By Jen Anderson, Macaroni Kid West Chester // Macaroni Kid Kennett Square June 4, 2022

We've rounded up a guide to ice cream and cold treats in Chester County. It'd been a tough job to research, but we'd do anything for you (and for ice cream).  We like to think of it this list as....a dessert to-do list. Enjoy working your way through it and we hope you get to visit all of these local spots. Let us know if we need to add any other local gems to it.
