I like to write about ice cream. And I like to write about it even more when it is more appropriate ice cream weather- when I can sit outside, on a patio or in a park, and enjoy my scoops in the sunshine. I do eat ice cream year 'round, even when my teeth are chattering from 12 degree temperatures, but it is definitely more enjoyable in the summer when it can cool you down.
I think that my favorite ice cream, so far, in Rhode Island is the Daily Scoop in Barrington. It is an adorable little shop with a great outdoor patio and lots of delicious flavors. They also have a pretty great low-fat ice cream selection, although I only know those flavors by name. Whenever I'm there, I can't resist the full-fat stuff.
Two of my favorite flavors are the peanut butter banana and the chocolate fudge brownie (especially when they are together in one cup):
Peanut butter and banana were made to be together, and mixed with some chewy brownie the mixture is just perfect for a sweet tooth like me. Just beware that a two-scoop cup is quite large- and you may not be able to stop yourself from eating the entire thing (like me).
Andy likes the oreo and peanut butter cup:
Also good choices, especially when your scoops contain big chunks of candy and cookie.
The Daily Scoop is also located right off the East Bay bike path, so if you want to feel better about eating all this ice cream, jump on your ten-speed and ride to the location.
