The Island Ice Factory is currently in its fifth season on the Carolina Beach Boardwalk. It is known for its creamy-smooth Italian ice. Leonard and Dot Ambrose have many delicious flavors that are made and served in the store at the north end of the boardwalk, for beach cart serving the boardwalk beaches, and for the mobile unit used at Freeman Park.
Ambroses’ specialty and biggest secret has been their fresh homemade ice cream. They love trying new recipes and changing up the selections each week. Looking through the glass at what is available, oh what a delight.
They have added many new items this season. To quench your thirst they are serving fresh squeezed lemonade, limeade and orangeade along with fruit smoothies, milkshakes, sundaes and freshly made waffle cones.
They also offer something very unique and really a good deal, the "Island Ice Cup." This is a koozie with a removable insert that comes with every large Italian Ice and can be added to any ice cream purchase. Once you have acquired this cup you can bring it back for discounted refill scoops of Italian Ice or ice cream. Carry it in your beach bag and use it at either the beach cart or mobile unit, too. This can be used year after year.
