I scream. You scream. We all scream for ice cream- especially when it is slathered with fudge and topped with whipped cream and a cherry. Let’s take a look at the 8 greatest places where you can sink your spoon into a sundae in the greater Boston area.
New City Microcreamery
Located in Hudson and Cambridge Massachusetts, New City Microcreamery is an atypical ice cream spot, serving sundaes by using the freezing power of liquid nitrogen. And there’s some sweet science to it all…used in full view of customers.
This new aged ice cream freezing technique is no gimmick. It’s one of the best ways to make ice cream. New City Microcreamery flash freezes the ice cream in negative 300 plus degree liquid, quickly. By freezing the ice cream quickly, ice crystals do not develop like in other ice cream making techniques. Right away you can taste that smooth creamy texture of your new favorite sweet treat.
Make the most of your trip to New City Microcreamery in Cambridge by extending your weekend with a stay at DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Boston – Cambridge or Hampton Inn Boston/Cambridge. Both hotels are within in a mile and a half of this amazing gastronomic discovery.
Popovers on the Square
With locations in Portsmouth and Epping, New Hampshire, Popovers on the Square specializes in that quintessential carb, the popover. While they are served on their own and as a sandwich, they are best when enjoyed as a sundae. Popovers on the Square goes the extra mile with two, good-sized scoops of ice cream, served in the warm popover, and topped with chocolate and caramel sauces.
Since 1951, Bubbling Brook in Westwood, Massachusetts, has been serving plate tipping portions of fried seafood and lobster rolls- and some of the best ice cream to end your meal. The menu has everything from Frappes and Banana Splits to their tremendous Hot Fudge sundae- a treat so perfect, it will turn any frown upside down. It is easy to say, Bubbling Brook’s sundae is the perfect medicine on a bad day.
