With summer heat fully here, we thought the time was right to share some of the favorite ice cream orders submitted by LebTown readers across the county.

Last month, we asked LebTown readers to send us their favorite Lebanon County ice cream orders.

Cherry malt at Twin Kiss? Chocolate-dipped cone at Dairy Queen? The “simple” vanilla cup at Patches (flavored with Madagascar vanilla and sugared egg yolk)? Or maybe that eponymous classic – a Jigger in Mt. Gretna?

Ice cream pie from Rainbow Snow and Ice Cream

Great for a family, the ice cream pies from Rainbow Snow and Ice Cream in in Palmyra were the recommendation from LebTown reader Natalie Ryan. “The whole pie was only $15!”

Classic twist cone at Jersey Joe’s

Edward Moyer sent us a pic of his classic vanilla/chocolate twist cone from Jersey Joe’s in Jonestown. “Best ice cream and price.”

“Death by Chocolate” at the Jigger Shop

George Yagel of Lebanon said his favorite order is the “Death by Chocolate” sundae at the Jigger Shop.

Mango milkshake

Andres de Jesus of Lebanon said he likes to order mango milkshakes when he’s out for a cold treat, with Rita’s being a personal favorite of his.
