Charlotte’s Finest | Ice Cream

Updated: Aug 27

Warmer weather is finally upon us! Woohoo! There is only one thing we love more than the sun shining, birds chirping & enjoying lunch out on a patio somewhere. You guessed it, ice cream! So where do we go when we need that sweet treat? Here are our five favs:



LAURA'S CHOICE | Golden Cow Creamery

Her Ice Cream of Choice | HoneyCrisp

...

Walking in the door, you can smell all the deliciousness! Golden Cow Creamery has some great flavors, about 20 of them, all of which are just a little bit unique. Not your average ice cream shop!

SouthEnd | 170 West Summit Avenue | Charlotte, NC | 980.938.0925




JACKIE'S CHOICE | Ben & Jerry's

Our Ice Cream of Choice | Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia with hot fudge

...

Ben & Jerry's is synonymous with "tasty"! We have been fans of their ice cream for a long time & while it is fun to pick up a pint in the grocery store, nothing beats the experience of their scoop shops. The fun, playful and colorful décor adds to the whimsy. Their staff is always friendly & welcoming. No matter how hot the day is, Jackie always enjoyed her Cherry Garcia with Hot Fudge.

GOLDEE'S CHOICE | The Local Scoop

Our Ice Cream of Choice | Sea Salted Caramel & Lemon Lime Basil (Non-Dairy)

...

Oh, The Local Scoop, you have our hearts! Everything is made fresh using local dairy. While they offer some traditional flavors daily, there is also new flavors each day & they carry non-dairy options too! Get a traditional frozen treat or try an ice cream panini if you want to be different. The texture is so silky smooth & the taste is too good to be true!

South Charlotte | 5355 Ballantyne Commons Pkwy #100 | 704.443.7812




MILLIE'S CHOICE | Ben & Jerry's

Her Ice Cream of Choice | Pralines and cream

...

There is nothing better than a classic, unless it is two classics. Pralines & cream + Ben & Jerry's = perfection! Their taking this southern candy to a new level. The combination is the perfect balance of creamy, sweet richness. You can tell all of the ingredients are natural. The Foxcroft location's patio makes for a relaxing trip!
