When you’ve missed the ice cream truck, you can visit the ice cream parlor to get your frozen dessert fix. Sit at the bar to order a soft serve chocolate yogurt. Share a strawberry sundae with your date. If you want a lighter treat, then you may order fruit smoothies. Find the best ice cream parlors by visiting a restaurant review site on the internet. Also listen to recommendations from ice cream cake and ice cream cone fans. Parent newsletters are likely to rate such parlors because children make up most of the customer traffic at these shops. Visiting a few ice cream parlors to scout out the frozen dairy selection can be an enjoyable way to spend the weekend. When in the ice cream store, see if the staff use good food safety habits. Do they wear gloves when scooping desserts? Do they wash their hands after handling money? Read reviews online to determine the average wait time in line. Decide for yourself if going during peak hours are worth it. Lastly, bring a few friends to sample dairy treats with you and note their opinion.
