Best Ice Cream
CRITICS, UPSTATE | Woodside Farm Creamery
1310 Little Baltimore Road, Hockessin, 239-9847
Fertile soil at Woodside Farm produces alfalfa, clover, orchard grass and rye grass, so the Jersey cows graze on lush pastures and live a low-stress life. That means high-quality milk rich in cream. Woodside flavors are as traditional as chocolate chip and as off-the-wall as bacon. The sugar-free vanilla fudge ripple is delicious.
CRITICS, DOWNSTATE | Hopkins Farm Creamery
18186 Dairy Farm Road, Lewes, 645-8652
Hopkins Farm Creamery at Green Acres sells 28 flavors of homemade ice cream, including black raspberry, peach, chocolate-banana-walnut and moo cookies. Lots of butter fat makes it delicious. The creamery also sells sundaes, banana splits, milk shakes and root beer floats. The farm sends its milk to Cloverland Farms Dairy in Baltimore, which returns the base mix used to make Hopkins’ ice cream. The fruit is grown at Fifer Orchards in Wyoming.
