According to Yelp, This is the Best Ice Cream in Missouri
Yelp thinks it knows everything. I'm skeptical, but interested in what they claim is the best ice cream in the state of Missouri.
In case you didn't know, Sunday, July 17 is National Ice Cream Day. They should have made it to be Monday so we could all have the day off, but that's a conversation for a different day. In honor of all things cold and creamy, Yelp has named the best ice cream in each state. In Missouri, they say it's...(*drumroll please*)...Cookies and Creamery in Kansas City.
Here's a little Missouri ice cream history for you. I believe that Cookies and Creamery used to be the After-Party Sweet Shop before they changed their name. I would say that I had the scoop on that story, but I don't want to overload you with ice cream puns.
What about Illinois? Yelp says that's a place in Chicago called Vaca's Creamery. I've never been there, but their Yelp page does show some pretty epic cones.
My first thought when I saw the best ice cream in Missouri was "what about Ted Drewes?". Technically they offer frozen custard, but it's still the same food group, right? Ice cream is such a subjective thing.
You can check out the Yelp list for yourself and see if you agree with their ice cream conclusions. Again, skeptical me doesn't always agree with how Yelp ranks businesses based on number of reviews, etc. I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder/reviewer.
