5 of the Best Ice Cream Places Just Down the Road in East Hanover, NJ
When visiting East Hanover, NJ, and the kids are begging for something sweet, bring them to one of the many ice cream joints in town. From dozens of flavors to cakes, milkshakes, and more, you’ll find that the area will not disappoint. With a variety of options to choose from, we decided a little help might be needed–especially when the little ones are begging. The following are a few of our favorites.
1. Last Licks
This establishment offers more than 36 flavors year-round, a dozen during the holidays (hint–pumpkin oreo, eggnog, gingerbread cookie, holiday mint), and a dozen Italian ice options. Alternative great selections are a chocolate wafer cookie or an Oreo slider. Planning a birthday party? They offer house cakes daily. With the list of choices, plan on some extra time while everyone decides.
2. The Scoop Coop
You’ll love this adorable spot, which serves large servings of smooth and creamy ice-cold treats at affordable prices. The selection isn’t too bad either. Add in friendly staff and what else can you ask for? Oh right–milkshakes! Note that there is no seating inside, but there is a bench outside and plenty of parking. We also love what they do in the wintertime–they turn into “The Soup Coop.”
3. MOSI 55
Discover an amazing variety of cold treats, including cakes and slushies. They also serve “Light Bulbs,” which are yogurt drinks that come in a variety of flavors. You can also try the green tea layer cakes, tiramisu, or herbal jelly. Their slushies are great and come in flavors like strawberry, passion fruit, mango, pineapple, grapefruit, and blueberry. The service is very friendly as well.
Family-owned, McCools serves frozen treats that make it a locals’ favorite. Choose from one of 50 (yes, 50!) flavors, which include soft serve. Or try one of the best milkshakes in town. Another of our favorites is the fruit smoothie bar. Smoothies are vegan with no added artificial ingredients, so get your health on right here. Bring the whole family and sit in the outdoor seating area on a nice, sunny day.
Another great option for dairy goodness is Beenie’s. Or if you’re lactose-intolerant, they offer non-dairy options. You’ll find something for everyone in the family with the variety and classic flavors they offer. If you need a cake for a celebration, check out their selection. You might not think of such a shop offering delivery service, but they do!
