We visited relatives in Conn for Thanksgiving and they said we had to try the Dairy Bar at University of Connecticut in Storrs, CT. Longish drive for us but worth it in this man's opinion. The university has a large agricultural program and part of that is dairy production and part of that is the ice cream served at the Dairy Bar. I had my favorite, chocolate with peanut butter swirl, absolutely superb. Deep chocolate flavor and large bites of pbutter. Lisa had "very good" raspberry. She said she would have to have side by side comparisons to be fair. Karl had vanilla, his favorite and said it was the best ever. Others in our small crowd were also wowed. Generous scoops about $3 each. If you are ever close to Storrs, try to find the Dairy Bar. Ask someone on the campus where it is cause it's difficult to find for someone not familiar with the campus.
I should have added this to my original. Don't be fooled by the large ice cream parlor located just off campus. That is not the one I am referring to in the original. Have to go on campus to the Dairy Bar.
