Ice Cream, North of Boston: Benson's

rufustfi | Aug 14, 2006 12:52 PM

After reading an article in yesterday's Globe about the fresh peach and blueberry ice creams at Benson's in West Boxford we took a ride up there to sample them. The article stressed that Benson's was one of the few places that uses local peaches, and local, wild blueberries. The ice cream was wonderfully rich and fresh, but the flavor wasn't nearly as intense as I expected. Actually pretty bland. And not as good, I think, as Kimball Farms in Bedford.

Any recommendations on where to get fresh peach ice cream?
