LIST: Where to get ice cream in Central Texas

July 17 is National Ice Cream Day. We asked KVUE viewers where to find the best ice cream in the Austin area.

AUSTIN, Texas — It's safe to say Texans love ice cream. Whether it's tubs of Blue Bell or H-E-B Creamy Creations, upside-down Blizzards or cups and cones from local shops, ice cream hits the spot on these hot summer days.

And if you're someone who needs an excuse to indulge, you're in luck: National Ice Cream Day is this Sunday, July 17. 

To celebrate, we asked KVUE viewers where to find the best ice cream in the Austin area. While a few answered with chains – Andy's Frozen Custard, Dairy Queen, Baskin Robbins, Culver's and Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt, specifically – most shared local spots serving up scoops of ice cream, gelato and other frozen goodness.
