My dear friend La Bon Vivantella came to Rhode Island for the 4th of July holiday weekend. Having grown up in the area, I knew the ins and outs of the best places to eat. Of course, she had heard of Gray's Ice Cream in Tiverton Four Corners. She went, she tried, and yes, she fell in love (it's all documented here). Yes, it's pretty darn good (especially anything with coffee oreo. Cabinet, please?!). But little did she know that Gray's has been one-upped in my mind (hello, no chemicals, fillers, additives) by The Daily Scoop!
The Daily Scoop was started in Barrington in 2000. There are now two shops, as they opened an additional one in Bristol, RI. They pride themselves on using only the highest quality ingredients and small, carefully made batches. The hard work pays off -- this might be the best ice cream I've EVER had. My favorites? Coffee Oreo, Maple Walnut, Coconut Almond Fudge, and Kahlua Fudge Brownie. Oh yum... You must try their products (check their website to see if your local grocer carries their product!)
Ps. for the BEST curried chicken salad sandwich you have EVER eaten, you MUST try The Provender, diagonally across from Gray's in Tiverton Four Corners!
