For all the ice cream lovers out there

I’ve been trying to think of a clever way to say it, but it’s just way too simple to overthink: I love ice cream A LOT. I love the way it tastes and the way it smells and the way it makes me feel so happy even though it’s something so simple and I especially love the adventures that come along with trying out new places or going with new friends.

If you talk to some of my friends (Taylor, Rachel, Hannah), they may tell you that I even cry occasionally after I finish a cone because I miss my ice cream, but you know, rumors…psh…

If you share my love for ice cream, here are a few less mainstream ice cream shops in CT I’ve been to recently that I highly recommend:

1) Ferris Acres Creamery in Newtown

When the drive there is almost as beautiful and amazing as the ice cream, that’s when you know. And when you can see the cows and thank them for their milk, that’s pretty cool, too.

My favorite flavor: Sweet Cream

2) Wells Hollow Creamery in Shelton

This place definitely wins for most original flavors. And their cake batter is the best cake batter ice cream I’ve ever had (and I have abnormally high standards).

My favorite flavor: Cake Batter

3) Grass Roots Creamery in Granby

All that needs to be said is that this ice cream was well worth the 1 hour and 45 minute drive. P.S. IM(expert)O, the sweet cream here is less flavorful than Ferris Acres’, but a little lighter/fluffier.

My favorite flavor: Banana Graham

  1. It must be in the gene’s. As a fellow ice cream lover, as well as your grandmother I can say, without a doubt it is in the genes.,My mother’s entire family, for generation back, were ice cream lovers.
