Editor’s Note: Last year, Michael and Nicole Borrell began reviewing Lebanon Valley’s restaurants and eating attractions as the Lebanon Valley Food Critics. Since then, the couple has aimed to offer unbiased reviews of the eating and drinking establishments the Lebanon Valley has to offer. LebTown is pleased to be partnering with LVFC to share these reviews with our readers. Bon appétit!
Welcome to another exciting series, the “Ice Cream Wars.” We will be traveling across the Valley to find the best in local ice cream.
Our second stop takes us out north to a busy spot along the Swatty. Frostbitez, while serving food, also serves ice cream and other frozen treats. Located along west Market St., this is surely a local crowd favorite.

They have soft serve, flavor burst, and hard ice cream as well as floats, sundaes, and splits. We reminisced on our drive out about the last time we had flavor burst; it’s been a while. Frostbitez has an order window and pick-up window. Lines can form quickly but they move quickly too.
Today we ordered a small waffle cone of “blue goo” flavor burst and a Sawdust sundae. Our little critic once again got the best of both worlds and shared with both of us. But we think she may have liked the blue goo more.
The soft serve is thick and creamy. A little thicker than I’m used to, but flavorful. We weren’t sure what the blue goo flavor was. Was it blueberry? If so, we couldn’t taste it. An online search revealed that blue goo is either blueberry or cotton candy. They already have cotton candy on the menu, so we figured it must be blueberry.
The sawdust sundae comes with hot fudge, sawdust (powdered malt), whipped cream and cherry. At first in looks like a cupcake but when you go for a spoonful, you hit the sawdust. I believe this is the first time I’ve had powdered malt. It wasn’t for me, personally, but the sundae was good otherwise. I can see why people like it.
Our take: This place is located along the creek and has a wide open outdoor area to enjoy the cool treats. The soft serve is thick and creamy. Frostbites offers a number of different combinations with their sundaes and splits. They have plenty of options for you to find something you will like.
We give this place ???.
How will they fare in the ice cream wars?
