Best Ice Cream
Although you can find Royal Scoop (239-992-2000) homemade ice cream and frozen yogurt sold all over town these days, the original storefront in Bonita Springs has existed since 1979. In 1994, current owners David and Sarah Zimmermann took over the shop. Complete with black-and-white tiles, a neon sign, and rows of booths, Royal Scoop epitomizes our childhood visions of slurping ice cream at the corner shop. It sells 44 flavors in regular, dairy-free sorbet, yogurt and sugar-free forms at the shop, including its signature Royal Turtle and popular butter pecan flavors. Royal Scoop also sells deli and other sandwiches.
Known equally for its homemade fudge and shelves of candy, Kilwins also sells 32 flavors of ice cream. Most popular? Toasted coconut and salted caramel. (kilwins.com/naples, 239-261-9898)
