One of the great Howard County blogs is a HowChow
, a local food blog. They had a great post yesterday
about ice cream and snow cone stands in the county. Top on their list is my personal favorite: the soft serve ice cream stand on Route 40 next the Forest Diner. If you haven’t been, I highly recommend it as the perfect answer to a summer’s day.
They have a very good list, but two I would add to HowChow’s list are snow cone stands at the intersection of Oakland Mills Road and Montgomery Road in Columbia and I am told there is a good snow cone stand near Kendall’s Hardware Store
As for the true ice cream lover, I would recommend ordering Graeter’s Ice Cream
from Cincinnati and eating it on your deck or taking it to a summer movie at the lakefront. Graeter’s was originally a confectioner and make great dark chocolate and put giant chunks of dark chocolate in their ice cream. You cannot go wrong with any of their flavors with a chip in it. My personal favorite is one of their seasonal flavors: Strawberry Chocolate Chip. Their signature flavor is Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip, but don’t overlook their Chocolate Chocolate Chip, which it my second favorite.
