Summer is the perfect time for ice cream! When I travel I’m often on the hunt for this creamy frozen treat. Looking for the best ice cream in the states? Here is a list of my favorite places to get ice cream this summer. Not only do they have yummy treats, but the decor is adorable too.
Stacked Ice Cream
Stacked Ice Cream has the best ice cream. It is located in a shopping center at 2211 N. Fry Road in Houston, Texas. The ice cream is really creamy and tasty. I got a strawberry ice cream cone with an added pistachio macaron. The combination tasted amazing.
The decor in the place is pretty amazing too. They have a selfie wall and a fun Albert Einstein mural inside of their shop. It’s a great place for photo ops for Instagram.
Hammond’s Gourmet Ice Cream
I love to visit Hammond’s Ice Cream every time that I’m in San Diego. They have three locations, but I’m always near the one 3077 University Avenue in the North Park area of San Diego.
The taste is pure deliciousness and is a great treat after a day at the beach. They have over 300 flavors and it’s always fun to the get the ice cream flights. This is great for customers like me who can’t decide which flavor to get. My favorites are the butter pecan, brown sugar, and mango cream.
If you like your ice cream on a stick then Pop Bar is your place! They have a variety of flavors and you can get your ice cream (or gelato) dipped in toppings such as chocolate, crushed waffle cone, coconut, peanuts, and more. They have locations all over the country. I have visited the shop in Anaheim, California and Houston, Texas. Check for your nearest location HERE.
Try to stay cool this summer! I will be posting more of my favorite summer treats in the coming weeks. Stay tuned! And be sure to check out the food section for a guide on where to get the best eats around the country.
