N New England It's That Time of Year Again!

Time to announce any Ice Cream Shack openings that you know of! (Along with a shout out to your favorite flavor.)

I saw North Street Dairy in Waterville Maine has re-opened for the season, their Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream with homemade gobs of Cookie Dough is my fave-rave.

Toots Ice Cream in Yarmouth is not opening until May 6th, however, same for Benson's in West Boxford Mass...what's up with THAT?

Toots Ice Cream
137 Walnut Hill Rd, North Yarmouth, ME 04097

  1. I'm not a big fan of the place, but Hayward's in Nashua and Milford are open.

    1. The Big One is open as well....I think it's in Nashua, but may be Merrimack.

      Oh, and I love their german chocolate cake flavor!

        I believe it is technically Nashua, but it's on DW Highway, north of Greeley Park right before you drive into Merrimack.

      2. My favorite for years has been Muddy Sneakers at Lago's Lone Oaks in Rye, NH. Though last year I really like the new flavor named after their snowboarding champion son, Scotty Lago's Bronze Run. I believe it had toasted coconut, walnuts, chocolate chips. Thanks for the reminder. I think they open April 1!

        1. HODGIES in Amesbury opens up this saturday, April 2nd.

          1. Webber's in Farmingdale, ME opened today (4/8).

            Tubby's in Winthrop, ME is now open year-round w/ indoor seating. (The original Tubby's in Wayne continues to be seasonal).

              Webber's is horrible! Some of the worst hard-serve ice cream I've ever laid tongue on. The peanut butter soft-serve is acceptable. Deb's across the river is better than Webbers. John's Handmade on Route 3 in Liberty is open and worth the drive.

              Tubby's lobster stew is terrific, the ice cream ain't bad either.

                You asked for reports of seasonal openings so I provided one.

                Yes I agree that John's in Liberty trumps all in this area.
