We asked and you voted...A LOT! Thousands of you voted--sometimes more than once (but don't worry, we scrapped any duplicates). So the totally non-scientific results are in! Here are the BEST ice cream spots in the Tri-States...

Coming in at number one is Pittsfield's beloved Dari Ripple! Personally, I've never been there, but given the overwhelming support it received in this poll, I may need to take a trip up that way with my girls.

Here is the top 10:

  1. Dari Ripple - Pittsfield, IL - 33%
  2. Heavenly Delight - Murryville, IL - 29%
  3. BB's - Monroe City, MO - 8.5%
  4. Tastee Treat - Mt. Sterling, IL - 6.9%
  5. Shupe Shack - Mendon, IL - 4.5%
  6. TCBY - In Quincy & Hannibal - 2%
  7. Cree-Mee - Barry, IL- 1.5%
  8. Dairy Queen - Quincy & Hannibal - 1.2%
  9. Spoonwave - Quincy - 1%
  10. Baskin-Robbins - Quincy - 0.8%

Admittedly, I've never heard of a few of these places, so thank you to everyone who suggested them. I may have to start an ice cream bucket list!
