If you're yearning for Chocolate Chip, try Purity's Bittersweet. It is just as good as I remember if from my younger years. Excellent vanilla base with "flecks" of excellent bittersweet chocolate. So much better than chocolate "chips". Mmmmmm...

It's a great place for ice cream. They have some options with no sugar added, and a great variety of flavors. The place is big, so it's easy to get a sit.

The have great homemade ice cream--many flavors. The only issue--always--is the long wait once you order to actually get it.
