Over the last year a few very unique spots have opened up all featuring delicious, ice cold treats of various shapes and sizes. We scouted out a few spots from all over town and got the low down on what to try during the dog days of summer.
Since May 1 of this year, San Antonio north sides Iggy’s Italian Ice combines Italian ice and gelato in a unique way. The company itself is a family-owned organization that franchises all over, the local store is owned by the original family and along with awesome dessert, is also happy to help organize fundraisers for various needs. They pride themselves on over 130 million flavor combinations of “gelati” their word for the combination of gelato and Italian ice — all made in house. You can combine any of their flavors in any order that you'd like, up to three flavors for a small cup and five in a large. Pick your cup size and just write it down directly on the side in order of how you want it stacked and they'll do it up for you. Store manager Kensi recommends trying the combinations listed on the chalkboard menu, and says that the strawberry cheesecake, Dreamsicle, and creamy coffee are the most popular menu items. She also adds that all of their Italian ice flavors are gluten- and lactose-free with the exception of salted caramel, so there is something for everyone at Iggys. I let Kensi pick a series of flavors she enjoys and ended up with a cup layered with a fine, fresh fruit forward strawberry ice on top, super creamy, perfectly sweetened vanilla ice cream in the center, and a refreshingly fruity mango ice on the bottom.Iggy’s is open daily; noon-10pm Mon-Thu, noon-11pm Friday and Saturday, and noon-7pm Sunday.
