I swear I gained 15 pounds just reading this book...but don't let that dissuade you from this sweet summer reading.

Every summer I look forward to my two most favorite activities: Ice cream and road trips! My sister just gave me this book for my birthday and I could not be more thrilled! Baskin Robbins be darned!!! Not only does it list the BEST independent ice cream spots in my home town of New York City (Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory, Ronnybrook, Il Laboratario del Gelato...mmmmmmmmm gelato!!!), I'm REALLY looking forward to trying Shain's of Maine when my family heads to the shore next month. I swear I gained 15 pounds just reading this book...but don't let that dissuade you from this sweet summer reading. If you're an ice cream connoisseur like me, or if you're looking to break free from the freezer-burnt fare of the franchise ice cream dumps (or even teach your kids about REAL ice cream), you NEED East Coast Scoops. I just hope they come out with a West Coast version before I drive to California in the fall!!!

I love having a happy belly and "East Coast Scoops" sure tickled my tummy! Each entry is imformative and unique. My belly concurs with Ms. Steintrager's assesment of Christina's in Cambridge. I was lucky enough to sample their fares twice during a cold and snowy winter trip (that should tell you something)! A trip to New York is in my future and I can't wait to try the lychee ice cream at the China Town Ice Cream factory, the Meyer lemon at Otto Enoteca Pizzeria, Lola's mint chocolate lace at Ronnybrook Farm Dairy, the concrete jungle at the Shake Shack, and the vanilla chocolate chunk at the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory - to start with. I guess I better plan a longer trip and lots of walking! Please send Ms. Steintrager down to the deep South next. We could use a Deep South Scoops!

This is an excellent travel/ food book- A great gift for anyone traveling in the Northeast.

Guides like this can often give too little detail or too much, but in this book, the author gives the perfect amount of information about every location. Each ice cream parlor's individual style, history and unique offerings are expressed succinctly, but so well that you feel you really know the place.

The descriptions of the ice cream flavors make you want to try every one mentioned (except maybe the horseradish). You can tell the author has personally visited and sampled the wares and her descriptions make it easy for you to decide if it is a place you would enjoy.

I am planning a trip North in two weeks and I am definitely visiting several of the places mentioned. The book is well-organized and well-written. Location, hours, directions, etc. are at the top of each page. There are interesting bits of ice cream trivia interspersed.

Great choice for food and travel lovers!
