When I first decided to blog about ice cream shops, my friend Ashley suggested Howdy Homemade Ice Cream. She visited their Salt Lake location and knew it needed to be on my list. Since my list was long, I put off the visit while I was covering other ice cream shops. But when I was asked to come on Fox 13 The Place and talk about my five favorite ice cream spots in Utah and I knew I needed to see if Howdy Homemade Ice Cream would make that list.
The bio on @howdyslc’s feed states “We’re a homemade ice cream shop that empowers heroes with special needs to succeed.” You can feel how true this statement is when you walk into the shop. The employees are friendly, happy, and ready to take your order. And my favorite part was seeing how willing they were to help each other. The atmosphere in the shop even from the customers was a happy vibe. Everyone seemed to being enjoying their time together.
Of course, the most important part is always how the ice cream tastes. It was great. Have I ever mentioned I’m a huge waffle cone lover? Well, I am. So I got a waffle cone with a strawberry ice cream. I tried a few other flavors, but I’m terrible and forgot to take pictures and remember what they all were, so I’m definitely headed back in December to try all the flavors!
As I mentioned previously, I made sure to get to Howdy Homemade Ice Cream because I wanted to include it on my list of my top five favorite ice cream spots in Utah. Being on the Fox 13 The Place was really fun, but terrifying. I stressed about it for days worried I wouldn’t be able to remember anything about ice cream, or I would say “like” 100 times! The good news is that it turned out great. If you haven’t caught the spot already, here’s the link.
One of my new goals is the travel out of Utah and find the most delicious ice cream shops across the country. My first stop is an easy one, Chicago. I’m headed there to spend the holiday with my family and will be making a few visits to places people have recommended. So tell me, what state should I visit next, and what are the top ice cream places there?
