Frostee's (Winterset, IA)

101 E Green St, Winterset, Iowa, T: 515-462-2777

Frostee's is a small ice cream place in the middle of the small town of Winterset, IA, birthplace of John "The Duke" Wayne. It only has a couple of outside benches. Although it mainly sells ice creams and shakes, it also has some hot snacks (such as hot dogs).

I inquired about a 'cyclone', their specialty, which according to the girl behind the counter was similar to a McFlurry at McDonalds or a Blizzard at the Dairy Queen. I decided to go for a small cyclone ($3.16) in the flavor 'banana split' and made with choclate (rather than vanilla) ice cream. The rsult was tasty, although it mainly tasted like chocolate ice cream with a couple of pieces of banana in it (oddly enough, it also seem to have some other fruits in it).

VERDICT: 72/100
A fairly standard small town ice cream place. No thrills, although I did enjoy the authenticity of the place.


  1. Visited Winterset for the first time in June 2010. I am from the Dallas, TX area. It was great! Had a shake and a drink. Neat place.

  2. Best smoothies in town but pretty high prices! :) lol still great!
