I was not surprised to read the news that New York Senators Gillibrand and Schumer made a stop at Donnelly’s ice cream stand while visiting the Adirondacks last week. After all, in addition to every member of the Reed family and our pets; Zeek, Puz, and Ziggy, famous people such as Tom Cruise, Hillary Clinton, Gary Trudeau, Jane Pauley, and Merriweather Post know the secret. The secret is this: the absolute best soft ice cream in the world is served from this little 8 x 8 white building in the middle of an Adirondack field.
Located on State Route 86 just outside of Saranac Lake, New York, Donnelly’s Ice Cream has been a family favorite for 25 years. The only question you have to answer is “What size?” because there is only one choice on tap. Each day throughout the summer, Donnelly’s offers a different flavor ice cream twisted with vanilla.
Donnelly’s ice cream is a special treat for all creatures; those using a spoon or not. Ziggy suggests you put Donnelly’s ice cream stand on your list of things to try in the Adirondacks.
