It was a new beginning in the world of soft serve ice cream when Mr. Lee Savage of Chincoteague opened a little ice cream shop behind his house called the Dari Dream, which he and his wife worked together. They would open the last day of school and give away free ice cream to all the school kids. Ms. Savage would sit in her house and wait for someone to go to the shop for ice cream. She would walk out there every time somebody pulled up. They must have made a hundred trips a day to that little shop. After a few years of business, he decided to expand and purchase about a dozen 1971 Morrison Vans from England. When Mr. Savage returned to the island with the trucks, he began hiring drivers to cover areas from Cape Charles to Ocean City during the summer months. Although the name of the shop was Dari Dream, the name on the trucks was Mister Whippy. The trucks would ride through the neighborhoods and as the music played, the kids would run and get their money for a cool, refreshing treat. As Mr. Savage grew tired of the business in the late 1980's, he retired and left the building alone. He sold most of the ice cream trucks to men in Delaware and New York. In 1991, Mr. Savage decided to sell the three remaining trucks and the ice cream equipment to the Conklin family of Chincoteague. They rented the existing shop, changed the name to Mister Whippy, and stayed there until 1997. Richard Jr. then built and moved the business to it's new and expanded location on Maddox Blvd, where they are still serving the best soft serve ice cream you'll ever taste, available in cones, homemade waffle cones, many specialties sundaes, and much more. In 2000, Mr. Conklin retired the old ice cream trucks, and purchased a new Van, shipped it to England, and had a new truck built, which is still in use today.
Great Ice cream!! We love to sit outside mister whippy and watch the world go by. I have been to Mister Whippy hundreds of times in my life and have never had bad ice cream...never watery or bland like one review says.
i used to work at whippys i worked there roughly 6 yrs. the owners are fantastic and always try to do whats best for the customers. employees are supposed to do the same thing... theres a review on here that says the ice cream is watery...its SOFT SERVE people... when its 90+ degrees outside you cant expect it to keep its shape. Whippys is very generous with their portion sizes and with toppings. i cant begin to tell how many adults actually ask for kids size cones and sundaes. the place is great! Go visit and see for yourself :)
I truly don't understand the 5-star reviews for Mister Whippy's. This was the first ice cream we had when we got to Chincoteague and I was very disappointed. We had soft serve vanilla in sundaes and the ice cream was very watery and tasteless. The toppings on the sundaes were minimal. We were there Memorial Day weekend before the season got started so maybe things get better in the summer. We went to another ice cream shop two doors down that we liked much better.
