Des Moines ice cream guide: 3 top scoops
Axios Des Moines' Linh Ta has something to admit — she's eaten a stupid amount of ice cream this summer.
- She's listed a few of her latest frozen endeavors, and yes, they were all 10 out of 10.
Classic Frozen Custard
🍦: Birthday cake
👍 👎: Huge cone for just $3.77, but couldn't eat it fast enough so it melted all over my hand. Amateur.
💭: This pastel-sprinkled treat is deliciously thick and creamy. Most importantly, nothing beats the nostalgia of yelling your order at the drive-thru speaker that's older than you.
📍 4000 SE 14th St., Des Moines
👍 👎: Refreshing, natural taste for just $3. Wish it was closer to Des Moines.
💭: My eyes were drawn to the vibrant green color. This Mexican ice cream shop had fun flavors like Mangonada. Definitely an underrated stop.
📍1114 First Ave., Perry
Black Cat Ice Cream
🍦: Hawaiian Punch sorbet
👍 👎: Super creative and fun to eat for $5. Make it a permanent flavor!
💭: The taste brought me back to the Hawaiian Punch on tap at McDonald's — in a good way. It holds the fruity tang without the overwhelming sugar that leaves your mouth red and gritty.
📍2511 Cottage Grove Ave., Des Moines
