    Kimball's trumps all.

    It deserves it's reputation, its base is the creamiest, better than Richardson's.

    Layers of toppings and innumerable mix ingredients only hide flavor. Kimball's keep their flavors relatively simple.

    Timothy's in Black Rock, Conn. They make their own ice cream and were mixing in dry toppings years before Coldstone existed.

    Definitely Dolce Freddo Gelato in Newburyport and Methuen--the creamiest summer treat around!

    Rancatore's - Belmont and Lexington

    The first place I go and the best for my taste after sampling many of the others.  One of the local ice cream treasures.  Can't believe it was not included.

    ......actually, after a little thought. It's Shaw's Ridge for their Chocolate and Moo's Place for their Vanilla.

    To the Author, Jennifer Nelson:

    Tell your boss to give you a little more gas money next time and get more than just one TOKEN Ice Cream stand from each of the "Other" New England States. Sereiously, just one from each of VT, NH, ME and Conn and SIXTEEN from Mass.

    Boston.com loves the readership of the entire WWW. But doesn't allow outsiders into their silly little contests. That's right. You have to be a Boston Reader to play the silly little games Boston.com occassionally has.

    Too bad your one of the few gigs in town. The commentors on your blogs have more credibility than your reporters.

    The Chilly Cow in Arlington--ice cream, frozen custard, frozen yogurt, sorbet, and sherbet!  Personal favorites:  mint explosion ice cream, java crunch ice cream, and chocolate frozen custard.

    Ashley's in New Haven!  Don't miss any of the oreo flavors(coffee oreo, strawberry oreo, chocolate oreo) blueberry if they are making it.  Cinnamon in the fall, and chocolate anytime.

    Benson's in Boxford - best ice cream in New England (especially in season blueberry, peach), and the height of regular scoop size is breathtaking!  All time favs - reverse chocolate chip and coffee malted frap...
    Posted by barbarasm51

    Nothing better than Benson's is possible.   Fresh Blueberry in Bberry season,  Fresh strawberry, blackberry and rasberry  from berry's picked right there in season.    I think this survey was about the best ice cream stands AFTER Bensons.

    Bensons in Boxford is by far the best ice cream stand. It is always fresh.  They use fresh local berries in season.    Cant get better.   I am surprised they werent on the list

    This list is way too metro-centric.  Bensons in Boxford indeed.  More homemade than anywhere. Go in August for a few weeks for the Peach ice cream, made from scratch with fresh local peaches. and don't forget Bedford Farms.
    Posted by billski
     I agree.    Made from scratch.   Always fresh.   I was thinking of the Strawberry but I have to agree the Peach is awesome

    Once again the Globe forgets that there is a North Shore of Boston. Treadwell's in Peabody along with Richardson's in Middleton are better than any of the listed places.

    And the Great Benson's in Boxford
