New England Roadtrip, July 12, part 3: Dr. Mike's

It's only fitting to say farewell to New England with ice cream, so we detoured to Bethel, Connecticut for a stop at Dr. Mike's. Dr. Mike's does small batches of very rich ice cream, operating out of a store the size of a walk-in closet in the back of this building:

Lori ordered the caramel toffee swirl. I asked her just now what she remembered of it, and she moaned at the memory. "It had a very rich vanilla base flavor with caramel and toffee accents. It was just a very rich, dense creamy ice cream."
I ordered the strawberry ice cream, and it was amazingly good, with a broad, intense, rich flavor. This might well be the best strawberry ice cream I've ever had.
These cones were both "small" cones. A "small" is apparently about the size of a softball.

Dr. Mike's was one of the great ice cream delights of our trip, and we would recommend it enthusiastically.
