A new list from Thrillist.com covers one of life's essentials: the best ice cream in every state. And Alabama's best is walking distance from my house. (And if I'd walk there, I could feel a lot less guilty about the calories).
Here's what Thrillist had to say about this great Mobile tradition:
This Mobile staple has been in the capable hands of Cammie Wayne since 1998, though the location's been giving Alabamans their dairy fix since 1956 (fun fact: Wayne worked in the shop in her teens). Since she started running the place the legion of admirers has only increased, thanks to 47 rotating flavors like the can’t-miss Creole praline and the red velvet cake (in which each batch is blended with... an entire damn red velvet cake. If you’re extra hungry, the Meal in One (a five-scoop malted milkshake) still clocks in at less than five bucks. -- Matt Lynch, deputy features editor
