The Best Ice Cream Shop in the State is in Iowa City [PHOTOS]
A new list done by Thrillist reveals the best ice cream shop in all 50 states, and the winner for Iowa is right here on the east side!
Summer is finally here, and what goes better with summer than ICE CREAM? There are plenty of places to grab some ice cream here in the Corridor, but which one is the very best? Well, according to Thrillist, it’s Heyn’s Premium Ice Cream in Iowa City!
Heyn’s is located on South 1st Avenue in Iowa City, but also has a location on Cherry Street in North Liberty. Thrillist had some great things to say about it:
“Apologies to the much-celebrated Blue Bunny Ice Cream Parlor in Le Mars, but the 14% butterfat ice cream at Heyn’s has them beat as the Iowa City-born creamery pushes towards its 40th birthday. The turquoise-rimmed blackboards and cow-spotted cases will beckon you towards flavors like bright yet creamy lemon custard will make you think there must be some kind of dark ice cream magic at work. Meanwhile, the monster mash (peanut butter, M&Ms, cookie dough) will make you suddenly less hostile towards infuriatingly catchy holiday novelty songs.”
According to their website, Heyn’s has over 40 flavors of not only ice cream, but also frozen yogurt, sorbet, and soft serve! They even have three “summer sensations:” Mango, Key Lime Cheesecake, and Peach Yogurt. Here are some photos from the shop:
