Soft Serve Creation

“Soft serve is really just melted ice cream,” said Smithsonian Magazine. “In fact, one of soft serve’s originators, Tom Carvel, hit on the idea when he had to sell melting ice cream out of his broken-down shipping truck.”

Alabama Makes the List

If you are ever in the Montgomery, Alabama area be sure to stop by Nancy’s Italian Ice Shop. It ranked #11 on the Cheapism best soft serve list.

They recommend to “try the "Fancy Nancy," an Italian ice/soft serve combo, on your first visit. You'll pick a sweet and fruity Italian ice flavor, which is then paired with vanilla soft serve for a combination of textures and flavors that ends up tasting like an out-of-this-world float.”
