Philadelphia has a long history of having some of the best ice cream. Bassetts, which has been around since 1861, did not disappoint.

Bassett's Ice Cream in the Reading Terminal Market is the only place where I order rum raisin ice cream. It is the absolute best!

Love this place. Best ice cream around. I never walk past without getting some. As good as it tastes it tastes even better when standing in The Reading Terminal Market for some reason.

Ok - I dare anyone to say this isn't the best ice cream on earth. I recommend the Vanilla Fudge on a Sugar Cone.

This place is fabulous. I take out of town guests here to knock their socks off. The line is usually long, but moves fast. Worth stopping in.

not quite hagen daz but it's really good ice cream - I like that you can get any flavor milkshake and they sell ice-cream already to go in little single service size if you don't want it on a cone

They have the best vanilla fudge and butterscotch vanilla ice cream. They're the only two flavors I eat but I'm sure the other flavors are just as fabulous!

My favorite ice cream in Philly. Cinnamon, coffee, Gadzooks with chunks of chocolate and swirls of Carmel. Cup, cone, waffle bowl or take it home using a bag of dry ice, lasts 4 hours!
