Sweet Ice Cream Shops
Three spots where the person behind the counter is just as interesting as the dished up: the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck in NYC Scoops in LA and in Columbus, Ohio.
As a kid, I remember the thrill when my dad took me to try a real Broadway sundae ice cream with hot fudge) at in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Even now, few things hit the spot like a cool treat on a hot day. I love the look on my face when presented with a soda fountain root beer or ice cream a place like the Lexington Candy Shop in New York. The Chinatown Ice Cream Factory, packed into a shoebox-sized spot just Canal Street, a mix of traditional (red bean) and experimental (taro) Chinese And more New York than queueing up for a cup of lemon gelato in Little Italy? Of course, every corner of the country a unique spin on ice cream. A Midwestern road trip complete without a rich fozen custard chocolate malt (with hot, salty fies for dipping). Prince tiny corner shop in Eugene, Oregon, with college coeds, families and presidents jockeying for a taste (President Obama loves the mint chocolate chip). in Cincinnati does a mean black raspberry with just the perfect amount of buttery fat. My adopted hometown favorite, in St. Paul, caters to the indecisive, topping every cone with a small scoop of a you want to sample. At the end of the day, we all scream for ice cream.
