The Best Ice Cream Around! Thu, 08/25/05 5:02 PM (permalink)

I Know about an old Carvel Drive Thru in Ridgefield, otherwise known as The Ridgefield Ice Cream Shop! The owner, Felix, has been in business over 30 years, and knows what he's doing. He makes the worlds greatest soft ice cream, Vanilla and Chocolate. This is too long to type, lol, please comment and I will post more info Later. Thanks!

    Yes, i said I would write more.
    This place is SO reasonable with prices. There is a big menu to choose from! Many different hard ice cream flavors, and of course, the soft vanilla and chocolate. Felix and his employees make great Ice cream cakes, and a great value, for any occasion! Slush Puppies, Ice Cream Cakes, Hard Ice Creams, and all the freshest ingredients. So, If you're in the area, why don't you stop by the Ridgefield Ice Cream Shop!

        As there is probably a town called Ridgefield in most of the 50 states, The Ridgefield Ice Cream Shop is in Ridgefield CT and has a Roadfood[url='']review.[/url] It was just featured on a Connecticut public broadcasting program as one of the five best ice cream shops in CT. Some guy on the show named Michael Stern said he eats there every day! It is that good.

          I think Mr. Shanes in downtown Ridgefield, Ct is far superior to the Ridgefield ice-cream place and hubbie and I have done extensive research on both this summer.

          I love Dr. Mike's in Bethel, Ct. especially a hot fudge sundae with chocolate lace ice-cream and their fresh whipped cream.

          But the world's best is Herrells in Northampton and Cambridge, MA.

            Do any of you have one of those machines to make your own? I saw Emril using one on the tube the other day. I wonder how that tastes compared to what store my dog garps up an entire pig ear on my foot....nice.

              When the kids were younger we made a lot of homemade ice cream. The quality was variable, but it always got eaten. We used a machine that needed ice and salt, and then the machine with the bowl that you freeze. I have bid on ebay for a self contained machine, with the built in freezer, but was always outbid. I stopped bidding when I was told that the product would not compare to the salt/ice machine.

                In Harrisonburg, Va.,there is a place that makes their own ice cream daily. It is soooo good. Klines' Dairy Bar. I cannot tolerate dairy products, but I am willing every so often to eat their ice crea because it is good. The basic flavors are great, but they are always creating new ones. I love their Oreo ice cream. If you love ice cream or custards, this is a treasure waiting for you to find.
