The 7 Most Delicious Ice Cream Joints in the Greater Danbury Area
Ice Cream! I would eat it every single day until the day I die if it was as healthy as kale.
Ice Cream is right up there on my list of favorite foods with beef tenderloin, scallops, lobster, fish fries, french fries, split pea soup, along with so many more. So I like to eat, don’t judge me!
I’ve enjoyed many an ice cream cone in my 38 years in the greater Danbury area, so with the help of Yelp.com and my passion for the almighty ice cream cone, the following are, The Top 7 Best Places in the Greater Danbury Area to Enjoy Ice Cream:
Where do I start? Ferris Acres is the Holy Grail of ice cream. With so many flavors and combinations, it’s tough to choose. I almost feel guilty just ordering a chocolate cone. Indulge your ice cream fantasies and make the move and order the Cowabunga Crunch, chocolate ice cream with caramel swirls and walnuts. For the full menu of ice cream flavors, click this link. Ferris Acres Creamery can be found at 144 Sugar St. in Newtown directly off Route 302.
Honestly, I have never had the opportunity to sample IL Bacio Ice Cream, which obviously makes me a loser. The ice cream is all homemade, and according to Yelp reviewers, it is absolutely the best ice cream around. Many reviewers rave about their Cookie Monster flavor. IL Bacio is located at 30 Germantown Road in Danbury
Dr. Mike’s has spent many a year at its home on Greenwood Ave. in Bethel. I remember taking my kids for that special ice cream run 20 years ago. The Chocolate Lace is to die for, and has always been my go-to flavor. Their Pumpkin Ice Cream when it’s in season is a must-lick. Dr. Mike’s can be found at 158 Greenwood Ave. in Bethel.
What I love about Cold Stone is that you can order a cone, a dish, or a pint, or a quart of ice cream to take home, and it’s all made fresh every day right in their stores.You can order up a simple vanilla cone or go with my fav, which I feel I must have every time I go in. It’s their Mud Pie Mojo with coffee ice cream and oreo cookies, peanut butter, roasted almonds, and fudge. Hey Hey, My My! Stone Cold Creamery is located at 28 Backus Ave., across the street from the Danbury Square Mall.
The Sweet Spot is a full service sugar heaven and features not only ice cream but cupcakes, cookies, soups, and sandwiches. They also won Best Ice Cream Shop in the 2015 I-95 Moosie Awards. I am embarrassed to say I have not made a visit to this much talked about dessert haven. Many go for the ice cream, but their cupcakes and special order cakes are raved about on Yelp.com. You’ll find The Sweet Spot at 60 Railroad St. in New Milford right across from the tracks.
Double Twister features delicious ice cream and frozen yogurt plus you’re gonna love this, they’re right next to a pizza shop! My fav is the Strawberry Shortcake ice cream. I found that a single scoop is more than enough and their prices are very fair. Double Twister can be found at 164 White St. in Danbury right next to Soho Pizza.
This is where I go when I’m in the mood for a real milkshake! Even I couldn’t finish a regular size shake. You have to order up a Brownie Freak Shake. It’s insane. Make sure to share this bad boy with a friend because you’ll never finish it yourself. It’s made with vanilla ice cream blended with brownies and caramel, topped with cookies, brownies, whipped cream, chocolate chips, and chocolate sauce. This milkshake is worthy of my bucket list category, “Things I Must Eat Before I Die”, the Cream & Sugar Cafe is at 7 PT Barnum Square in Bethel. Oh yeah, bring along a bib!
