Wired screams for ice cream: where is the best place for a “cool” treat?
September 19, 2017
Omaha can seem pretty dull every so often, but one thing that I always look forward to is going to some of the ice cream locations all throughout the city. Frequently visited places are Ted & Wally’s Premium Homemade Ice Cream, Coneflower Creamery, and eCreamery. I sampled each place’s chocolate ice cream and recorded my thoughts on them.
Ted & Wally’s
Located in downtown Omaha near the Old Market, Ted & Wally’s have become famous for their traditional homemade ice cream. I sampled their dutch chocolate flavor. The first thing I noticed about it was how thick it was. It was somewhat of a chore to get a scoop on my spoon. It also had an icy taste to it, comparable to a fudgesicle. It was sweet, I could definitely taste the chocolate in it.
The next place I went to was Coneflower Creamery, located in the Blackstone district in downtown Omaha. It’s a newer ice cream place, but is also one that is growing in popularity with every passing day. When I walked through the front door, the smell of the freshly made waffle cones hit me; it’s not a bad scent to say the least. I sampled their chocolate flavor; it was extremely smooth and creamy. It melted in my mouth, and was the perfect mix of sweet with a slight hint of salty. The consistency was also great, it wasn’t not too thick nor too thin.
My last stop was at eCreamery, located in the Dundee division of Omaha, and it did not disappoint. I sampled the chocolate flavor there as well, and it tasted like a thicker version of chocolate mousse. It wasn’t too thick nor thin, this one also melted in my mouth. The chocolate flavoring was also sweet but not too overpowering.
Overall, each ice cream location was great in all aspects, whether it be their products, customer service, or anything in between. If I had to choose my favorite based off of the ice cream itself, I’d have to go with Coneflower Creamery. They have this ice cream thing down. Each place is unique and different in its own way, but they all have one thing in common; beyond amazing ice cream.
