Eating ice cream before it melts in high temps is a time-honored tradition - in fact, I'd say ice cream comes in right behind apple pie in terms of iconic American treats. Check out these places to scream for ice cream in Hudson:
If you can make it all the way to the ice cream counter past container after container of tempting chocolate in Knoke's, I salute you. If you don't get sidetracked by their other mouthwatering confections, the trip to the ice cream case is well worth it. Choose from a cup, sugar cone or waffle cone (they'll even dip it in chocolate for an extra dose of delicious) of frozen flavors like birthday cake, peppermint bonbon and cotton candy.
Don't be fooled by its fast food packaging - a McDonald's ice cream cone packs just 150 calories and 3.5 grams of fat, making it a great option for those watching their waistlines.
Cold Stone Creamery
Cold Stone Creamery is home to all things frozen and delicious. Ice cream, ice cream cake, ice cream cupcakes, smoothies, shakes, iced coffee and ice cream sandwiches are all on the menu. Bonus: put a tip in the bucket and you'll be serenaded by the entire staff - dessert and entertainment!
Keys Cafe & Bakery
Keys Cafe may be known for their fresh baked goods, but don't overlook the ice cream on their dessert menu. Customers can choose from shakes, malts, or a cherry or chocolate sundae (fresh fruit and nuts optional).
No list of places to purchase ice cream would be complete without Dairy Queen and their famous Blizzard treats. Hudson's Dairy Queen location is perfect for picking up a Dilly Bar, dipped cone or Peanut Buster Parfait and taking a walk through Lakefront Park.
