YOUR PICKS

1) Orleagian Snowballs

You say, “Even though snowballs originated in Baltimore, Orleagian Snowballs has perfected the process. They are the best frozen treat in Atlanta.” And “Perfect for a hot summer day. Cold and refreshing.”

2) Rita’s

3) King of Pops

4) Morelli’s Ice Cream

5) Sheridan’s Frozen Custard

OUR PICKS

1) Morelli’s Gourmet Ice Cream

Food and beverage writer Bob Townsend saysm “Morelli’s in Ormewood Park is famous for crazy-cool homemade ice cream, like bacon brittle, coconut jalapeno, rosemary olive oil and sweet corn. Lately, though, Kevin Gillespie of Woodfire Grill has upped the wow factor, stopping by once a week to create small batches of fun flavors. Amaretto popcorn, fried pie and smoked caramel-infused chocolate with marshmallow swirl are among the recent ‘Top Chef’ hits.”

Happily, all of the following choices are within an approximately one square mile radius:
(1) Orleagian Sno-Ball truck at Ponce and Moreland (try one of the berry flavors with condensed milk added, yum!);
(2) King of Pops cart at North and N. Highland (honeydew melon and lime);
(3) Paolo’s Gelato – sublime plum; baked apple; wonderful “flower” flavors;
(4) Zesto’s Nut Brown Crown; and
(5) Morelli’s.

Yoforia!! The yummiest frozen yogurt on the planet. It is so addicting, we will drive 15 minutes out of our way (past Sheridan’s in Tucker, past a Rita’s, past several Bruster’s) for it @ least once a week.

…if you are going to play at least get the recommendation right – as others have pointed out, and as you tried to, the F.O. at the Varsity is great, but it stands for FROSTED orange, not frozen orange…
