Nothing is better on a hot summer day than ice cream! Here is where Yelp suggests we cool off around the St. Cloud area.

1. Mr. Twisty - St. Cloud and Sartell

Now with two locations, in St. Cloud and Sartell. Mr. Twisty is number one on this list for a reason, it's a staple in the area. I love the two little sugar candy eyes they put on their cones. It really gives your ice cream personality!

2. Insomnia Cookies - St. Cloud

This late-night cookie shop is also known for great ice cream creations. You can even have them make you an ice cream sandwich out of the cookies! One of their newest creations is a root beer float-flavored cookie sandwich. Sounds perfect on a hot summer day.

3. Cold Stone Creamery - St. Cloud and Sartell

From waffle cones to ice cream cakes, Cold Stone has you covered in two locations in the St. Cloud area. Also, they recently added Silk dairy-free ice cream options for those of us who struggle with food allergies.

4. Jupiter Moon Ice Cream - St. Joseph

Jupiter Moon started as a mobile ice cream cart, and now has a brick-and-mortar location on Minnesota Street in St. Joseph. Only at Jupiter Moon will you find some truly unique ice cream flavors like Spicy Mango, Bluebarb Pie (blueberry rhubarb), Banana Blondie and more. It is all made on site, and they are also great about offering ice cream that caters to food allergies.
