The Bottom Line:

Kountry Kreamery is a down-home local spot that serves up Hershey's Ice Cream with a smile. The staff is not only courteous to customers, but they also make it their mission to show each guest a little more attention than they might have expected. It's a great place to stop for a pretzel cone, a milkshake, or a banana split you won't forget.

From special celebrations to regular after-dinner treats, quality ice cream has the power to turn an ordinary moment into one you’ll remember. If you just so happened to spend all afternoon hiking up a mountain, there’s no better time to treat everyone who braved the hills. Kountry Kreamery is the perfect place to cool off.

Proudly serving Hershey’s Ice Cream, Kountry Kreamery is a brand that has managed to hold its audience’s attention since 1894. The owner of this beloved Pigeon Forge location does more than just scoop out the orders though. One of the biggest reasons customers return again and again is because of how they feel when they walk in the door.

Every member of the family is treated with a little extra consideration, regardless of their age. This belief in doing a little extra may have gotten its start with the founder of Kountry Kreamery, but it can be seen with every member of the staff. There’s also a sense of community to be found inside the traditional brick building, so it should come as no surprise that Kountry Kreamery is involved in all kinds of local events around the town.

Milkshakes, banana splits, pretzel cones: coming here is a full smorgasbord of nearly anything you could want. If you need a special item based on your dietary restrictions, such as a gluten-free cone, just let the staff members know so they can accommodate you.

You might be surprised to learn that the Hershey Creamery Company is different from the Hershey Company. The five brothers who founded it might have managed to perpetuate the idea that good ice cream needs to be made with fresh cream and fresh condensed milk, which is why ingredients have to be delivered to their plant on a daily basis.

Here are a few of our favorite flavors if you happen to be passing through:

Moose Tracks
Not to be confused with the nearby burger joint Blue Moose, Moose Tracks ice cream is a sinful combination of peanut butter cups, fudge, and vanilla ice cream. The swirl that abounds throughout your cup or cone looks a little like mud dredged through a path with the ridges of the peanut butter cup serving as the tell-tale signs of a moose spotting.

Cookie Cone
If you’re not in the mood to eat a sandwich but could still use a little cookie action with your ice cream, cookie cones are a great alternative. The additional flavor from the cone mixes in with the cold and refreshing taste of the main event. The combination just makes those last few bites a little more delicious.

Cotton Candy
The fluffy combination of spun, colored sugar may be welcomed in the cooler months, but it might not be quite as fun to eat when it’s melting in the heat of the sun. To get the same satisfaction and a simultaneous cool-down, try the vibrant cotton candy ice cream courtesy of Hershey’s.

Every bite of ice cream is guaranteed to be boosted by the fresh ingredients of Hershey’s Ice Cream, but it’s the staff that will really push this place over the edge. If you’re in the area and have a craving for one of the nation’s most beloved snacks, you really can’t go wrong if you stop by Kountry Kreamery.
