My favorite since I was a kid! It's not on the menu any more, but I love the banana pudding twister (banana and vanilla wafers in vanilla ice cream).

When the large sundae doesn't go over the top of the cup, and has about 4 bites something is wrong. The small cone was just over the top of the cone. I got out of the car and went to the window and ...asked if this was a large, and they said it was. Somehow I think the icecream should be over the top of the cup for a large. Probably won't go back.

Last night was the first time we got to go to Danes Dairy. I really enjoyed it. I had a cone with the Only 8 Vanilla Yogurt. Really good, smooth. We will be back.
