Do you scream for ice cream? Do you love tasting every flavor behind the counter at your favorite sweet shop? Would you kill for the chance to sample delicious ice cream for 7 days in a row?
6:00pm every weekday Monday - Friday and 2:00pm on Saturday & Sunday
It’s burning up in HOTlanta this year! Being out in the sun makes us crave one thing…. ICE CREAM! There are several local ice cream shops that are unique to Atlanta, and no, I’m not talking about Cold Stone and Baskin Robbins. Locally made products and unique flavors made us pick these ice cream shops around Atlanta. Now here’s the challenge… can you handle them all in 1 week?!?
For The Classy Critic Ice Cream Challenge, we will be visiting 7 local ice cream shops, 1 location each day of the week, and learn about their scientific creative processes. Get your taste buds ready because we'll be tasting the best of what each ice cream shop has to offer! Each participant will get to critique and vote on their favorite ice cream. Then we’ll present the award for “The Classy Critic’s Best Ice Cream 2015”!
**Note: Spice Market has been replaced with a new restaurant called TRACE since Fall 2014.
Spice Market is a hidden gem within Midtown. Unless you frequent the W Hotel or visit Atlanta and stay at the hotel as a guest, Spice Market isn't usually on your radar for places to eat in Midtown Atlanta... however, it should be!
Kilwins is one of my favorite retreats after a long day or just to treat myself. In the back corner of Atlantic Station by Yard House and Publix, Kilwins is a family owned confectionery shop that has some of the best ice cream in town. They also have any and everything dipped in chocolate, fudge, sprinkles... you name it!
