Milkcraft, Fairfield

The Scoop: This is no ordinary ice cream parlor. According to Milkcraft management, the milk base comes from a consortium of local farms in and adjacent to Connecticut and are held to high standards. Hence, the mantra on the Milkcraft website; "From cow to cone."

All flavors are composed by executive chefs and graduates of Penn State’s famous ice cream food science university using the finest ingredients, like Valrhona and Guittard 70-plus percent cocoa ratios. In other words, expect a lot of rich and wonderful “inclusions” to the flavors.

Food Grade Liquid nitrogen freezes the ice cream for each person’s order making it super smooth with a "just made taste." Along with a personalized approach, folks rave about the proprietary Bubblecone Hong Kong waffle, made from all natural tapioca flours and farm fresh eggs.

Another point of difference: Whipped cream is hand whipped to order from 40 percent fresh cream.
