Savor Summer with this Cincinnati Creamy Whip Ice Cream Crawl


Cincinnatians have their fair share of classic spots to grab hard ice cream year-round, but we’re certainly no strangers to a good ol’ dairy bar soft serve. There’s a special magic about only being able to get those twist cones in certain summer months.

To honor the city and the season, three CityBeat interns set out on a mission in search of the best soft serve, fending off brain freeze as the dairy dessert made its way into their hearts (and hair.)

A total of five cones was about the limit for one day’s soft serve intake, so while they couldn’t get to every creamy whip in Queen City, consider this a jumping off point for your next ice cream run. Just make sure to catch those drips as they melt down your cone.
