July 18, 2006 -- One of the best things about summer is that it's a great excuse to eat ice cream. "Good Morning America" anchors had the enviable assignment this morning of sampling ice cream from some of the best ice cream makers in the country, at least according to Epicurious.com and Citysearch.com.
If you'd like to visit these ice cream parlors or just order from them, the information is below. And, unlike the anchors, you don't have to eat the ice cream at 8:30 a.m. Unless you want to, that is.
