No matter the age, generation classification, political affiliation, none of that matters when it comes to this particular subject that we can all agree on...

Summer means ice cream.

I don't think i've ever known someone that doesn't like, in some way, shape, or form. enjoy ice cream, especially on a hot day, and undoubtedly when it comes from a truck rolling through town playing that infamous jingle.

I have always enjoyed stopping by my favorite local ice cream shops and choosing a new flavor. Whether it's a hot fudge sundae, chocolate peanut butter ice cream in a cone, or an ice cream sandwich, count me in.

The Hudson Valley has strange ice cream flavors. From lemon poppyseed to thai iced tea and barn boots, there aren't any boring flavors in our area.

A 'Premiere' Hudson Valley treat shop was expanding their space during the winter months to prepare for a busy summer season.
