A friend of mine from childhood/high school (really, almost forever!), who lives in LA, owns an ice cream shop called Glacier Homemade Ice Cream & Gelato in Manhattan Beach. They have been nominated for Best Ice Cream and Best Yogurt and would like your vote! For you So Cal readers, if you have been to their store or would like to check it out and vote, go here (then click on Best of the Beach in the left yellow column and select Glacier in the dropdown menu for the ice cream and the yogurt category). They are also on the "hot list" for MyFoxLA.com in City Wide polls.
They also have shops in the Denver/Boulder area if you want to check out that store and vote for the LA store! Or if you have never been and just want to take my word for it that they are awesome! go ahead and vote.
