1. The Big Dipper

Lots of San Joaquin locals come to The Big Dipper for their summer ice cream fix – but this place also gets a lot of people stopping by on their way to Yosemite and other popular summer camping destinations. The Big Dipper offers a killer assortment of handmade ice creams, including their “milkshake of the moment.” This is usually a more extravagant flavor assortment, like the Double Shot Shake with coffee ice cream blended with a Starbucks double shot, espresso beans, and a cookie straw. If that isn’t enough to make you interested…we don’t know what else is.

2. Tigers Yogurt

If you’re not really feeling traditional ice cream and want to get on that never-ending froyo craze, then try out Tigers Yogurt in Stockton. They offer a variety of flavors (that you can mix and match, of course) as well as endless toppings so that no two froyo bowls are ever a like. What’s our favorite flavor combo? Salted caramel corn mixed with cookies and cream. Yum! Note that this place is cash only, so be prepared with plenty on hand.
