I fully recognize that this is a BOLD and controversial statement.  I'm about to crown this Jersey Shore spot as the best ice cream in all of Monmouth County, New Jersey.  With Memorial Day weekend on the way, this is news you can use.

Admittedly, my family has done more ice cream-eating research than is doctor recommended, and in our extensive research, we found something really special. Now, of course, you have a nostalgic ice cream spot that you grew up with (we all have them) and I wouldn't dare tell you to replace your place. I'm merely saying that it is OK to make room for epic additions like the one we found for you.

You would think that it is not possible to mess up ice cream, I mean even when it's bad it is good right?  Wrong.  Remember Dippin' Dots?!?!? Those are just criminal.  In complete contrast, this place offers a twist on their ice cream but they don't get too cute, which I appreciate.  They use high-quality ice cream, fresh-out-of-the-oven-baked cookies, and toppings of your choice to make CUSTOM ice cream sandwiches as big as your face. We've come to a very serious conclusion in my family. The best ice cream is in Monmouth County...have you been here yet?!?!?
