Readers' Choice: Favorite Place to Get Ice Cream

The summer season kicks off soon. Where will you get your frozen treats?

The weather is getting warmer and Memorial Day weekend is within shouting distance. That means it's time once again for swimming, sunscreen, and best of all, regular trips to your favorite ice cream spot.

You can get soft serve and slushies and frozen coffee drinks at almost any convenience store, McDonalds or Dunkin' Donuts. But where do you go for the real thing — the kind it takes someone with well-developed biceps to scoop out of a box?

Here are the obvious choices in the West Hartford area, but let us know in the comments if we've missed one of your favorites and we'll add it to our poll.

The poll closes Friday at 9 a.m., and we'll announce the winner on Saturday.

This review is all about you — your ideas, your feedback and your voice — so we hope you will chime in and check back.

AC Petersons is a fave in our house :)

Abby Dabby is ok, but their portions are skimpy and their prices are high. AC Petersen, on the other hand, is old school West Hartford, and has earned a special place in our hearts and memories over time - the clear choice.

AC Petersons, hands down.
