I can't agree more with Time Out New York's "Must Try" ice cream places to hit up before summer ends. In fact, they even chose my favorite flavors at each place. Although I love Blue Marble, Griff's, Jacques Torres, and the Van Leeuwen truck... my favorite ice cream of the summer is the salted caramel pretzel at the Greene Ice Cream outside of The General Greene in Fort Greene, Brooklyn.

It's a mere $2.00... and your life will never be the same.
