“It was so much fun to work at the Harbour Creamery,” said junior Gracie Burnim. “You’re with kids and ice cream, so it’s always happy.”

Summer is right around the corner and ice cream stores have begun to open up. The Harbour Creamery, in downtown Newburyport, opened up last summer and has been a hot spot for most local visitors.

The shop is located on Pleasant street, alongside many other popular downtown food places; including Angies and Dos Amigos. It’s in the center of downtown, which may be the reason why it has attracted so many customers.

The store offers 24 flavors of ice cream ranging, from classics, like Coffee and Vanilla Bean, to one-of-a-kinds, like Candy Cane and Riptide. Along with ice cream, they sold chocolates and candy. The Triton Voice visited the shop and tried some of their ice cream for the first time. Trying Mint Chocolate Chip and Mocha Crunch both were pleasantly surprising from the rich taste and the uniqueness of flavor.

In comparison to the Harbour Creamery, many ice cream shops, like Hodgies, seem to be very different. The price of an ice cream at the Creamery is far different from one at Hodgies. A small ice cream sold at the Creamery costs around $4.50, compared to a small ice cream sold at Hodgies costs $4.25. The size of a small at the Creamery is around 2 scoops compared to one at at Hodgies is around 4 scoops. The price may be similar, but the size is fairly different so you’re getting more for your money at Hodgies.

The Harbour Creamery may be new and a must try, but many people will always have their favorite ice cream shops, along with their favorite ice cream flavors.
