Ice Cream in Detroit

Summer is the perfect excuse to eat ice cream, especially if you live up north! Soon, the warm, longer days of summer will have turned into chilly winter days. Celebrate long nights and sunny days by eating everyone’s favorite summer treat! Sure, you could hit up the local grocery store for a pint, but this year, we are challenging you to think local! Here are some of our local Detroit ice cream suggestions:

ü  Treat Dreams. Ice cream pretty much is a dreamy treat, especially when it is churned on premises! Treat Dreams prides itself in concocting dairy creations that are new to everyone. Invented ice cream flavors include “maple bacon” and “mac and cheese.”

ü  Calder Dairy. Tired of eating all of the unhealthy pesticides and preservatives in “grocery store” ice cream? Calder Dairy ice cream is made with milk from its own heard of cows! If that isn't cool enough, you can have the ice cream delivered straight to your door from an old fashioned milk truck! How much “cooler” does it get?!

ü  Crooked Creek Farm Dairy. Another local staple that doesn’t include steroids, people travel from miles around to come to Crooked Creek! With over 16 flavors in-store at any time, Crooked Creek is totally worth the extra drive from Detroit.

ü  Mootown Ice Cream and Dessert Shoppe. Situated right in Detroit, Mootown is a deliciously cute ice cream parlor. Not only can you purchase huge ice cream cones, you can catch a bite to eat as well!

Whether you are flying in or out of Detroit Metro Airport, there is always enough time to catch a sweet bite to eat before leaving your car with Qwik Park!
