About Kelly’s Cone Connection
Next to the Glenwood Drive-In in Hamden, Connecticut, Kelly’s Cone Connection is a hidden treasure of homemade ice cream.
All ice cream is made right here in small batches using only the finest ingredients. And don’t be surprised to see Kelly herself serving up her divine and authentic homemade ice cream and hot fudge.
Kelly’s Cone Connection features artistic and creative ice cream cakes and pies in all flavors. Chose from your basic vanilla to custom-made maple walnut or mouth watering double chocolate. Sizes and styles are only limited by your imagination, for birthdays, holidays, and fundraisers.
Serving the Best Customer Experience
Kelly annually attends ice cream seminars and conventions worldwide bringing the latest ice cream flavors and frozen desserts to her customers. Believe it or not, there is an Ice Cream University where Kelly received her degree, Ice Cream Cum Laude, in March 2003. She has been a board member of NEICRA (New England Ice Cream Retailers Association) since 1993, during which time she served as President of the Association in 2002. Kelly has also participated on the board of NICRA (National Ice Cream Retailers Association).
Since the opening in 1985, Kelly’s Cone Connection has been active in the Hamden community, and donates ice cream to local charities, especially those that benefit children, like Relay for Life, March of Dimes, Skate for Leah and Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts of America.
