Have you tried any of these top ice cream spots?

Personally, I’ve been to at least three of the ice cream spots on the Food & Wine pick list.

Here are a few ice cream spots Food & Wine seems to have missed.

  • Brigham’s Ice Cream – all over New England
  • Gray’s Ice Cream – Tiverton, Rhode Island
  • Homer’s Ice Cream – Wilmette, Illinois
  • Leopold’s Ice Cream – Savannah, Georgia
  • Lulu’s Sweet Apothecary – New York City, New York
  • The Original Chinatown Ice Cream Factory – New York City, New York
  • Richardson’s Ice Cream – Boston, Massachusetts
  • Scoop’s – Los Angeles, California
  • Shain’s of Maine – Sanford, Maine
  • Sherman’s Dairy – South Haven, Michigan
Can you name any other super ice cream spots?

Where do you go, when you’ve gotta have a fine ice cream fix? And what’s your favorite flavor of ice cream?

Do you know a secret hometown ice cream spot, or do you usually opt for a larger chain? If you pick a nationwide ice cream purveyor, are you partial to Ashby’s Sterling, Baskin-Robbins, Ben & Jerry’s, Cold Stone Creamery, Culver’s, Dairy Queen, Dutch Dreams, Friendly's, Starbuck’s, TBCY or another ice cream spot?

By the way, June 25th is National Strawberry Parfait Day.

You know the drill:

I scream.
You scream.
We all scream
For ice cream.

And that’s the scoop.

    The best ice cream I have ever experienced is in a small Montana town called Thompson Falls. The place is called Little Bears. The very best...we never pass it by.
