Best Ice Cream (and Custard) Chains
Tue, 08/2/11 5:28 PM
Setting aside independent or local Roadfood-qualifying ice cream places, which chain has the best ice cream?
Handel's - Made fresh at each location, often with local ingredients. For my taste, dense but not too dense; high butter fat but not too much.
Bruster's - Similar but not quite as rich. OK when I can't get to Handel's.
Cold Stone Creamery - Over-priced. Just OK.
Baskin-Robbins - Better than no ice cream at all. Too cold to get much flavor.
Dairy Queen - Only if you want a sugar rush.
TCBY - Not bad; fresh fruit toppings are nice.
