This post was brought to you by Turkey Hill Dairy, who sponsored our trip to The Turkey Hill Experience. All opinions are my own and honest based on our visit.

Win a family 4-pack of tickets to the Turkey Hill Experience!

We’re keeping our travels local this year, which is OK by me because we live in, like, the best state EVER: Pennsylvania! No, it’s true. Really. We have everything here! Except maybe the ocean. But to make up for that, we have the Turkey Hill Experience in Columbia, PA. We had the opportunity to visit last weekend for a blogger event, and it was the perfect day away for a family that loves ice cream (and their home state.)

Visit the Turkey Hill Experience – a local PA attraction!

Because there was a lot of ice cream. (And color me weak, because for ONE day, I broke the food dye rule and allowed Rainbow.)

First, we went through the tour area and learned a lot about the company. The walls were covered in historical information and facts about Turkey Hill products. (If you’re not familiar, Turkey Hill makes fabulous ice cream and iced tea!) We learned how the company was started, the ingredients they use, and all about how the ice cream and teas are made.

There was plenty to keep the adults interested and tons to keep the kids entertained. The ball pit was a highpoint for my son, and there were fun photo opps everywhere! I could have posted a zillion photos here, but I should probably leave a few surprises…

And did I mention ice cream? Unlimited sampling the whole time! Which is a good thing because there was no making it through this place without wanting to devour a few scoops. We made scented cards with our favorite mix & match scents, then created our own virtual flavors and the packaging that went with them. (I created “Nut Town” and my son made “Super Cherry Marshmallow”, but sadly I lost my photos.) You could even create a commercial! Sadly, we didn’t have time.

No worries, though. Because after our tour, we got to go into the Taste Lab and create our flavors for real!

We walked in and..oh, be still my ice-cream-loving heart! Flavors and mix-ins and syrups, oh my! As someone who has been a total ice cream fanatic since I was a kid, this was my ultimate happy place.

And the kids were pretty excited, too. And by kids, I mean my son and husband.

It wasn’t a free for all, though. We were given careful step-by-step instructions on how to create our masterpieces without going bananas. It was very scientific. Ok, no it wasn’t – it was FUN! We added drops of flavor, swirled in syrups and – see that wall of candies and nuts? We stirred those in at the end!

It doesn’t get much better. After some freeze time, we were given our ice cream to eat (the whole pint!) and I was really wishing we had a cooler to bring ours home. No sense in stressing about ice cream, though, so we just ate it! Or most of it, anyway…

Does the Turkey Hill Experience sound like a place your family would love to visit? Here are the admission prices, and we highly recommend including the Taste Lab!

Make sure to visit the gift shop before you leave! Everything was really reasonably priced, which is a great chance of pace considering most family attractions can be kind of expensive. There was no way I was getting out of there without this cow hat!The Turkey Hill Experience in Columbia, PA - WIN 4 tickets!

      You really can’t go wrong! I always have my favorite stand-by, and then I dabble a bit in the seasonal flavors just for fun!

    I’m so sorry we couldn’t go to this event, we were attending a wedding that day. It looks so fun! We have been to Turkey Hill a few times, but not since they added the taste lab. I would go crazy in there, nevermind my kids. I have no idea what I would add, but right now I’m thinking maybe a chocolate, marshmallow creation.

      A wedding would win out for me, too, but OH you have to go at least once! Luckily, it’s always here and pretty affordable. The taste lab was a blast and definitely one of those things that I would have freaked over as a kid! Cool mom points are guaranteed!
