Best Ice Cream and Frozen Yogurt Shops in the Bronx, NY
The month of June marks National Dairy Month. The state of New York is home to more than 620,000 dairy cows, and we want to support them by consuming delicious dairy products. Some of our favorite dairy foods are ice cream and frozen yogurt. Sure, you can always pick up a carton of Edy’s the next time you visit the grocery store, but it is so much more fun to visit an ice cream or fro-yo shop with your friends and family. And there is no shortage of shops right here in the Bronx! Here are a few of our favorites:
