There are a bunch of good places to get ice cream in Ocean City. There are even a lot of really good places. But if you were to play a word association game with your friends out on your Wesley Ave deck, and the prompt was “ice cream,” 10 out of 10 times their immediate reaction would be to yell “Kohr Bros.” This soft-serve spot with a few locations on the boardwalk has been around longer than most people on the boardwalk have been alive, and is known for its twists. In addition to the classic vanilla/chocolate combo, they have options like orange sherbet/vanilla, mint/chocolate, and peanut butter/chocolate. You can get your custard plain or dipped in sprinkles, and it’s piled so high you’ll have to take a few laps around the boardwalk rides next door before you head home.
