What is Dallas’ Best Ice Cream Shop?

Vote Now to Crown the City's Cool Treat Champ — and Get the Chance to Win a Year's Supply of Ice Cream for Free

BY Virginia Reynolds and Megan Ziots // 08.02.19

It’s August, and the sweltering summer is in full swing in Dallas. That can only mean one thing – time to get some ice cream.

The city has its fair share of high-quality craft creameries, but what it is the No. 1 ice cream shop in Dallas?

You get to decide by voting for your rightful champ in PaperCity‘s Best Ice Cream Shop Challenge. The ice cream place that scoops up the most votes will take home some serious North Texas bragging rights, but you get a chance to win big too.

One voter will be randomly selected to win free ice cream for a year from the ice cream champion. That’s a lot of cones. Or cups. Or however you eat your ice cream.

You can vote once per day. And the more times you vote, the more chances you have to win.

Cauldron Ice Cream

This hotspot that boasts the OG Puffle cone is an ice cream force to be reckoned with. Its liquid nitrogen crafted cream is also extra smooth, sweet, and picture perfect.
