Tomorrow is National Ice Cream Day, and HerKentucky has picked out the absolute best scoops for you!
5. Louisville Cream, Louisville. This brand-new food truck and catering service offers unique small-batch gourmet flavors in creative flavors like cayenne honey butter and salted chocolate brie served in pretzel cones. My personal favorite is the coffee ice cream made with locally-roasted Sunergos. A pint of the month subscription service is up and running; look for a brick and mortar store and grocery store offerings soon!
4. Crisp's Dairy Treat, Ashland. If you're in the mood for soft-serve from an old-school drive-up stand, then you should get to Crisp's ASAP. I love their Tangerine Twist!
3. The Comfy Cow, Louisville area. The Comfy Cow isn't just an ice cream shop; it's an experience. It's a Louisville-area tradition, made with carefully-sourced ingredients and a whole lot of care. Everyone should try their signature ice cream pies at least once! Celebrate National Ice Cream Day at the Comfy Cow's Southern Indiana locations with a free waffle cone with purchase of any scoop and enter the Comfy Cow/ Delta Dental Instagram contest for a chance to win a $25 gift card to The Comfy Cow!
2. Graeter's, throughout Kentucky and Ohio. I know, I know. It's a regional chain. But, hear me out. Everybody knows that Cincinnati, the home of Graeter's, is basically a suburb of Northern Kentucky. The Graeter's brand dates back to 1870; their first franchised store opened in Kentucky in 1984, and Kentuckians have been obsessed with the dense creamy, French Pot-style ice cream ever since. Ashley Judd and George Clooney are well-known fans, as is Cincy native Sarah Jessica Parker, who famously has Graeter's pints flown in to her movie sets to introduce her co-workers to the amazing brand! Celebrate National Ice Cream Day with $1.45 scoops at Graeter's stores tomorrow (marking the 145 years the chain has been in business), or with buy one, get one free pints at Fresh Market grocery stores.
1. Crank & Boom, Lexington. This Lexington craft ice cream favorite has quickly transitioned from food truck to brick and mortar store due to their commitment to quality and cult following. Unique flavors and a commitment to the Lexington community are just a few reasons to try this silky, rich, delicious ice cream. Celebrate National Ice Cream Day with Crank and Boom at Burgers & Beats at Wallace Station in Midway, benefitting Glean KY.
Happy Ice Cream Day, y'all! Who makes your favorite scoop?
