Get The Scoop: Top 10 Cones in The County

In 1984, President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of the month as National Ice Cream Day. In the proclamation, President Reagan called for all people of the United States to observe these events with “appropriate ceremonies and activities.” No problem, Mr. President!  Fairfield County has an abundance of outstanding ice cream shops  to make our summer days sweeter!  Below are my 10 top scoops (yes, I’ve done the tough job of tasting them all!!).  Don’t see your favorite among them?
