Summer is in full swing in Atlanta! With July comes sweltering hot weather, but luckily, it also comes with a great way to cool off: National Ice Cream Month. To help you celebrate, we've rounded up your guide to the best ice cream choices not to miss this summer.
Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream: Krog Market & West Side Provisions
If you're looking for imaginative, unique and delicious selections, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream is a perfect place to start. Now with two locations in Atlanta, Jeni’s offers flavors such as Birch & Marshmallows, Churro, Savannah Buttermilk and Whiskey & Pecans just to name a few. You can’t go wrong with any selection, but just to make sure you are 100% happy — ask one of the friendly faces behind the counter for a sample. They'll navigate you through the choices to get you the perfect scoop.
8 Fahrenheit Ice Cream: Buford Highway
This is arguably one of the most innovative ice cream shops in the city, as they literally make the ice cream in front of you! The ice cream is poured onto a freezing cold slab and freezes before your eyes. You choose from an impressive and massive list of toppings to create a unique and delicious frozen treat. The only thing more fun that eating your ice cream is watching it get made!
Morelli’s Gourmet Ice Cream & Dessert: Ormewood Park
You know how sometimes you worry a place won't live up to the hype? This is not the case for Morelli’s. It lives up to expectations and then some! Morelli’s offers speciality flavors such as rosemary olive oil, ginger lemonade and coconut jalapeño, but they also perfect the classics. If you want to be adventurous, this is the place for you!
King of Pops: Everywhere!
It would be a crime to talk about the best ice cream in Atlanta and not mention King of Pops. If Georgia had a state popsicle, it would be King of Pops. Located throughout the city, you can’t go wrong with any flavor you choose. Whether it is their version of cookies and cream (with Famous Amos chocolate chip cookies), watermelon mojito or pineapple habanero, you’re going to walk away happy.
Hungry yet? Go treat yourself! You're only celebrating the holiday, after all.
