As we find ourselves in the middle of hot July days, it’s time to turn to the topic that’s on everyone’s mind: ice cream. Whether you’re at the beach, picking up a cone of your favorite flavor, or strolling along Newbury Street, looking for something frozen and refreshing, there are places all over Massachusetts to get the treat. We want to hear all of your recommendations for where to go.

Last year, we asked you for the best ice cream parlors in Boston, Cambridge and Somerville, and Cape Cod. In Boston, you named J.P. Licks as your favorite destination, lauding the brownie sundae. When it comes to Cambridge and Somerville, you picked New City Microcreamery, known for the smooth texture of their scoops. And in Cape Cod, you voted for Sundae School Ice Cream, where they serve coffee Oreo and pistachio, made with real nuts. We’re putting this question to you again, and we want to see if your take on ice cream has changed.
