    My fav green tea ice cream on the left and 50/50 on the right with strawberry cheesecake and strawberry banana freeze. I can't wait to go back and try a different combo!

    Sacramento, CA is home to Gunther's Ice Cream, which opened in 1940. It has a reputation as the best ice cream in ALL of California.

    Everything I tried. My first time here, it was the coldest night of 2015. The line was to the door. When I tried the butter pecan, it all made sense.

    Gunther's is a quality, old fashioned style ice cream shop. My favorite is the 50/50 with Mango Freeze and Coconut Ice Cream.

    It's a Sacramento tradition. Sit out on the sidewalk with your Toasted Almond or Bing Cherry or Butter Brickle cone and chat with your old and new friends.

    The freezes are excellent, with real fruit too. Beware the lime. It's especially tart, but good.
