We just had Annie call us from Brick at 8 am saying she's excited for Hoffman's later this weekend for her vanilla cone with rainbow sprinkles. I love our listeners so much, 8 am she was excited about ice cream. You go, girlfriend.

I remember growing up and coming to the shore every summer and the ice cream was always the best. I'm not sure if it was the beach, boardwalk, salt air, or what it was, but the taste beat anything we had at home in Pennsylvania.

Now that I love it here, I still love it, probably more than I loved it then. It's a summertime "thing" here in Ocean County and I can't wait to grab my first cone of the season. Every single year and the scoops are getting better and better.  Especially when you're hot and it will cool you down on a summer day or evening. I know you agree with me, is there anything better than licking your favorite flavor, while sitting on a bench on the boardwalk.

Ice cream brings everybody together. Families love it, friends love it, and dogs love it (just make sure it's vanilla). If I ask my friends where their favorite place for ice cream they will all have an answer. They'll tell me the place in Ocean County, the flavor that they love, and if it's dipped in anything.

I know exactly what I love when getting my favorite flavor. I love chocolate covered in chocolate jimmies (sprinkles), on a sugar cone, "please."

So, I asked you, "Where's your favorite ice cream spot in Ocean County?" You App- chatted me through our 92.7 WOBM App and you emailed me your favorites. It's summertime New Jersey. We all know where Annie is going for her cone. Check out the best 10 chosen by you...

LOOK: See America's 50 Best Beach Towns

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
