Chill-N Nitrogen Ice Cream 355 × 230

If you're looking for entertainment to go along with your ice cream, Chill-N Nitrogen Ice Cream is the place for you. This unique ice cream shop combines science with food to create some of the best ice cream on the entire Atlantic Coast.

There won't be any ice cream sitting in buckets waiting for you to order it at this shop. Instead, it is made right in front of you after you order, so you can see the nitrogen turn raw ingredients into ice cream before your very eyes! The Nutella, cake batter, and biscotti are favorites but don't forget to add some wilder toppings like Pop-Tart, Butterfinger, or honey to make the perfect creation.

Wilton Creamery

Over 30 flavors of ice cream and more than 50 different toppings await you at Wilton Creamery, where the ice cream is handmade every day. Each week, a small batch of a new flavor is made, which if proven popular among visitors could become another permanent flavor, so be sure to give the flavor of the week a try and let them know your vote.

What is nice about Wilton Creamery is that there are plenty of vegan and non-dairy dessert options as well, so everyone can get a treat they can enjoy.

Notorious Creamery

Owned by Grammy-nominated rap artist Troy Lanez, Notorious Creamery offers up some of the creamiest and most flavorful ice cream in the city. Although it does not have as many flavors as some of the other ice cream spots on this list, the flavors it does have are amazing, and in fact, visitors have said Notorious Creamery has the best vanilla ice cream they've ever tried.

Birthday cake, coffee, pistachio, and chocolate are other flavors available, but for $12, the shop will make you a custom concoction that will make everyone on your social media pages jealous!

Localicious Caribbean Ice Cream

Flavors of Jamaica come through in the homemade dairy and vegan old-fashioned ice cream of Localicious Caribbean Ice Cream. With treats like rum raisin ice cream, Dragon Stout ice cream, grapenut ice cream, and watermelon ice cream, the flavors are a bit more grown-up than with other ice cream parlors.

However, that doesn't mean kids won't like this ice cream because there are also flavors like cotton candy and mango to satisfy their taste buds as well.

Yo Mama's Ice Cream & Pops Corn

Despite the funny name, this place is all business, especially when it comes to handmade, gourmet ice cream. There are so many toppings that you could never possibly try them all, but it never hurts to give it a shot!

Sprinkles, popcorn, chocolate chips, cookies, fruit, and candy can all be combined with the sweetest ice cream in town to create the perfect ice cream sundae. You can also get ice cream tacos or scoops in a waffle cone.

Ice cream and Florida go together perfectly and these five spots in Fort Lauderdale will more than satisfy your sweet tooth. However, if you need even more options for delicious desserts in town, just stop by Pines Lincoln for additional tasty recommendations.
