    Ron's ice cream in Hyde Park, hands down. It is the richest, most delicious ice cream ever, and has spoiled me for anything that comes out of a container. Plus, you can go bowling there with the kids, too, while watching the game (baseball, basketball, football, etc.). What could be better than that? :)

    Ron's is better than Richardson's Dairy, better than Lizzy's or Christina's or Hodgie's--all four of which are excellent choices.

    C'mon guy's, get a clue!  Crescent Ridge in Sharon is the best ice cream around, hands down!!!  They have only been around for 75 years!

    Kimball's and Four Sea's are worthy of the list as well.

    definitely Brighams as a staple of Boston then Peaceful Meadows and Crescent Ridge (best frappes hands down!)

    I'm originally from Manchester, so I had to vote for Capt. Dusty's (which I love anyway). 

    But how could you leave PUTNAM PANTRY off the list???  It's absolutely THE best place to get ice cream (off rt. 1 North).  You pick your ice cream flavor then head to the toppings bar and load up your dish with whatever your heart desires.  How can you go wrong? 

    There's also a candy shop next door in case you want to take something home too :)

    I am glad to see some of my favorites get mentioned here (Memories, Sullivan's, Sully's, Hodgies, Lagos Lone Oak, Richardson's) but Jay Gee's in Methuen and Hayward's in Nashua deserve to get a shout out as well. For soft serve Frosty Boy in Dracut and King Kone in Merrimack, NH are good. King Kone in Merrimack serve other flavors in addition to the traditional soft serve vanilla and chocolate.

    I need to travel south of Boston to try Crescent Ridge and Peaceful Meadows which I hear and read so much about.

    Wheeler's!!! 

    Mass Ave. right by the Symphony stop, no need to go driving out of town for some of the best ice cream you'll ever have.

    http://www.icecreamproject.com/icecreambar.html

    Come on.. you can't argue with a flavor list that includes maple cream, strawberry cheesecake, jalapeño, and s'mores. 

    Extra plus: no cholesterol!

    I think Cherry Farm Creamery in Danvers has the best ice cream around!  Great specials each week.  Favorite special by far is called "simply po" which is vanilla ice cream with fudge swirl, chocolate covered pretzels, and peanut m&ms.  Surprised they were not included in the vote?!

    Re: New England's best ice cream?

    My faves have been mentioned only once, so here's a second vote for Benson's in Boxford (great ginger; awesome waffle cones!) and good old Treadwell's in Gardner Park, either Salem or Peabody or right on the line, one of the few places with frozen pudding and grapenut.   No one seems to have heard of those west of 128.

    I grew up in Salem and now live on the other side of the state, but make frequent trips to Byfield and to Salem, and Benson's is a must-stop in summer, Treadwell's year-round.
