We’re always looking to make The Infatuation the best platform to find restaurants, and we appreciate your feedback!

Hi Infatuation reader. With restaurants around the country reopening, we understand that socializing in any form might still feel strange, and poses risks too. Should you go out to eat? That’s up to you. But we’ll continue to keep you informed as best we can. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to email us at community@theinfatuation.com.

Summer looks a little different this time around. While you can still hang out with vanilla sundae, your reliable friend for the past 14 years, maybe you can also use the pandemic to shake things up a little bit. After all, the virus has changed every other facet of life, so why not your ice cream choices as well? Here are seven unique, but excellent, flavors to try.

The Flavors

Christina's Homemade Ice Cream

$$$$
$$$$ 1255 Cambridge St

Flavor: Coconut Butterfinger

Apparently in the United Kingdom, there are coconut-flavored Butterfinger cups for sale. We’re not sure why they weren’t a part of the latest free trade deal, but at least those of us living across the pond can enjoy this great version at Christina’s.

FoMu

$$$$
Ice CreamDessert  in  Fenway
$$$$ 140 Brookline Avenue

Flavor: Banoffee Pie

OK, there’s a lot going here with this banana, caramel, dark chocolate, and graham cracker vegan ice cream. But somehow it all works together nicely, which is more than we can say for the Sonic The Hedgehog movie.

Joel Ang

Toscanini’s Ice Cream

$$$$ 159 1st St

Flavor: Kulfi

Technically, kulfi is a style of Indian ice cream that can be made with a variety of ingredients. The version at Toscanini’s is pretty cardamom-heavy, something we really enjoy. It’s also filled with pistachios and almonds, adding a nice crunch without making us resort to neon toppings.

Joel Ang

Tipping Cow

$$$$ 415 Medford St

Flavor: Earl Grey & Lemon

Sometimes, eating Earl Grey-flavored ice cream can be difficult - much like watching Elon Musk give a live presentation. But at Tipping Cow, there’s a good balance of tea and lemon, which makes it ideal for those times when you prefer to eat your Arnold Palmers.

Joel Ang

Honeycomb Creamery

$$$$
$$$$ 1702 Massachusetts Ave

Flavor: Jasmine and Sea Salt Ganache

You might have missed it, but we’ve already written about this refreshing scoop before. But we’re talking about it again, because this is a truly mind-blowing concoction. It tastes like a cold glass of jasmine tea, only in ice cream form, with little surprising bites of chocolate. You should try this as soon as possible.

Joel Ang

Chill On Park

$$$$
$$$$ 142 Park St

Flavor: Graham Central Station

If we’re being honest, we’d take Graham Central Station over Grand Central Station any day of the week. We’d also take it over s’mores - which is exactly what this ice cream tastes like - because there are no melting marshmallows involved. New Yorkers and campfire enthusiasts, please don’t hate us.

Joel Ang

The Ice Creamsmith

$$$$
$$$$ 2295 Dorchester Ave

Flavor: Coconut Pineapple

This is essentially an edible piña colada, which is something we didn’t think we needed until now. The only thing missing is the rum, though luckily for you, we’ve got an easy way to fix that.
