    By: Jen West For the AJC


    Now that summer is here in full blast, we bet you have a few secret go-to frozen treats to help beat the heat.

    Last week's Best of Atlanta poll from AccessAtlanta.com was inspired by all things cool and tasty.

    Do you prefer a creamy ice cream, decadent sundae, tangy sorbet or creative Popsicle?

    Lucky for you, all of these can be found around Atlanta. 

    With 53 percent of the votes, it's fair to say that Butter & Cream Ice Cream in Decatur has Atlanta's favorite frozen treats and ice cream in town. As a small batch ice cream purveyor, they feature homemade ice cream, sorbet and sweet treats all made from scratch with the freshest of ingredients. Is your mouth watering yet? It should be. 

    In a strong second place is Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream, which took Atlanta by the taste buds and never looked back. Jeni's is just as much about flavor as community and cultivating happiness among staff and customers. You can enjoy your flavorful ice cream knowing that it was made with 100 percent love.

    Third place doesn't mean any less delicious. Four Fat Cows is all about creativity with flavors like Strawberry Balsamic, Blueberry Buttermilk Pie, Chocolate Overload and many more. 

    If you are a true ice cream lover, then you probably just can't get enough. Our other official nominees are also obsess-worthy: Sarah Jean's Ice Cream (Cobb), Queen of Cream (Intown), 8 Fahrenheit Ice Cream (North Fulton) and Honeysuckle Gelato (Intown).
