Mt. Tom’s Ice Cream

There’s a great quote from Steve Earle, “Townes Van Zandt is the best songwriter in the whole world and I’ll stand on Bob Dylan‘s coffee table in my cowboy boots and say that.” The Pioneer Valley has a lot of great ice cream, but Mt. Tom’s is the absolute best and we’ll stand on a table at Herrell’s and say that. If they only had one flavor, Burnt Sugar, it would still be the best ice cream in the area. You can do no wrong here. Try everything. They’re sure to have crazy flavors and they’ll even dazzle you with the basics. It’s decadent, but not chokingly over the top. Worth the drive if you’re not close by.
