Short little shoutout to the oldest ice cream shoppe in the East Bay: Fenton’s Creamery. Founded in Oakland in 1894, this restaurant and ice cream haven is still one of the best places to eat or score a cone of your favorite flavor in the Bay Area.
The whole reason that we decided to make a visit to Fenton’s was three little words: swiss milk chocolate. I tried this seasonal beauty a few years back and the love felt was instantaneous. The best way I can describe it is if you took a bunch of frozen Crackle (a prized 90’s ice cream topping, boys and girls) and crushed it up and put it in subtle milk chocolate ice cream. So delicious. Definitely not replicable at home.
If you’re ever in the Bay Area and are in need of some rich, expertly made ice cream, look no further.
Thanks and happy eats,
