|The Dairy Queen in my home town opened in late spring and closed in early fall. Ice cream was a distinctly summer thing. It makes sense.
But ever since I moved up and out (20-30 minutes away ... woo!), I've been enjoying ice cream year-round. Cold Stone Creamery has become a standard year-round thing, and it makes things easier when new stores pop up every few months. But I easily get sick of Cold Stone's overdone flavors and mixes. I like simple things, so I go to Cliff's Dairy Maid and Buddy's (both in Ledgewood/Succasunna, NJ). It's weird to eat ice cream when the outside temperature is cold enough to not cause it to melt. But I do it, and I like it. Winter ice cream is a new thing for me, and it's good. #food
