People’s Choice: Best Island Ice Cream

People’s Choice: Best Island Ice Cream

Last week’s Instagram Stories Poll was for Best Island Ice Cream!

FACT: Ice cream is a super food, as stated by ME

Real ice cream facts, courtesy of the International Dairy Foods Association: “Ice cream’s origins are known to reach back as far as the second century B.C., although no specific date of origin nor inventor has been indisputably credited with its discovery…  ‘Cream Ice’ as it was called, appeared regularly at the table of Charles I during the 17th century. France was introduced to similar frozen desserts in 1553 by the Italian Catherine de Medici when she became the wife of Henry II of France. It wasn’t until 1660 that ice cream was made available to the general public.”

This was an interesting poll, as it was clear from the get-go, who the local’s favorites were. So I’m just going to just skip ahead and serve up the winners!


The Best Island Ice Cream as voted by the people, for the people are:









The Juice Bar is only a 2-minute walk from Straight Wharf, on Broad Street. With 50+ flavors of award-winning homemade ice cream, sundaes, fresh squeezed juices, baked goods and smoothies we actually weren’t surprised that The Juice Bar won in a landslide. We’ll let the local’s tell you best:
“The Juice Bar, ACK, hands-down!”
“Is there even any question? Closing my eyes and dreaming of waffle bowls now!”
“When I look at pictures from my last holiday on Nantucket, there are many photographs of the sea. And just as many of me with my ice cream of the day from THE JUICE BAR”

Mad Martha’s has multiple locations on the Vineyard with one conveniently located only 3-minutes from where we dock… by foot! People rave about their unique flavors such as blueberry, coconut, pineapple, mocha chip, mint oreo… just go already! What to know before you go – Mad Martha’s is cash only.
