Summer is here, and boy is it hot. The sun hasn’t been taking it easy on us this season, and with several months to go before it begins to cool off, it’s not going to let up anytime soon. People need a way to combat the heat, and regardless of whether your place of work is in an air-conditioned building like Haines or out in the heat during construction, there’s no better way to end the day than with refreshing ice cream.
Here are a few popular ice cream options you should consider the next time you have a hankering for a creamy frozen treat.
The Queen of Dairy graces her subjects with a wide variety of tasty treats at any of their fast-food chains. The Blizzard has become iconic over many years of service, giving customers several difficult choices to make in deciding what flavor they want. While seasonal items come and go, they still have countless popular options like the Royal New York Cheesecake Blizzard, the Reeses Peanut Butter Cup Blizzard, The Turtle Pecan Cluster Blizzard, and the Girl Scouts Thin-Mints Blizzard, each of which will be accompanied by their famous “tip test,” where they test the quality of the blend by tipping it over before handing it to you.
Ben and Jerry’s
What’s better than picking out a pint of ice cream to take home with you? Ben and Jerry’s knows that you would love for nothing more than to stock up on three or four flavors to enjoy whenever you please, which is why you can get their ice cream at pretty much any store and throw them in your freezer. But they don’t just have any regular old ice cream; they have nearly one hundred flavors to choose from! Among their most popular include Americone Dream, Phish Food, The Tonight Dough, and, of course, Half-Baked. Don’t let us stop you; go grab a pint and chow down!
If you prefer eating ice cream in a cone-like it was meant to be enjoyed, Baskin Robbins is the ice cream choice for you. Their hand-scooped ice cream comes in a variety of familiar flavors, such as Mint Chocolate Chip, Rocky Road, strawberry, and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, but they also have a vast catalog of unique flavors that catch customers’ eyes. Some of their popular flavors include Beach Day, Grilled Peaches and Cream, Baseball Nut, Breakfast in Bed, and more. Then all you have to do is pick your type of cone—add chocolate and sprinkles if you’re feeling fancy—and you’re good to go1
