You might have noticed that many grocery stores are downsizing the variety of products they offer these days. Instead of having dozens of flavours and options, they select only those they believe are the most popular. The problem is that what you like and what they think you like might not be the same. In addition, some people just love to experiment, and having a wide selection makes them happy.
If that is how you feel about ice cream, your best bet is to head to a local ice cream shop. Here are some tips for choosing the best one to go to:
- Variety of ice cream- An ice cream shop should have significantly more options to choose from than the grocery store. If variety is something you care about, be sure to select one that offers a wide selection.
- Other offerings- An ice cream shop doesn’t have to just offer ice cream. Consider one that has gourmet foods, artisan foods, specialty coffee, novelty items, and more so you can pick up food for dinner or maybe even some gifts for loved ones at the same time.
- Local products- You’ll feel good about supporting your community’s economy if you choose an ice cream shop that supports local artisans.
