Like all great Shore spots, Asbury Park has a number of ice cream and candy shops, and many are exactly what you’d expect. And sure, their treats will cool you down or satisfy your sweet tooth after a hot day on the beach or a greasy handful of boardwalk fries. But if you’re looking for something a bit different—or something vegan—Bettie’s serves some of the area’s best frozen desserts in their fresh fruit ice pops and shave ice.
We’re partial to the ice pops—the flavors rotate a bit, but the coconut and peach are among the legendary favorites. While the brick-and-mortar location in Conventional Hall is the easiest to find, you might encounter a Bettie’s food truck along the boardwalk or during events across the town.
