Jersey'sBest.com just released their list of "12 Must-Visit Ice Cream Institutions In NJ" and two local and longtime shops made the list! Here is what they had to say:
A Shore Thing
Ice cream Down the Shore has an especially Jersey feel to it. In some Shore towns, it may look and feel as if you should be walking around with a beer go-cup or koozie. Stone Harbor looks like a Shore town you ought to be walking around while eating an ice cream cone, and if you are doing just that, it is likely you stopped in at Springer’s. Open since the days of Prohibition, it is fortunate for generations of customers that eating its ice cream has never been legally prohibited. Springer’s has earned the description of a “beloved institution” not just because of longevity but because it has been a destination, even a daily pilgrimage site, during beach vacations. With over 50 flavors in the rotation, one can see why it gets daily visits.
Technically, it is frozen custard, not ice cream, but it has a place in this article and the pantheon of frozen treats in our state. The addition of egg yolks to the original recipe to slow down the melting process was developed specifically for summer at the ocean. Whether it is from any of the outlets containing the Kohr’s name, all offshoots of the same family business founded over 100 years ago, is there a more photographed ice cream cone with the backdrop of a boardwalk or beach than the vanilla-orange twist?
