Ben & Jerry’s Closes; Here Are Your Local Answers
When I lived in Spokane, Washington-- Ben & Jerry's became a real vice of mine. Having the ice cream shop in downtown--a quick walk from summer classes on campus or work at my former radio station--was extremely dangerous. That's saying something, coming from a guy that really doesn't like ice cream all that much.
I haven't had Ben & Jerry's in some time-- well over four years to be exact, however I have found a few ice cream vices that I like to visit here in the Treasure Valley when the temperatures call for it.

While the news of the closing franchise is sad, the good news is that there are plenty of LOCAL spots right here in t
The STIL, or The "sweetest things in life" is a GREAT little spot that isn't so little anymore in BoDo. Locally owned and operated, The STIL seems to always have a line out the door and serves all locally made ice creams including alcohol infused and vegan options.
There's just something about the charm of our own North End here in Boise--Goody's is a huge part of that and their ice cream treats are ALWAYS worthy of your time.

A staple of our city, Fanci Freeze and their milkshakes or ice cream options is ALWAYS home run.
