
