I am a self-confessed homemade ice cream lover and after we left the house of an upcoming listing in Fridley yesterday I remembered hearing about a shop in Fridley we had never visited. So… I looked it up and was delighted to learn we were only about 5 minutes away from ‘Grandpa’s Ice Cream‘! Loved the kid size bench out front next to the adult bench!

Just so you know, I don’t love just any ice cream… but Grandpa’s Ice Cream was fabulous! Many unique flavors and more with nuts (I happen to be a nut lover) than most shops. I had Salty Almond and John had Salty Caramel… both with exceptional flavor!

Now that we have been there, I have to ask myself… “what took us so long?”  This absolutely makes my list of favorite Twin Cities homemade ice cream shops!
