In our book, there is no bad ice cream. (We even count those cheap, no-name super market ice cream cups with wood spoons our mother used to buy.) So imagine us leaping for joy in our office chair when a tidbit came via email: "You're invited to Yelp's Ice Cream Adventure which takes place the month of July."

It’s a strange phenomenon. The weather warms up here and there and we suddenly hunger for hot dogs and ice cream. Our last hot dog was when, early October?

"The quaint little stand serves hamburgers, hot dogs, ice cream, shakes and more at a great price," Lisa Johnson wrote in the News last year. The Realty USA listing says it can be yours for $325,000. "Great op…

Akron-based Perry's Ice Cream has released a new line of flavors this summer, Escapes, intended to be more decadent than the regular line. Would these Escapes prove to be a local alternative to Ben & Jerry's? Or would they fall short of their lofty flavor goals? Our curiosities piqued, we bought five pints of different flavors ($3.69 apiece, although they were 2-for-…

Although Friday marks the opening of Lake Effect Ice Cream's scoop shop for the season, owners Jason Wulf and Erik Bernardi have announced a flurry of other plans to expand over the next several months.
