2023 Ice Cream

Editors’ Choice

Holy Cow Ice Cream Cafe, Peabody

Owner Mike Schifino intended to become a landlord, but after buying a property that housed a defunct ice cream shop, his career took a very sweet turn. Now his decadent 16 percent butterfat recipes have won a bevy of awards—including a Flavor of the Year nod from the North American Ice Cream Association for “Ritzy AF,” a salted butter cracker ice cream base loaded with house-made Ritz Cracker toffee bark. While the Holy Cow crew bakes a lot of the mix-ins in house, collabs with area legends like the North End’s Bova’s Bakery and Night Shift Brewing in Everett keep the flavors fresh and exciting. 86 Andover St., Peabody, 978-587-2255,
