Enjoy a Cool Treat on Ice Cream Cone Day

Did you know that September 22 is Ice Cream Cone Day?

Whether you prefer a regular, sugar, or waffle cone, you can enjoy it filled with your favorite flavor at one of the following shops:

Henry’s Homemade Ice Cream

Henry’s opened in 1992 and the staff manufactures its all-natural premium ice cream for its retail store and more than seven hundred establishments such as restaurants and hotels. The shop has a four-star rating on Yelp as customers enjoy the friendly service, charming atmosphere, and a variety of flavors. Choices include chocolate peanut butter, pumpkin pie, and maple.


Braum’s is one of the largest dairy operations in the world. It is the only major ice cream maker in the United States to milk its own cows, and each day, thousands are milked an hour which provides enough fresh milk to fill more than one million glasses. The family owns nearly three hundred stores all within three hundred miles of their farm, and they are like three stores in one as they feature a fresh market grocery, grill, and an old-fashioned ice cream fountain. Flavors include banana pecan, birthday cake, and chocolate toffee.

Ben & Jerry’s 

Believe it or not, Ben & Jerry’s began in a renovated gas station in Burlington, Vermont after the founders completed a five dollar correspondence course in ice cream-making from Penn State University. Today, there are scoop shops across the country that offer a vibrant atmosphere and friendly service. Flavors include chocolate fudge brownie, coconut seven layer bar, and triple caramel chunk.
