Ice Cream in Newtown, CT - Updated May 2012 So last night, we were out with friends at Peachwave in Newtown. It's the third time we've been to Peachwave and it's always packed there. Peachwave, if you don't know it's a place to buy frozen yogurt. It's a "do it yourself" place: grab your cup, add your frozen yogurt and then your toppings. Continue down the line to the scale & then pay for the tasty concoction you've made. There's plenty of seating, but parking is a little limited. Where is Peachwave? It's located on Route 25 near the new Walgreens.
So, why all this Peachwave talk in this post? It made us think about a blog we posted early on in our blogging career (way back in June 2009): Ice Cream in Newtown, CT. The information in this post is outdated now as for one, Cold Stone Creamery is no longer in Newtown. Time to update!
In Newtown, there are 4 places you can go to for ice cream:
- Ferris Acres Creamery: Located at 144 Sugar Street (Route 302), this is located on the Ferris family's farm. Sit outside at a table or bench & watch the cows while you eat your ice cream. Ice cream is made on site and specials are available daily.
- Ice Cream Shop: Located at 51 Church Hill Road, this is the oldest ice cream shop to town. It's located next door to the Teen Center (the Garage) and is close to town. It has a large gravel parking lot & tables to sit out at. Service is always good and the ice cream is made on the premises.
- Ice Cream Heaven: Located at 10 Glen Road, Sandy Hook. Ice Cream Heaven is an ice cream parlor which offers homemade ice cream treats seven days a week, including favorites such as vanilla, strawberry and chocolate.
- Peachwave: Located at 48 South Main Street, Newtown. Frozen yogurt (some non-fat & some no sugar) and of course, the toppings. We decided to include Peachwave as it's ice cream like.
Arrive early - lines can get long. Try a different flavor every time you eat ice cream at one of these places. Say hello to everyone from town that you see. Ice cream in Newtown, CT is fun!
