National Ice Cream Month

Submitted by on July 21, 2013 – 10:18 amNo Comment

Ted Drewes Frozen CustardJuly is National Ice Cream Month (of course), and there’s no question it’s a favorite summer treat. (In fact, today — July 21 — is National Ice Cream Day, so it’s almost obligatory for every American to go out for a treat.)

TripAdisor has ten favorites:

1. Cowlicks Hand Made Ice Cream, 259 B N. Main Street, Fort Bragg, California (map), which seems to be known for its “Candy Cap Mushroom” flavor.

2. Dietsch Brothers, 400 West Main Cross Street, Findlay, Ohio (map), serves up traditional flavors, such as strawberry, but offers seasonal favorites including pumpkin and eggnog.

3. Handel’s Homemade Ice Cream, 3440 Renaissance Boulevard, Bonita Springs, Florida (map), is especially known for its chocolate pecan.

4. Pink Pelican Ice Cream Bar, 543 Richard Jackson Boulevard, Panama City Beach, Florida (map), offers “Circus” — a cotton candy ice cream studded with gummy bears, of course.

5. Holy Cow, 7270 South Broadway, Red Hook, New York (map), a Hudson Valley institution for three decades, serves up its signature “Holy Cow” flavor: vanilla ice cream swathed in peanut butter and dotted with mini peanut butter cups.

6. Leo’s Ice Cream, 1416 Trindle Road, Carlisle, Pennsylvania (map), has some spectacular flavors including salt caramel and cornbread+jalapeño.

7. Broom’s Bloom Dairy, 1700 South Fountain Green Road, Bel Air, Maryland (map), serves up old-fashioned ice cream right on the farm.

8. oWowCow Creamery, 4105 Durham Road, Ottsville, Pennsylvania (map), makes small batch ice cream in flavors such as chocolate jalapeño, cinnamon bourbon and sweet honey cream for cones, floats and shakes.

9. Sweet Cow, 637 Front Street, Louisville, Colorado (map), serves up a menu of 140 flavors that rotate both daily and seasonally.

10. Ice Cream Smuggler, 716 Main Street, Dennis, Massachusetts (map), is another three-decade-survivor, specializing in 27 flavors including apple pie, frozen pudding and strawberry.

Your Road Trips Foodie confesses that her favorite ice cream stop in the USA is still Ted Drewes, 6726 Chippewa, St. Louis, Missouri (map). Located on Historic Route 66, it’s been dishing up the good stuff since 1929. (Try the black raspberry ice cream!)

Another fun destination? Kimpton’s Hotel Triton, 342 Grant Avenue, San Francisco, California (map), is celebrating National Ice Cream Month with a Häagen-Dazs Sweet Dreams Package. Available through September 3, 2013, and starting at $174 per night, the Sweet Dreams package includes:

Deluxe accommodations for two
+ Haggen Dazs ice cream delivered nightly to the door
+ A special ice cream scoop to take home
+ A hotel signature rubber ducky

Guests can further indulge their sweet tooth (or, is that sweet teeth?) by booking a stay in the specially-themed hotel suite which features the “Sweet Spot,” an ice cream cabinet that is stocked with bowls, scoops and spoons and complimentary cartons of Haagen-Dazs ice cream. Best of all, guests can enjoy as many cartons as they desire.
