MACOMB COUNTY, MI - Macomb County's county roadways are dotted with ice cream shops. This delectable dessert originated in the second century B.C. While no one claims to have invented ice cream, we do know that Alexander the Great preferred honey and nectar-flavored ice snow.
That is ice cream's allure. Regardless of the season, whether spring, summer, fall or even winter, no one, not even monarchs, can resist a scoop of this comfort food. If you’re visiting Macomb County, here’s a brief list of your soon-to-be favorite ice cream parlors.
Located on the corner of Ten Mile and Rose St, Eastpointe, Foxy’s Ice Cream is a family-owned ice cream shop that has been running for 60 years, and now the legacy is carried by the third generation of the family. Aside from being one of the most famous ice cream parlors in the community, given its history, Foxy Ice Cream also offers fair and reasonable prices.
