Every summer in Florida, I always think to myself: Can it get any hotter? And every year, yes, it gets hotter. That's why us Floridians need help cooling down. Thankfully, Tampa has a great variety of icy cold treats for us:
This place has the most amazing homemade ice cream and they have fun flavors like Eurotrash, Matt's Fatty Rolls and Grandma's Oreo. They rotate their flavors regularly and every flavor we have tried so far has been excellent. Whenever we're in a mood for some ice cream, this is definitely our go-to spot. Bonus points for being super pet friendly!

2 | Icesmile
Icesmile is popular for their rolled ice cream, which apparently originated in Thailand. They are always packed with a line almost out the door, but you won't be waiting long as their service is super speedy. They have a fun decor of Post-its all over the walls with messages from their customers. I love that they have my favorite green tea flavor and use the Japanese koala snack as their main topping.

They serve gourmet ice pops that are all natural and all their ingredients are non-GMO. They use fresh fruits, fresh herbs and evaporated can juice. There are so many interesting
