Some use Groundhog Day to mark when we can start looking forward to warmer weather. I prefer to use ice cream season!
There are over 25 seasonal creamy whips and ice cream shops in Cincinnati! We hunted down all we could find, listed them alphabetically, included their opening days, and let you know how to find them!
Only one question remains… Which ones will you try this year?
Here’s our list of Seasonal Creamy Whips in Cincinnati (includes their opening days!)
