“But I’m gettin’ outta here. I’m… I smell ice cream!”
-Chunk, The Goonies [1985]

I scream. You scream. And every once in a while, those screams aren’t because of existential dread, but rather for Utah’s favorite dessert: ice cream. For all those Salt Lake City sweet tooths (Is that the plural? It sounds better than ‘sweet teeth I guess), we are here to sprinkle a little creamy joy into your lives with the Best Ice Cream in Salt Lake City.

And yeah, the Best Ice Cream in Salt Lake City is absolutely some of the best in the country. It’s well known that Utahns eat more ice cream per capita than most states. It’s the State/Church-approved vice, and our abnormally large families are practically bred to consume as much ice cream as humanly possible. I’m lactose intolerant and even I make the terrible decision to visit these SLC ice cream shops on a regular basis. So let’s scream! For ice cream!

Despite this list being ice cold, we expect some hot takes on this Best Ice Cream in Salt Lake City list as everyone has a favorite local spot for ice cream. Didn’t see your favorite SLC ice cream shop? Tell us your favorite cup or cone in the comments below!
