And on the fourth day, they kept counting...
The start of Patch's "Best Of" Summer series has generated a lot of support for ice cream shops all over Union County. So we've winnowed the field to the top vote-getter in each town. And now, we're giving you all a free pass to eat more ice cream. Remember, all ice cream eaten in the name of research contains no calories, so spend the next week traveling around the county to check out the finalists, then comment, post on our Facebook pages and tweet your findings. You have until noon Thursday to give us your feedback; we will post the name of the Grand Winner at noon on Friday.
And remember, your work doesn't end here: We'll have a new category each week. So while you're knocking down all those cones this week, start thinking about your favorite pizza for next week!
