I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream…

The first Ice Cream for America advertisement appeared in the New York Gazette on May 12 1777. Since then the manufacture of ice cream has evolved to now being easily accessible in prepackaged containers sold out through supermarkets and restaurants. However there are few gems that still provide the ice cream shop and soda fountain prefered back in the days and these shops continue to bring past and new generation fans of ice cream.

Here in Savannah we have a great example of this original ice cream parlor, Leopold’s Ice Cream. Founded in 1919 by three brothers.  Setting foot inside takes you back in time when ice cream was only available in an ice cream parlor and not a store.

Most of it’s decor dating back to the 1935 ice cream parlor era. Such as the original soda fountain, the bar back and milkshake dispenser. Because this parlor is owned by the famous producer Stratton Leopold you can expect to see autographed props and posters to give this parlor it’s very own Hollywood feel.

All their ice cream is made on the premise and they only use the best all natural ingredients avoiding artificial flavours or dyes. Flavours ranging from the traditional Vanilla to seasonal wonders such as Japanese Cherry Blossom. Judging by the line that occasionally forms to enter the premises one can only imagine how great their ice cream must be. It is definitely a must.
