We're rounding up some of our favorite ice cream spots around Dallas so you can enjoy a taste of summer for a little bit longer! Whether you are looking for a classic scoop in a cup or cone or want to be more adventurous and pair your ice cream with cereal or make it a donut sandwich, we know all the hot spots. So grab a spoon and get ready to dive in because we've got the scoop!
Baldos, the place where they serve just about every flavor but vanilla. This cute ice cream shop creates unique flavors outside of your comfort zone to try! Not sure what flavor to choose? Opt in for one of their flights and try them all or share with a friend!
A personal favorite over here at Dallas Love List. Jeni's has some of the richest and creamiest ice cream EVER. If you check the ingredients you'll notice they don't include synthetic flavorings, dyes, or off-the-shelf mixes! (Does that make it healthy? Asking for a friend..)We recommend the Gooey Butter Cake, Brambleberry crisp or Almond Brittle, but really you can't go wrong.
You've probably noticed Melt because of its bright yellow exterior. It's the epitome of a happy ice cream shop. Their motto is also the cherry on top of some good icecream: "We believe treats can change your day and your day can change the world." How is that for a good reason to treat yourself to ice cream?
4. POKEY O'S
What's better than ice cream? Ice cream between 2 fresh cookies for the ultimate ice cream cookie sandwich! Pokey O's makes their own cookies and pairs them with a Texas favorite, Bluebell ice cream, a combination we all need.
If you are looking for a full ice cream experience then head to Creamistry to watch your ice cream come to life with liquid nitrogen! Rather than churning ice cream like normal, Creamistry uses liquid nitrogen to INSTANTLY freeze it. You can watch the dry ice type illusion take over the room while your ice cream is made!
A Miami OG, Bishop Arts is only its second location and a must try for the most fun and exotic flavors! Who's brave enough to try avocado ice cream? If you are the adventurous type then try out Azucar's seasonal flavors like mammy, mango, pumpkin, lychee or avocado!
7. MILK N CREAM
Top with cereal or get your ice cream in a donut sandwich at Milk n Cream! This little shop has so many different ways to enjoy your ice cream and some of the most fun toppings like Froot Loops, Fruity Pebbles or Lucky Charms!
8. SWEET FIREFLY

Richardson this one's for you! Sweet Firefly has handcrafted ice cream that you can get by the pint or as a cake! Plus they have so many other sweet treats to try while you're there like their popcorn, ice cream sandwich, toffee treats and more!
Fort Worth peeps, Curly's Frozen Custard is a must! This cute shop has concretes, sundae and smoothies galore. Stick to the basics and get a cone with your favorite toppings or indulge in a Texas Tornado Sundae! They've also got hot dogs and Frito pie if you want to pregame dessert.
10. MORGAN's ICE CREAM co
Another Fort Worth favorite is Morgan's Ice Cream! They've got some super fun and unique flavors like the Texas Roadtrip with brown sugar and caramel ice cream with crushed Buc-ee's beaver nuggets throughout. (Doesn't get more Texas-obsessed than that!) We are also obsessed with their pink push cart that you can have at a party or event. They even have an ice cream truck too!
