MMMMMMM, Ice Cream. It's the delicious treat that brings families together, enjoyed by young and old alike. But how well do you know your ice cream?

Or I should ask, "How well do you know your local ice cream shops?"

I Spy My Favorite Ice Cream Shop

Pictured below are ice cream treats being enjoyed at eight of the Flint area's favorite local stops for ice cream. But can you tell what those shops are based on the limited background that is provided?

  • Some of them are known for their ridiculously huge portions - as in "you call that a Single Jr. Cone?"
  • Most are where local sports teams gather after a game to celebrate a win or just as often to console players (and coaches and parents) who fell a little short and had to take an 'L.'
  • And there's even one that is famous for giving away free cones to people who have specific names, announcing a different name on its marquis each day.
