This hot July weather is only kept in check by seeking out ice cream at every possible opportunity! Whether that means you have to pop out on your lunch break or make a scheduled trip to get your favorite double scoop, don’t forget to sample more than your local Dairy Queen. There are some truly delightful ice cream parlors and new frozen yogurt shops that offer tasty treats! Some of our favorites are:
Browns Cow on Main Street in the revitalized village of Phoenixville, just a hop skip and a jump from King of Prussia Mall. What better way to end your day in Valley Forge National Park?
The Franklin Fountain in the historic Philadelphia neighborhood of Old City is a real ice cream “parlour” from days gone by! From the root beer floats made with real homemade root beer to the original creamy colonial ice cream recipes Ben Franklin loved, it’s a must-taste.
Gumdrops & Sprinkles in Wayne is an EXPERIENCE to be sure. They not only offer a wide selection of homemade ice cream, but barrels and counters laden with candy and housemade fudge. All wrapped up and tied with a colorful, upbeat and kid-friendly bow.
Handel’s Ice Cream and Yogurt in Berwyn has a Red Velvet Ice Cream that is worth the traffic and long wait in line to get to. In a word, it’s DIVINE.
MaggieMoos Ice Cream and Treatery has Ice Cream Pizza that will rock your world! We recommend the Chocolate Lover’s Pizza. Located in Exton, Glen Mills, Warrington and Lansdale.
Whirled Peace, in both Manayunk and Paoli, is an eco-conscious frozen dessert company that dishes out organic ingredients in biodegradable containers. All in a WiFi friendly, comfortable environment that says “stay awhile.”
Yogo Sano in charming downtown Wayne also serves up gluten-free frozen yogurt made with organic or locally grown ingredients. The pomegranate is to die for!
