We All Scream for Fairhaven Ice Cream

With the summer heat in full blaze, it’s time to hit the ice cream shops. There’s nothing better than an August day spent lounging on the grass at Fairhaven Village Green, cone in-hand. Luckily, Fairhaven offers three top-notch options for ice cream: Edaleen Dairy, Acme Ice Cream (where you can also pick up a famous Rocket donut), and Sirena Gelato. Whether you’re a fan of creamy or fruity, we made the ultimate sacrifice and tried them all.

EDALEEN DAIRY

FRUITY—PASSIONFRUIT & GUAVA
I’ve tasted this combo in juice and sorbet before, but in ice cream? The combination of dairy and these two unique fruity flavors creates a deliciously sweet and tangy result. EM

CHOCOLATEY—ALMOND COFFEE FUDGE
If you’re a chocolate fan, but you’re looking for a spin on the flavor, this scoop delivers all the chocolate taste with notes of coffee and bits of almond for an extra crunch. ES

CLASSIC—MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP
This is my long-time favorite flavor, and Edaleen’s rendition did not disappoint. With creamy mint ice cream and crunchy chocolate chips, this scoop reminded me of childhood summers. LM

SOMETHING NEW—COTTON CANDY
Berry sweet with a melt-in-your-mouth consistency, this flavor brings back memories of summer fairgrounds. The crunchy sugar confetti mixed in is a fun surprise. KP

ACME ICE CREAM

FRUITY—BLUEBERRY
This ice cream from Acme tastes like popping a handful of berries in your mouth, but even more refreshing. It has a perfect creamy texture with pieces of blueberry throughout. ES

CHOCOLATEY—FUDGE BROWNIE
This ice cream perfectly mimics its chocolatey namesake. The combination of chewy brownie bits and walnut morsels compliments the ooey-gooey fudge swirl base. KP

CLASSIC—VANILLA BEAN
With a scoop that fills the cone all the way down, a bite of this classic flavor blends rich cream with flecks of vanilla. EM

SOMETHING NEW—AMARETTO
I love amaretto creamer for my coffee, so I had to try this ice cream. I was pleasantly surprised by the thick almond-flavored ice cream with slivers of almonds in each bite. LM

SIRENA GELATO

FRUITY—MANGO
My favorite scoop of the day was this sunshine-yellow-colored gelato. Light and airy, this treat was the nearly-literal cherry on top. LM

CHOCOLATEY—BLACK COCOA
This intensely rich, bittersweet scoop certainly lives up to its name, reminding me of a decadent piece of chocolate tart. I’d recommend finding another chocolate-loving friend to share this generous scoop. EM

CLASSIC—ROCOCO COFFEE
The bits of coffee grounds and creamy base are a great sweet and bitter combination. It might be better than a real cup o’ joe. KP

SOMETHING NEW—THAI COCONUT
After living in Thailand, I have a soft spot for anything Thai-inspired. This coconut gelato is perfect for summer. With its soft texture and fresh flavor, you’ll be transported to a tropical wonderland. ES
