Herrell's Ice Cream

What can we say about how incredible Herrell’s is that hasn’t been said before? This downtown mainstay has thrived in Thornes for more than three decades because of its amazingly creamy, sweet ice cream full of mix-ins and the ability to stay fresh with their menu. Among the ice cream shop’s 350 flavors — 365 soon! — are vegan, No-Moo (that’s lactose free), gluten-free, and no-sugar options. The shop is in the midst of a renovation that will create a culinary kitchen, expand the eat-in area and provide more room for Herrell’s pre-made desserts like cakes and cookies. Protip: don’t forget to get some hot fudge while you’re there. The fudge won the Serious Eats 2011 Best Hot Fudge award. “Our goal is to make things easier for the customer,” co-owner Judy Herrell says. “That means more items. And since New England is one of the few cold regions in the world that eats ice cream in the winter, our goal is to add some baked goods as well, like warm pie for pie a la mode, or cake with ice cream.”
