Fabulous Frozen Treats to Try This Summer: More Finds from The Fancy Food Show

Have you ever looked at the ingredients on a container of ice cream? Not every container, of course, but many of them (especially the popular brands) contain calcium sulfate and mono and diglycerides to keep them from melting or to keep ice crystals from forming. Just google 'why ice cream doesn't melt' and you'll see what I mean. Well, guess what? I'm tired of it. I'm tired of the FDA approved additives, and I'm ready to pay a little extra for something better. Last month I attended The Fancy Food Show in New York City, and I was able to sample some amazing brands of ice cream and frozen novelties that I think you should know about, too. This isn't a sponsored post, it's just me sharing my thoughts with you because that's how I roll. Read on to hear about some new brands and products worth trying!

This includes all of the best boardwalk treats to try before summer ends. I realize the list could be infinite, so I've tried to narrow it down to ten of the most scrumptious goodies I could find from boardwalks along the shore. Are you ready?
