I am an ice cream fanatic. I could eat it anytime, anywhere (I always have room for it). I love trying local ice cream places- the popular, well-known ones, as well as the have-to-drive-around-looking-for-them ones. Whenever I travel somewhere, I have to check out the local ice cream shops. Last year, my boyfriend was in North Carolina for a few months; we found a few out there that were delicious. Last summer, he lived on Cape Cod, and we would walk Provincetown, asking the locals which shops provided the tastiest cones. I was never disappointed. Everywhere I go- a new town, a new state- I keep my eyes open and my mouth watering.
I’ve lived in my town for the past 3 years. Just last year I was told about an ice cream shop less than 15 minutes away from me. I went- and it was the best ice cream I’ve ever tasted. Ever. My favorite bowl of it is their cake batter ice cream. It has the consistency of whipped frosting (and that flavor actually taste like it, too!) Their portions are HUGE and their prices more than fair. A small ice cream in a dish costs $2.99 and you get the equivalent of a large anywhere else. I added M&Ms and Oreo pieces to mine last night and paid $4.96 total (well, my boyfriend paid $4.96..because he refuses to let me buy my own ice cream. He says he likes to treat me and feed my addiction 🙂 )
If you are ever in the central Maine area, I highly encourage you to make your way to Fielder’s Choice. (They actually have a few locations.) I guarantee you will not be disappointed; in fact, get a hold of me, and I will buy your first one 😉
