There is nothing better than going out for ice cream on a hot summer day…especially when you’ve found a new shop! In my previous blog featuring Hobb’s Tavern & Brewing Company, I referenced a new ice cream place in Tamworth: Eldridge Family Sugar House & Ice Cream Shoppe. I couldn’t resist visiting and trying their maple soft serve!
Prior to their ice cream shop, the family-owned Eldridge Family Sugar House had a sap house and was making maple syrup for several years. I spend a lot of time in the Ossipee Lake area in the summer, and when I noticed this building earlier this year, I was thrilled. It is right off of Route 16, which makes it easily accessible.
Their maple soft serve is delectable and melts in your mouth. The maple flavoring is just the right amount of maple. If you’re looking to add a chocolate flavor to the mix, you can order a maple/chocolate twist. They also have Gifford’s hard serve, which is always tasty, but it’s hard to beat that maple!
While you can order straight from their counter outside, there is also a small store inside the building, offering local products, as well as their delicious maple products. Outside, there are plenty of tables to enjoy your ice cream.
Looking for a tasty treat while staying in the area or driving through? Eldridge Family Sugar House & Ice Cream Shoppe will hit the spot!
