Around here, Whitey's is a favorite. But apparently, it's world-renowned as well.

The Daily Meal recently ranked ice cream shops from around the globe and named Whitey's #17 out of 50. The site mainly praised Whitey's for its innovative flavor list.

We have to agree with this description of our beloved local chain.Their flavors are delicious, their service is top-notch, and the fact that you can buy a pint whenever you want at Hyvee is a definite plus, too.

Salt & Straw in Portland, Oregon grabbed the top spot on the site's list, but we all know Whitey's is #1 in our hearts.
