Today’s Contender: Fentons Creamery
Location: Oakland, California
Flavor: Toasted Almond
This flavor moves right to the top of the list. With the first spoonful you get that undeniable taste of almond that makes you go, “Mmmm, I love almond!” From there it is rich and creamy and just plain good. Really, really good!
Fentons has been around since 1894 and this is their signature flavor — one of 37 regular flavors always available and 18 seasonal flavors that rotate in and out of the mix. They promise from cow to customer in 1 week for unmatched freshness. The only way to taste Fentons ice cream is a trip to one of their two soda fountain restaurants in the East Bay. If you find yourself in San Francisco, it’s one of many things worth making the trip over the bridge for. (find more reasons here)
