The Best Ice Cream Cone in 2012

And the WINNER IS…

Honestly, I couldn’t pick a favorite for everything because each one is unique in what it offers.  So without further adieu, this is what each one wins!

Best Use of Remaining Ice Cream of the Day.  Whatever they have left in the freezer, they mix together to make a new combination.  Thus, voila!  A new flavor!

Lowest Hand dipped ice cream cone price.  I was shocked that we paid $1.75 for a huge scoop of ice cream.

Most Available Soft Serve Flavors.  With over 20 flavors of soft serve to choose from plus the ability to dip it in chocolate and other flavors and even a crunch mixture, I was in heaven!

Best Customer service.  Grandma and Grandpa worked the store personally themselves and made you feel welcome and right at home!

Best atmosphere.  Don’t get me wrong, the ice cream was delicious, but the real soda fountain experience made this fun for everyone!

Best Flavor.  Of all the ice cream we ate all summer long, Grand Ole Creamery’s flavor is the most rich and delicious.

Friendliest Staff.  We tried every flavor before we finally settled on our choices.  And not once did they seem irritated!

Best Organic Experience.  Even though the mint ice cream wasn’t green (no added preservatives or food coloring this ice cream), the flavors were bold and delicious.

Best Chance to have 2 Flavors without paying for 2 scoops.  Top it off with an izzy and your day is made!

Lowest price for Soft Serve.  Kiddie cones are $0.75.  And there is lots of different ways to eat the cold frozen goodness!

Next summer look for reviews on Selma’s, Nelson’s, The Big Dipper, Ozzie’s, and the Village Scoop.  If you know of any locally owned ice cream shoppes, please let me know.  I would love to include them in my reviews.

Thank you for taking this delicious journey with me and I hope you have had a chance to go out and enjoy some local goodness!

    Fabulous idea! I took my son to every Laser Tag arena within 50 miles of home last year and should have documented that.
