Today is National Soft Serve Ice Cream Day! I love Ice Cream and have been trying some of the local Ice Cream shops in the Capital District. So far I think Snowman in Troy had the creamiest ice cream I’ve ever tasted. I also tried Chill Out in Sand Lake and it was amazing too. The Hoffay’s Harvest House in Averill Park had a great selection and frozen yogurt too.

So on this holiday someone must be giving out some free soft serve right? According to there are several places to get some free soft serve today. Here are a few.

  • Dairy Queen – free Blizzard
  • PetSmart - giving out free dog-friendly scoops
  • Carvel - offering buy-one-get-one soft serve
  • Johnny Rockets - free shake with the purchase of any entree.

So what’s your favorite local ice cream?
