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? Show them some love in the comments!

    Wells Hollow Creamery is sooooo good! They have the best flavors and great shakes. They have a great atmosphere and friendly staff. Love it <3

    While Rich’s makes fantastic ice cream that I would never turn down, Ferris Acres is head and shoulders above all others in SW Connecticut… and I drive 40 minutes from Stamford to get some!

  3. The Best Ice Cream is at the Uconn Dairy Bar on the Storrs Campus! You can actually ask for times when you can watch the ice cream being made right on site. Check them out…my favorite is Almond Amaretto, Husky Tracks, or Jonathan supreme.

  4. Updated link for the Uconn Dairy Bar!!!

  6. Missed the best of the bunch.. says:

    The Ice Cream Shoppe in Shelton on Bridgeport Ave. Hands down the best I have had, though Rich’s is a pretty close 2nd!

    How could Wells Hollow Creamery be bypassed? Great ice cream, huge selection of flavors, toppings, sauces, etc. and the outdoor seating is entertaining with the animals in the adjacent fields!!!

    Hibeck’s on Route 7 in Georgetown.

    Goody Bassets on Main St in Stratford!!

  10. Thanks for your recommendation! I’ll have to make a trip up to Oxford and visit Rich’s.

    Link to Mr. Frosty’s not working. Link to Longfords comes up with Spyware warning.
    Agree with Lurker: nothing beats Rich Farm Dairy in Oxford!
