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 treats.
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
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!
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.
New on the scene
Two ice cream shops are new on the scene for 2019 – Vanilla Bean Creamery in the heart of downtown Elkhart at 538 S. Main St. and Dips on the Vine, which is right on the Pumpkinvine Nature Trail in Middlebury at 337 N. Main St., Middlebury.
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.
