2006 Best Ice Cream, Cape Cod

Four Seas

Compared to, say, Ben & Jerry’s, the list of flavors at this Centerville favorite doesn’t seem particularly innovative. But Four Seas, which has been in business since 1934, was the first to come up with such then-brilliant ideas as adding chocolate chips to a vanilla base. They still do homemade chocolate chip, maple walnut, penuche, and fresh strawberry better than anyone around.
