Dewar's is a 101 year old company located on the corner of California and Eye Streets in Bakersfield, California. There's also another location on Hageman and Coffee Roads in the northern part of town. Not only do they make delicious ice cream, but many hand-made candies too. I'm particularly fond of the caramel chews. Letty says they make the best pink peppermint and chocolate chip ice cream she's ever had...
...except for the version she made at home (see picture above).
Thrifty Ice Cream is available at most Rite Aid stores along the West Coast. Many a California adult remembers as a kid visiting Thrifty Drug Stores (now Rite Aid) and buy ice cream cones for a nickel a scoop. Now around a dollar, it's still suprisingly good for a low priced ice cream. This basic frozen treat has a lot of fans.
Try some of these great ice cream treats next time you're in the neighborhood. Have an ice cream place you think is the best? Tell us in the comments below.
