Summer ice cream season is here! There’s no better place to find an ice cream shop than America’s Dairyland – the state where cows are king and ice cream cones are elevated to an art form. Wisconsin is home to more shops scooping up more delicious flavors than just about any place on earth. From can’t-go-wrong classics like vanilla and chocolate to new-fangled concoctions made with bourbon and bacon, find your favorite flavor in Wisconsin’s ice cream parlors. Take a peek at the case, make your choice and decide: one scoop or two? Now, is that really a choice?
Here are some of Wisconsin’s ice cream shops worth seeking out.
This Land O’ Lakes ice cream parlor is a classic walk-up stand in the heart of Land O’ Lakes. Try the Dari-Maid’s delicious flurries!
Briq’s Soft Serve
Look for the “Jet’s Dairy Bar” sign and don’t ask any questions! You’re in the right place – go ahead and order a cone, sundae or flurry – or kick things up with a Briq-A-Latte, a concoction that contains fresh ground espresso and vanilla soft serve. You won’t be disappointed!
The Corner Store
This Northwoods institution, which is open May through September, is located in the heart of the Northern Highland-American Legion State Forest. It’s a perfect place to cool off after some time on the trails or on the water. While you’re there, pick up some bait and some firewood for your campfire!
Toucan Food and Custard
This 50’s-style custard stand on Main Street is a blast from the past. Serving sizes are ample so come with an appetite. Check out the flavor of the day – it’s sometimes a little unusual but it’s always delicious!
While many diners choose this Italian restaurant for its delicious pizza, steak and pasta, many in the know head straight for dessert. A frozen Italian dessert, specifically. The “gelato cup” features three generous scoops of artisan gelato. Delizioso!
