We just launched the fourth annual SocialCPAs Social Media Survey and the response has been great!
We added a Just for Fun question to the 2013 survey that asked people to share their favorite place to get ice cream or gelato. The answers have been great and we will be sharing some of them on our blog.
I would like to share my choices for favorite ice cream and gelato. Unfortunately, when it comes to ice cream I don't think I can pick just one. So, I won't. Here are a few of my favorite places that I have been known to get an ice cream or two.
First, you need to check out The Big Dipper in Apalacian, NY. The Big Dipper Ice Cream can be found right off Route 17 and shares a parking lot with The Big Dipper BBQ. Time your visit correctly and you can enjoy both. The Dippa serves large portions of ice cream at reasonable prices. My only complaint is that they feel the need to close during the winter months!
One of my favorite places in the world is Cape Cod, Massachusetts. There are no shortages of ice cream shops on the Cape, but my favorite is Twin Acres in Sandwich. I highly recommend a vacation on the Cape and that you spend time searching out ice cream shops on Routes 6A and 28. Same complaint here, many ice cream shops on the Cape find it necessary to close during the winter months!
As for gelato, it's an easier choice. My favorite gelato can be found at Perché no! (translation - Why Not!) in Florence, Italy! We discovered this place during our last trip and can't wait to return. Rumor has it that this author finished off their largest size gelato. All I remember is the owner asking if I had plans to eat it "by yourself"? I think he was impressed!
Oh yeah, if you haven't already done so, please take our survey!
