Spring is definitely in the air and the hot weather will be here before you know it. That's when you're going to want to sink your teeth into something cool, refreshing and scrumptious.

Let's take a look at some of the most popular ice cream shops in the area that just opened up for the season recently or will be re-opening soon:

Ferris Acres Creamery in Newtown, CT.

Rich Farm Ice Cream Shop in Oxford, CT (the Brookfield store didn't close for winter.) 

Joe's Dairy Bar and Grill in Hopewell Junction.

Popey's Ice Cream Shoppe in Morris, CT.

Denmo's Snack & Dairy in Southbury, CT.

So as you can see, a few of these popular ice cream shops just opened for the season, and a few others will be opening soon. Now all we need is to keep the warmer, nicer weather around so we can all enjoy one of our summertime guilty pleasures.
