I’m a year-round ice cream parlor indulger. No need for summertime heat to have me wait outside for a fresh scoop on a cake cone. Actually, as an adult, I’ve tried to justify every sweet calorie with, “Hey, you walked today—that deserves ice cream.”

Every ice cream spot has a go-to scoop in my mind. Enter: Sweet Cow’s Oatmeal Cookie made from milk, cream, sugar and real oatmeal cookies. The simplicity of this cold and creamy indulgence exceeds all expectations. Every bite holds a soft-baked chunk of cookie, each almost better than the last. There’s something all-too-familiar and nostalgic about eating oatmeal cookie ice cream—a homage to time spent with my papa and grandmother as a child eating chewy, soft-baked oatmeal cookies, perhaps.

A small-batch, in-house process with locally sourced ingredients is used to make their ice cream, which guarantees that each time you get a hankering for a scoop, it’ll be fresh and tasty. If you’re not one to crave oatmeal cookies, don’t fret, their six locations carry more than 24 flavors, including non-dairy options for those who can’t tolerate the cream. To beat that summertime heat, Sweet Cow’s Oatmeal Cookie should be considered in your ice cream flavor selection.
