During National Ice Cream Month (July), the Oregon Dairy and Nutrition Council embarked on an effort to identify the state’s landmark ice cream shops.
The dairy council recently released the Oregon Ice Cream Trail, which includes the SAGE Center, 101 Olson Road, Boardman. Tillamook ice cream is available at the center’s store. Other Eastern Oregon shops on the trail include La Grande’s Hought’s 24 Flavors and Mal’s Diner in Vale. And, when you’re off the beaten path be sure to check out Goldie’s Ice Cream, which is open seasonally in Shaniko.
Initially, the council identified 10 shops and then decided to seek input to create the trail map. It includes 53 fan favorites from across the state — featuring all varieties of scoop and soft serve ice cream, custard, gelato and even frozen yogurt — all made in Oregon.
Before your next road trip or to celebrate National Chocolate Milkshake Day (Sept. 12), be sure to refer to the Oregon Ice Cream Trail. A trail map and information is available at www.odncouncil.org. For questions, call 503-229-5033.
