When it’s hot outside, nothing cools you down (and satisfies your sweet tooth) quite like a frozen dessert. Here are the icy concoctions you told us were worth the brain freeze. ~ Michelle Carl, Press Tribune editor A&W 1089 Sunrise Ave. and 5130 Foothills Blvd., Roseville “My favorite place for a frozen treat, believe it or not, is KFC/A&W root beer. Great floats. Ice cream cones are only 57 cents. Good cones, great floats and lots of coupons.” ~ Frank Weinstein, Roseville Nuyo Frozen Yogurt 9213 Sierra College Blvd. No. 100, Roseville “At Nuyo you can make your own frozen yogurt your way! First you can choose your flavor. Next you can choose toppings from chocolate chips all the way to Japanese mochi bits. And last but not least you get to weigh your delicacy at only 39 cents an ounce. They also have shaved ice and sundaes you can make. Nuyo is cold, creamy and delicious. The shop is clean, plays great music and the staff is very friendly. Everyone should try Nuyo!” ~ Evan Chinn, Roseville, age 11 Honey Treat Yogurt 1821 Douglas Blvd. Suite C3, Roseville “Honey Treat Yogurt hands down is the best! Fudgesicle u r amazing!!!” ~ Erin Gadberry McKinney (via Facebook) Nubbins Drive In 308 Washington Blvd., Roseville “They have great slushies and soft serve ice cream. My nephew is a sucker for the root beer float.” ~ Chelsea Johnson (via Facebook) Miabella Gelato The Fountains, 1198 Roseville Parkway, Suite 140, Roseville “Last summer, I enjoyed a hot summer night at the Fountains and had a chance to try the gelato at Miabella. Already inspired by the fountains, the crowd and the summer heat, it was great to walk into the cool fresh environment. Having a food allergy, it was nice to go somewhere that was different, fresh and edible. Imagine a dessert that was rose flavored? I caught a seat and enjoyed the large scoop of gelato; it was smooth, creamy and fresh — the perfect treat on a hot summer day.” ~ Sandy Bryan, Roseville ---------- How to enter Next month we’re chewing on … happy hours!
