Congratulations to Mount Desert Island Ice Cream, originally located in Bar Harbor who were named as 1 of the 33 Best Ice Cream Shops in America according to Thrillist!

With 2 locations in Bar Harbor, the original location at 7 Firefly Lane and the location opening, today, Sunday, May 26th at 325 Main Street, Mount Desert Island Ice Cream has expanded to Portland, Maine at 51 Exchange Street and Washington DC, at 3110 Mount Pleasant Ave. NW. Mount Desert Ice Cream is also expanding internationally, opening a location in Japan in July.

According to Thrillist

This is a place that churns things 5 gallons at a time, but the things they churn are absolutely remarkable, ranging from a fantastic blueberry sour cream crumble to cinnamon cardamom and a White Russian-inspired concoction called The Dude, which anyone would abide, regardless of their bowling skills.
