No Cone Shall Stand Alone

Where would you learn how to make ice cream? At Sundae school.

ice-cream-earthJuly is National Ice Cream Month and if you have yet to properly celebrate then grab a cone and hold it high – then hurry up and eat it or you’ll have ice cream running down your arm : )

I live in St. Louis, Missouri, and we are blessed with Ted Drewes. They have been serving Frozen Custard since 1929 and I have to tell you it is quite heavenly.  During the summer months there is always a crowd hanging out in front!

Though I love Ted Drewes, the best ice cream I have ever tried is the Honey Ice Cream at the Fairmont in San Francisco.  My guess is that the honey comes straight from their roof top bee population.

A dear friend of mine raves about Tillamook Cheese Factory in Oregon. Yes, they have cheese, but the ice cream sounds amazing. It is also available for purchase in many of the grocery stores in Oregon.

If you are ever in Philadelphia, I hear the place to go is Capogiro Gelato. Known for their fine artisanal gelatos, you can check out their daily flavors here.

Seattle bound folks should head on over to Molly Moon’s Homemade Ice Cream Shop. They create many interesting flavors over at Molly Moon’s. They even invite people to request a flavor, you never know, they may make yours.

Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream can be found in Ohio and in Tennessee. They have several signature flavors, as well as perennials, limited editions, sorbets and frozen yogurts. I am not sure I care what they name their ice cream categories; they all look splendid to me!

For more I found a few other lists for you to check out. Food and Wine lists several places around the United States that will have you-scream-I-scream-we-all-scream-for-ice-cream.  Huffington Post shares ice cream you can purchase and take home to the gang. Of course, National Geographic includes ice cream parlors from around the globe. And just in case you are in the mood to take a walk on the weirder side, check out this page.

Come on over to my Facebook Page and tell me where you live and where the best place to eat ice cream is in your neck of the freezer section!
