Warm temps are here, and ice cream is officially in session. Stop by one of these four Dallas ice cream and popsicle shops for a tasty treat this summer to satisfy that sweet tooth and stay cool.
If you’re looking for non-traditional, Thai-inspired ice cream flavors, Chills 360 is the spot for you. This fun counter-serve shop offers the best exotic flavors in town (looking at you Peanut Butter Jealous and Monkey Business) that are transformed into made-to-order rolls. The ice cream at Chills is made with only the freshest ingredients, and right before your eyes — literally! You’ll watch the journey of cream to ice cream in less than two minutes, using an advanced cold plate that reaches temperatures well below -16 degrees Fahrenheit, which creates a creamier texture while eliminating the need to add extra fat and emulsifiers. Chill out with a Chills 360 ice cream roll, and we promise you’ll be back for more.
Picolé is that ice cream parlor you dream about, with beautiful, photo-worthy popsicle sensations that will make you drool. There are plenty of flavors to choose from within the following categories: fruity, creamy, filled, and alcohol-infused (yeah, you read that right). Filled popsicles are at the top of the must-have list, with awesome combos like S’mores, Banana Nutella, Strawberry Cheesecake, and Chocolate Fudge Brownie. And when the clock strikes five, grab a lime margarita and take in the late afternoon sun.
It’s all the rage and for a good reason. Creamistry in Dallas offers up a premium liquid nitrogen ice cream, made fresh to order, fully customizable with vegan, organic, and non-dairy options. Unlike regular ice cream churned far too much, Creamistry uses liquid nitrogen to instantly freeze each ice cream order, resulting in a rich and luxuriously creamy ice cream. Customize your ice cream by choosing your base (dairy, vegan, or fruit sorbet), flavor, toppings, and upgrades. Feeling a drinkable ice cream? The Nitroshakes are oh-so-good.
Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams
Not only does Jeni’s have some of the creamiest buttercream ice cream around, but the thought and passion behind where they source quality ingredients and building relationships with their partners speak wonders. Your taste buds will be doing a happy dance with flavors like Boston Cream Pie, Brambleberry Crisp, and Buttercream Birthday Cake. No dairy? No problem. Their non-dairy flavors are just as good.
