You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream. Ice cream is in high demand in the Inland Empire where the weather is warm.
This frozen treat is one of those simple pleasures in life that is easy to find, always enjoyable and will not break the bank. The only difficult task is deciding on what kind of ice cream you want.
There are many different ice cream shops that offer their own unique spin on this classic treat. It is up to you to decide which type tickles your fancy.
For those of you who like to be in complete control of your desserts, Cold Stone Creamery is a good option. You pick not only your choice of decadent creamy ice cream but you also choose a variety of different mix-ins. There is a counter full of sweet treats to mix in to your ice cream ranging from brownies and candy bars to gummy bears and cereal.
If you are a little indecisive, there is an array of pre-arranged creations you can choose from and, of course, you can add or take away anything from those mixes. The sizes of your ice cream come in “like it”, “love it” or “gotta have it” and you can also get it served in either a waffle cup or cone. Although they may be a bit pricier than other shops, it is definitely worth it to indulge in your own creation.
For those who prefer a more classic and simple way to eat their ice cream, Thrifty’s is the way to go. This age-old ice cream shop can be found in any Rite Aid store. You have a choice of about fifteen different classic flavors and the option of getting either a single or double scoop in a cup or cone. The ice cream itself goes down smooth and is simply satisfying. The best part is that it is affordable.
The next option is definitely a classic but with a bit of a twist. Baskin-Robbins offers its well known 31 flavors but it is their unique ice cream creations that make this place worthwhile. Not only do they serve hand-scooped ice cream but they also offer soft serve, mouth-watering sundaes, creamy shakes and smoothies and sinfully delicious ice cream cakes. Baskin-Robbins prides itself on being “your neighborhood ice cream store” and with their reasonable prices and wide variety it is a sure win.
For those who like the idea of having a wide variety of frozen treats but prefer something a little more natural, fancy and perhaps foreign, Häagen-Dazs ice cream is the place for you. The Häagen-Dazs philosophy is to find the purest and finest ingredients and turn them into the world’s best ice cream, sorbets and frozen yogurts.
For a reasonable price they also offer luscious shakes and smoothies as well as their one-of-a-kind ice cream cakes.
Lastly there is Dairy Queen. This ice cream shop is ideal for those who like to wash down their hot dog or cheeseburger and fries with a frozen dessert.
Reflecting their “grill and chill” motto, Dairy Queen serves hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken strips and sandwiches, onion rings, wraps and even popcorn shrimp. It is a great place to get your meal and your ice cream fix.
They offer simple ice cream cones with their famous chocolate coating, candy inspired blizzards, classic sundaes, cakes and ice cream sandwiches, all for a decent price.
So whether you chose the classic or the foreign ice cream or anywhere in-between, there are plenty of options for everyone to keep their stomachs cool and satisfied this spring.
