For years, Alaska residents have claimed to consume more ice cream than any other state in the U.S. With a summer like this one, we’re confident we’ll defend our apocryphal status as No. 1. Looking for a sweet treat to beat the heat? Feed your sweet tooth at one of these spots:
• Wild Scoops – Ask for a baked Alaska cone; you won’t regret it.
• Rochelle’s Ice Cream Shop.
• Gelatte – Serving the Italian cousin of ice cream – gelato – Gelatte deserves a spot on our list. Warning: The lemon sorbetto might make you shout “mamma mia!”
