What are some of your favorite ice cream parlors in this area? We are big fans of O’Malley’s Ice Cream Pub in Media.

Thanks, Sara-Ann.

Here are some creamy and dreamy favorites.

Petrucci’s two locations (King of Prussia and Phoenixville) are regular Alan Family stops. On a recent visit, my son went apoplectic over his dish of Cinnamon Sticky Bun ice cream, while the rest of us followed happily in our Moose Tracks. When I mentioned to our smiling server how nice she was to customers, she said, “How can I not be nice? I get to work with ice cream all day!” 670 N. Henderson Ave., King of Prussia, (610) 354-0205; 472 Nutt Road, Phoenixville, (610) 933-9390; petruccisicecream.com.

Forget 31 flavors. At Handel’s, there are scores of yummy ice creams. Just follow the customer line that wraps around this popular spot in Berwyn. The vast selection ranges from the usual suspects (chocolate and butter pecan) to the extreme (graham cracker, banana cream pie and “Twixter”).

Wayne certainly has a sweet tooth, what with all its tempting bakeries and ice cream stores. One notable parlor is Gumdrops & Sprinkles, offering scrumptious homemade ice creams. The décor is a mélange of razzle-dazzling colors, right on down to the requisite background freezer hum. G&S also has friendly servers and is a fun place for kiddie parties. 155 E. Lancaster Ave., Wayne; (610) 254-8409, gumdropsandsprinkles.com.
