We’re not just screaming, we’re hooting and hollering for some of the South’s best new artisan ice creams. Our five favorite pints pack a distinctly Southern flavor punch.

Roots, Charleston, SC
Matt Frye uses local milk and fresh produce to churn out peak-of-season varieties such as Sweet Pea sorbet (shown) and Honeysuckle ice cream.

High Road Craft Ice Cream, Atlanta, GA
Classic cocktails inspire flavors such as the sweetly spirited Bourbon Burnt Sugar (shown), the peach-scented Bellini, and the citrusy Old Fashioned.

Sinplicity, Falls Church, VA
These deliciously dense, gelato-style treats pack layers of velvety complexity: Watermelon Sorbet (shown), made with Prosecco and lime juice.

The Parlour, Durham, NC
Made with local fruits and veggies, these scoops are based on old Southern cookbook recipes. Try the Blueberry Buttermilk (shown) or Sweet Potato.

Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, Nashville, TN
The cocoa powder in each spoonful of Askinosie Dark Milk Chocolate (shown) is sharp and fruity, blending with the rich buttercream for a voluptuous finish.
