Five great ice cream places in Elkhart County

In a cone, a la mode, with whipped cream on top, or just in a plain old dish — we just want our ice cream!

When summer turns the temperature up, we turn to these places for amazing sweet treat.

The Chief

502 W. Lincoln Ave., Goshen

You could argue with Thrillist’s list of the 31 best ice cream shops in America, but you can’t argue with the huge lines. That many people can’t be wrong, right? Stop in at The Chief for their Blue Moon ice cream, but they have all your favorites, plus a couple weekly special flavors!

 

Rocket Science Ice Cream

401 E. Market St., Nappanee

Tucked in historic Coppes Commons, Rocket Science flash-freezes your treat with liquid nitrogen. Indulge in amazing flavor combos that are silky smooth and feel all space-age-y at the same time.

 

Flavor Freeze

Two locations in Elkhart – 1628 E. Bristol St. or 23834 U.S. 33

Classic ice cream stand that gives you a choice of soft serve or homemade hand-dipped treats in a mind-boggling array of flavors. Throw in a burger and fries and those are some good eats!

 

Yup’s Dairyland

53018 S.R. 13, Middlebury

Just north of town is the place the locals swear by. When you need to cool off with something sweet and cool, this is the place.

 

Dairy Bar

Elkhart County 4-H Fairgrounds, 17746 C.R. 34, Goshen

It’s only once a year for nine days, but the Dairy Bar at the Elkhart County 4-H Fair serves up some of the best soft serve you can get anywhere. You can get the traditional flavors, but why not try the daily specials? Or both?

 

So you want fro-yo?

Frozen yogurt lovers, you’re not frozen out in Elkhart County. No, sir! Try Twisted Cow, 105 C.R. 6, Elkhart, or Honey’s, 620 W. Lincoln Ave., Goshen.

Whatever treat you get, we’d love to see (we won’t drool much!). Share your photos on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter and be sure to use #INElkhartCo
