The Best Ice Cream Ever: The Juice Bar

This review could be written in five words. The best ice cream ever. However, I will add some more detail to entice you a bit more.

The Juice Bar is the only scoop shop in Nantucket, Massachusetts that sells homemade ice cream and frozen yogurt. It is located on Broad Street, right near the Steamship Wharf, where the ferry dock is located. However, it is not just any ice cream shop; the word “delicious” does not do enough justice to the thick, creamy, and scrumptious ice cream that they serve.

I grew up going to Nantucket every summer, and going to The Juice Bar was definitely a highlight. It was a ritual for my family and I to wait in the long line out the door (if not down the street) during the summer. The sweet smell of the homemade waffle cones wafting out of the store lured us in each time. There is a large sign that displays all of the flavors each day (there are several flavors that are prepared fresh daily). My favorite flavors include chocolate chip cookie dough, peanut butter cup, coffee heath bar, blackberry, chocolate peanut butter cookie-dough, and mint chocolate chip. The coffee heath bar is definitely one of the Juice Bar’s most popular flavors. It is a low fat ice cream, but is unique because it does not taste like the typical Turkey Hill or Healthy Choice product that lacks the rich and smooth quality that the coffee heath bar flavor contains. Additionally, the blackberry ice cream is perfect for those who prefer a fruitier flavor. The blackberries are handpicked from local Nantucket farms and the fresh ingredients are apparent in just one single bite. The daily flavors are also mouthwatering and creative. Some examples have been Almond Joy, caramel cookie crunch, and peppermint stick.

I also cannot forget to discuss the homemade hot fudge. There is no doubt that it is the richest and most delicious hot fudge I have ever tasted. It is the perfect, indulgent treat that pairs perfectly with any ice cream. Just a drizzle will enhance the flavors and leave you in a dreamy and wondrous state.

One last thing. For those of you who are not huge fans of ice cream, their fresh squeezed juices and smoothies should not be missed. My personal favorite is the watermelon juice that is squeezed right in front of you. I do not know how they do it, but I promise that they use the sweetest watermelons to ever exist. It is the perfect refreshment on a hot, summer day.

Trust me, attending The Juice Bar will be the best ice cream experience you will ever have. It is a must to add to your itinerary next time you are in Nantucket!
