There was a HUGE line and I honestly don't know what for.i got red velvet cake ice cream with rainbow sprinkles believing that sprinkles make ice cream taste better and I was not impressed at all. It tasted like they tried to make cream cheese into an ice cream flavor. I was disappointed in every way. I would not go back if I was given the chance.

I have been going to this custard stand since I was a kid too. It is a tradition to come here and get any one of the assorted flavors that they have that day or week. There is a lot of parking. One can order their frozen custard and then sit on any one of the number of picnic tables and people watch. I would not miss an opportunitiy to come here for frozen custard.

I have been visitng Erma's since I was in diapers. It has been a family tradition that we are carrying on in our own family. The custard is awesome! They offer many different varieties and many other items on their menu. They have picnic tables to sit on and eat your frozen treat. The only downfall of Erma's is their long lines on hot summer evenings, but I guess you can say that everyone in Utica knows where the best custard is!

Erma's has been around for years. It was a family favorite as I was growing up and is a family favorite as the years move on with my family.
This is a seasonal operation and is family owned.
We really like them because they have a wide variety of flavors, two new ones each week.
They have a large parkinglot that is easily accessible.
They also have a large area with picnic tables for you and your family to sit, relax and enjoy your frozen custard and their country atmosphere.

PROS: Lots of flavors at fair prices
CONS:

Good frozen custard and ice cream with yummy flavors at a very reasonable price.
It's the only building in that area so the parking lot is huge. They have a few picnic tables so you can enjoy eating outside and getting some fresh air.
I do think its not in a great location. I would of never known about it if I didn't just happen to stop. I guess you can call Ermas a hidden secret.

I have traveled all over the U.S. and tasted many frozen custards and Erma's is the best. My parents and grandparents started us many years ago.
My kids go with us and will probabaly take their kids so hopefully Erma's can stand the test of time.

Wow, is all I can say about this place. If you are not from the area- you will not know how it is or where to ind it. It is a little fami;y owned place that is a little hidden, but once you find it- OMG...quite possilbe the best ice cream you will ever have! All of the reviews are right-you cannot be Errma's. The custard is so smooth and creamy and the flavors they have are amazing- there are tons of them. Plan ion waiting if you go on a nice night in the summer- but this wait is definelty worth it!

Erma's has the best frozen custard ever, not to mention all the wonderful employees that work there! : ) Every flavor is delicious! The lines really don't take long because the employees make and serve fast!

Erma's is the best ice cream shop everrrr!!!!!! I was first told about this place from my uncle and aunt. who showed my parents before i was born. Ive been going there ever since i can remeber. Their ice creamm is extreamlly good and i love almost all of their flavors of the week!!! My uncle was in love with the place and unfortunatly past away about 6 months ago. We go there all the time in memory of him. Ironically he was buried at the cemetary just down the road. Ermas is memorable and has the best ice cream... NO1 ELSE COMES CLOSEEEEEE!!!

Pros: cheap, great ice cream, unbeatable

.

I have never had ice cream that really typified the word "cream" as Erma's does. Just a small building, on a small street, they way things used to be. Besides creamy taste, the flavor is full, or turned up a few notches over anything I have ever tasted.
If the angels in heaven eat ice cream, this is the one they choose!

Ever since I first tasted Erma's frozen custard last year, I am crazy about it. It is truly out of this world. The texture is so creamy! They also have some interesting flavors of the week, parfaits, sundaes etc. which are great. In this past year, I must have been there 15 times and it is half an hour away, and it is closed half the year!

Erma's custard is by far the best! NOTHING else on your list even compares! Erma's has been in Utica for 60 years and is better than ever! Try their special flavors-a new one every week. My favorite is Wild Erma - it's awesome!

Erma's is the best because they use "OLD FASHION" machines which deliver the custard with a fluffier consistancy! Their special flavor each week will always have fruit, nuts, or candy mixed in it, and they also donate to local charities!

I had my first Erma's in 1964...loved it then and still do after almost 40 years. It is simply the best vanilla or chocolate you can find anywhere. I've been to Ted Drewes on Route 66 and tried those in Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, New York, Kentucky Missouri, Oklahoma and Kansas... None of which compared to Erma's. They offer the traditional flavors along with flavors of the day.. All are fabulous.
Overall from price to flavor Erma's is EXCELLENT!!

In Short
Since it's a frozen goodie, the shop is not open year 'round. Be sure to check what the special flavor of the week is before you order. Choose from many ingredients and toppings.
