RE: We love Mr. Shane's
I am also a major fan of Mr. Shane's, particularly their toasted coconut. Not far away, though, on White Street in Danbury, CT is the surprising Double Twister. This place looks like a dive set next to a parking lot. There's just one (uncomfortable) bench in the place, but who cares with such good ice cream? Not the local devotees, obviously! It's always packed on summer nights. Brazilians seem to love their sweet corn (!) flavor. I am partial to their hazelnut and its relatives, Baci, w/bittersweet flakes etc. It's hard to choose among Dr. Mike's, Mr. Shane's, our local Wilton gelato, and Double Twister, but each has its merits.
