Milkcraft in Fairfield, CT
Inspired by ice cream from Capri, Italy— Milkcraft freezes its ice cream with food grade liquid nitrogen to produce the smoothest ice cream possible and places each scoop in giant, caramelized waffle cones made from scratch.
“Milkcraft is by far one of the best places to go in CT for an extravagant treat. Their ice cream is like nothing I’ve ever had before. The flavors are made using nitrogen to yield a super smooth and creamy texture. They serve it to you in a bubble cone, or in a warm donut. My favorite flavors are cookie butter and red velvet cake!” - Best East Coast Eats
