National ice Cream Month (July) is nearly over, so if you haven’t conducted your own Taste Test yet – time (and ice cream) waits for no one – especially in the summertime!
Scarborough Inn guests seem to have adopted the Hobby Horse Ice Cream Parlor. It is just down the block from our B&B and features an extensive selection of luscious flavors, plus toppings & sundaes & other desserts, too. There’s seating inside and outdoors, Winnie the Pooh on hand to greet guests, and the namesake Hobby Horse – perfect for photo ops!
Earlier this month, we visited TJ’s Ice Creams on E. Atlantic Boulevard & Battersea Rd . They advertise Homemade ice creams (about 30 flavors) & water ice, plus yogurt and sugar-free choices. The ice cream we sampled was delicious and I think we need to visit again – purely in the interest of research, of course.
We’ve been hearing a lot about the excellent ice cream to be had at Springer’s Homemade Ice Cream in Stone Harbor. But frankly, it’s a bit of a drive – even for ice cream. When we visited our neighboring community to the south for dinner recently, we decided to have ice cream for dessert. Even at 10PM, there was a long line so we decided to head home – gotta work in the morning. So…if guests want to visit Springer’s and give us your “research” report, I’ll post it here.
There are plenty of ice cream, sorbet, gelatti, and frozen custard stands on the Ocean City Boardwalk, too, so enjoy National Ice Cream Month – every month!
