Candidates include:

Does anyone feel like suggesting other great ones? A bunch of us go to a different ice cream place every week, so I need suggestions.

    On another thread, I nominated
    Sweet Claude's, Cheshire, CT
    Big Dipper, Prospect, CT
    Wentworth Homemade Ice Cream, Hamden, CT.
    ...which are still valid, though Big Dipper may be a little out of your 10-mile limit.
    Ashley's may be the best in NH itself, but I prefer their stores in other towns over the NH ones.

      I like Rita's on Route 1 in Branford.

        it is closer to 20 miles, but Dr. Mike's in Monroe is great

        misfire- I talked up Wentworth's before I saw it on your list.

            It might be a little farther but Sweet Claude's in Cheshire is quite good
