Who should contend for Michigan's best ice cream parlor?
First, it was coney dogs. Then it was barbecue.
Now, MLive continues its search for Michigan's best with another hot topic: ice cream.
Yes, never afraid to take on the big subjects, we're looking for the best ice cream parlor in the state. John Gonzales—the statewide entertainment reporter for MLive, AnnArbor.com's partner website—will again lead the quest for the ultimate winner. (Rough life he's got.)
In case you missed our earlier projects, here's the drill: Readers from across the state—including ours in Washtenaw County—nominate possible choices for Michigan's best. Our local websites take these nominations and run online polls to get the top choices in each population center. Then "Gonzo" fearlessly sets out to test the nominees and pick an ultimate winner.
Note that we're looking for the best ice cream parlor—which means we'll take into account the overall experience as well as the quality of the ice cream itself.
For more background, read Gonzo's post on the new venture. And to get things started, we need your nominations for the best in Washtenaw County. Washtenaw Dairy and Stucchi's, of course, but where else? Leave your nominee in a comment below, or send an email to email@example.com.
We'll start the poll on Wednesday. And once the winners are known, we'll keep you posted as Gonzo eats his way across Michigan.
