Buzzfeed put together a list of the BEST ICE-CREAM places worldwide you need to visit before you die and Louisville landed at #2!
Jeni’s has “scoop shops” across the United States, but for the true ice cream aficionado, make a stop at the company’s original Columbus location. There you will find classics like salted caramel and constantly updated limited-edition and seasonal flavors like roasted strawberry buttermilk. (I''ve eaten here and it's FANTASTIC).
1. Salt & Straw in Portland, OR
BERRIES, BERRIES, BERRIES. Oregon is known for its berries, so be sure to try one of the joint’s limited edition flavors that showcases the fruit: strawberry with cilantro lime cheesecake or goat cheese marionberry habanero, perhaps? If you’re not in the mood for fruit, don’t be sad. Delightful flavors like coffee & bourbon or freckled woodblock chocolate await!
2. The Comfy Cow in Louisville!!
Where do we even begin? Maybe with the mouth-watering signature flavors, like Bourbon Ball, which features candy treats in a bourbon-infused ice cream? Or maybe with the INSANE ice cream pies? You can’t go wrong either way. Bonus: The Comfy Cow has an Indiana location in addition to its four Louisville storefronts.
3. Island Creamery in Va
Island Creamery has been churning up frozen goodies for nearly 40 years. If you’re feeling adventurous, try one of their many eclectic flavors, like Iced Nirvana (espresso ice cream with fudge swirl and chocolate chips) or Java Jolt (strong coffee ice cream with chocolate-covered espresso beans and brownies pieces). Oh, and for bragging rights, you can say you ate at the top-rated ice cream shop in the United States on TripAdvisor!
4. Giolitti in Rome
Yes, gelato and ice cream are different things. But guess what? Wandering the streets of Rome will leave you HUNGRY so we don’t care! Giolitti has been serving up ice cream for more than a century, and with good reason. The classy gelateria has pleased customers like the Obamas, it used to deliver to Pope John Paul II (his favorite flavor was the marron glace), and Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn visited the shop in Roman Holiday. So save some space for dessert and be sure to try the Nutella flavor.
So what is YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM place? Leave comment below!
