Are you close to Baltimore, MD? Check out these awesome, young fellas working towards growing their mobile ice cream business by transforming a truck into an ice cream truck. 

There's delicious treats in it for you whether you live in the area or not. Only two days left to pledge.

If you live in or near St. Louis, MO, then you should consider pledging toward this project. They're making some delicious-looking and socially responsible ice pops.

Do you know anyone else making local treats for our mouths?

How is your July going? There's still plenty of ice cream to be munched on during the summer in the northern hemisphere. 

Let us know if you've had some great ice cream experiences recently. Even if they weren't on Long Island.

You know... you can always look at the details for this year's event to visit any of the places we went any time you want. :)

While our yearly tour currently focuses on the fantastic homemade ice cream available on Long Island, we sure like to see what's going on with ice cream around the world. Please let us know if there are any sweet parlours or projects we should check out.

I just discovered +Garden Creamery. They currently have a Kickstarter project to get a fully-functional (that means they can make ice cream in it) dessert truck up and running. The project has 25 days to go and need quite a few more supporters to reach their goal.

Even if you don't live in San Francisco (Garden Creamery's home base), you should consider backing because next time you visit the Bay Area you'll no doubt be hankering for some good ice cream.
