To say that the Hudson Valley is passionate about their ice cream shops, well, that would be an understatement.

Earlier this week I came across an article that said the best ice cream shop was in New York City and while I'm sure it's a perfectly good ice cream option, I thought it probably has nothing on what we can offer in the HV.

So I asked our amazing listeners to give us their favorite place to stop for the creamiest, most delicious ice cream in our neighborhoods. We had hundreds of comments come in through Facebook and our mobile app.

I promised I would share the results so, here they are. The following are some great Hudson Valley ice cream shops that you should check out. Supporting local businesses and having a delicious snack? It doesn't get much better than that.
