The next time you have a craving for soft serve ice cream think of Donnelly's soft Ice Cream, there is a catch it's in Saranac Lake NY. about 2.5 hours from Utica. People say it's the best soft ice cream around.

Donnelly's has been opened since 1953 and they stick with what made the stand great. They offer one flavor of soft serve that is always twisted with vanilla. Take the flavor of the day recently was Red Raspberry of course twisted with vanilla.

Donnelly's says to pick a size, the flavor has already been decided for you by the flavor or the day. The ice cream is made by Crystal Spring Dairy but the star of the ice cream stand is the machine. A traditional twist looks like a pine tree when it's completed, with this machine the cone looks like a cylindrical rounded, whipped version.

Don't want a cone now? After dinner ice cream and don't want to go out then either? Donnelly has quarts and points in the freezer near the exit. All the favorites that you can take home and enjoy later.
