Just wait to that great tasting Blue Bell gets your way one of these years(or centuries lol)[:o)]
Herrell’s, Hodgie’s,Toscanini’s and a gelato place in Methuen Ma. whose name escapes me.
We Yanks take our ice cream seriously.[;)]
Add in my vote for Mayfield Dairy ice cream here in East TN… fabulous stuff, rich and creamy. [:D]
Food City (area grocery chain) also puts out a "Premium Homestyle" line of ice creams that are pretty decent for store-brand.
I’d have to go with Graeters as well, although there is a type of ice cream in Hawaii which, unfortunately, I can’t remember the name of. What I do remember is it was mostly an orange and white logo, featuring like the side view of an old man with a beard and cap… I don’t think I’ve seen it outside of Hawaii actually. If anyone knows that I’m talking about, let me know – otherwise, I’ll stick with Graeters.
Another just came to me: Jeni’s at the North Market in Columbus, Ohio. I definitely recommend the salty caramel.
Todd, amen on both counts. Have had ’em both and they’re totally great. Our fave is the raspberry choc. chip from Graeters.
Best local ice cream—Graeter’s in Cincy/louisville/columbus/dayton/lexington—best flavors are black razz/chocolate chunk and peach (july and august only). Handels in Indy—Oreo , sherbets, and chocolate.
Belfonte here in KC.
Among the best anywhere? Gotta be Braum’s in/around Oklahoma.
We used to use Goodrich….they made a Cinnamon flavored Ice Cream that we served with our homemade apple pies….OMG…It was SOOOO good. We used other flavors as well and if I remember correctly the were all pretty darned good.
In central Texas it was BlueBell….and that was pretty darn tasty too.
Best in New England – toss up between Herrill’s in Northampton, Ma and Sweet Claude’s, Cheshire, CT – your response is WHO? Try it.
Wilcox Ice Cream in Manchester VT is the best around here. It is distibuted locally. It is not super-rich, but has just enough fat to be completely yummy. They have lots of flavors ~ including peppermint, coffee fudge, and mocha chip (my favorites).
Promised land Dairy in Floresville,Texas used to make icecream which was very good.But they stopped several years ago.Their cows are not feed hormones or other things,so it had to me a different flavour.More like the icecream you would get at home if you lived on an old fashioned farm.[:D]
Does the Isaly’s chain still exist in the Cleveland Ohio area? I know they are the folks who make Klondike but in the 60s they had a chain of ice cream stores that served the best chocolate marshmallow ever!
Even our local Kopp’s can’t do a chocolate marshamallow anywhere as good as Isaly’s was.
Euclid Race Dairy was another Cleveland childhood haunt. Good ice cream cones and it’s where I learned about phosphates.
In Richmond Virginia in the late 60s, the Clover Room had the best ice cream. Their Banana, Lemon Chiffon, and Mint Chocolate Chip was my faves.
Oberweis has excellent super premium icecream. Headquartered in North Aurora, Illinois.
To my taste one of the best creams in the country.
Two thumbs up from me for Hershey’s.
Strafford here in Vermont, a fairly large organic dairy, makes about a dozen varieties of ice cream, mostly excellent; my favorite is probably just their plain maple, mmmm. Very expensive ($5 a pint or so) but worth it once in a while. We also have a much cheaper, old-time brand called Wilcox which has zillions of flavors — rather cheap stuff but probably as good as Deans of Kents anyway.
