The Best New England Ice Cream Journey
I love ice cream and hot fudge sauce, and after receiving dozens of suggestions from friends and family on where to find the best in New England, I decided to find out myself. The following link shows the results of eating at 50 ice creameries in two back-to-back weekends.
To my knowledge, nobody has ever visited and rated 50 New England ice creameries, and certainly not in such a short period of time.
Interestingly, most homemade ice creameries used canned hot fudge sauce, which completely ruins the uniqueness of their product.
Thats a lot of ice cream in that amount of time. Whats odd to me is i notice you tried Richardsons brand ice cream at several places yet rated the same flavors differently. For instance you raved about the vanilla at Bedford farms yet when you tried it at Richardsons gave it lower ratings.
Well, I'm not really an ice cream fanatic or anything.....but just off the top of my head..... :)
