Handel's Homemade Ice Cream and Yogurt recently was named the best ice cream shop in Indianapolis for the fifth year in a row on the TheIndyChannel.com A List. This might explain why Mallory Noble, a member of our Visitor Services team, isn't letting the change in temperature keep her from enjoying her favorite ice cream treats. The calendar says it's fall, but I'm still trying to get my fill of all the yummy cold treats our 8 Great Towns has to offer. One place that never gets old for me is Handel's. It is so easy for me to go there after a long day and meet up with friends to relax and enjoy myself. 

They have so many flavors to choose from along with monthly ones that they rotate. Along with ice cream, there's milkshakes, frozen yogurt and ice cream cakes. There's something for everyone, whether you enjoy fruity flavors or more decadent dessert ones. If you're looking for a something with a little "fall" flavor, their Caramel Apple and Pumpkin Ripple should be available soon. Or you can try a Hot Apple Dumpling now! I always attempt to try something new every time I go. One of my favorite flavors is their chocolate cake batter, which is delicious. Handel's is also known for their Hurricanes, which is their soft-serve vanilla ice cream with your choice of toppings like Butterfingers, M&Ms, Oreos and more. Although I haven't gotten around to trying one, my friends always get them and absolutely love them. If you haven't already visited their locations in Carmel and Fishers, you're definitely missing out. By the way, if you want to share your love for Handel's with friends and family in other areas, they can ship their goods anywhere across the United States.
