Ice cream connoisseur cheereeo shares a couple of scoops from Connecticut:

Wells Hollow Farm in Shelton has renovated an old barn and opened a shop that sells first-rate ice cream, including an amazing concoction of coconut and shaved chocolate. The several dozen flavors, made off-site, also include Cow Tippin’ (chocolate, vanilla, and caramel). Stake out a table overlooking the farm and inspect the cows and chickens while enjoying your treats.

A few miles down the Housatonic, Walnut Beach Creamery in Milford offers handmade ice cream in unique flavors. Chocolate cherry is fabulous, cheereeo says. Other choices include the best-selling Nutty Yankee (almond, coconut, cranberry), Mad Mollye (cinnamon, chocolate, Oreos), and Walnut Beach Mud (dark chocolate with chunks of espresso brownies and walnuts). The patio is inviting, the staff cheerful and accommodating.
