The Best Ice Cream You Can Buy Online

The Best Ice Cream You Can Buy Online

When it comes right down to it, there’s nothing better after a day in the yard, in front of the grill, or at the beach than ice cream. Don’t get us wrong, an ice-cold beer is a close second. But we’re still taking frozen dairy desserts and treats if given the option. While we’re all for picking up the favorites like Chunky Monkey, Cookies N’ Cream, and Cherry Garcia from the frozen section of the local grocery store, there are more than a few great ice cream options you won’t find locally. And can have delivered right to your front door! This is the best ice cream you can buy online.


Not Fried Chicken Ice Cream

It looks like fried chicken. It comes in a “Not Fried Chicken” bucket. It was conceived of by six-time James Beard Awards’ Outstanding Pastry Chef Cynthia Wong out of her Life Raft Treats artisan ice cream truck in South Carolina. Most importantly, it’s made with high-quality, locally-farmed dairy, eggs, and other ingredients to make it crispy, crunchy, creamy, salty, sweet, and as pretty as it is delicious. Equal parts intricate ice cream creation, frozen foodie experience, and satisfying end-of-the-day treat, this ice cream checks all the boxes. $99

Salt & Straw Pints of the Moment: Rad Readers Series

Salt & Straw was grown from nothing to sensation by Kim Malek and her cousin Tyler on the idea of making unbelievable ice cream with cool themes, local ingredients and incredible hospitality. They decided to take a cue from five of their favorite children’s authors and churn out flavors based on their books. The end result is the Rad Readers Series collection featuring the following pints: Goosebumps: Monster Blood is Back!; Geronimo Stilton & The Frosted Frozen Feast; Smile: Words & Pictures; Amulet: Fruit of the Gadoba Tree; and Twins: A Matching Pear w/ Twinnamon Swirl. Each one of these ice cream flavors is more incredible and fanciful than the last. $65

It’s one of the most indulgent, layered, and enjoyable desserts we’ve ever consumed. But it’s also one of the most difficult to prepare at home because of all the steps. Until now!
