As summer approaches, it's definitely the time for ice cream! Check out the place that has been named the best ice cream shop in Michigan (multiple times).

This Mitten State creamery actually has a special place in my heart. We got our multiple-tier, gorgeous ice cream wedding cake there. Highly recommend! Especially because prior to the wedding, we got to head out to their sprawling farm and creamery and try a TON of different flavors - yum!

Readers Digest also recently gave props to Moomers, naming it the top ice cream shop in Michigan.

Here's their praise for the Traverse City ice cream shop,

Tour the dairy farm at MOOmers before heading inside to sample one of their 160-plus ice cream flavors. If you need some help deciding on which sinful scoop to order, take a hint from the people on Good Morning America who raved about Cherries Moobilee: a black cherry base with brownie and cherry chunks and a fudge swirl.

Cherries Moobilee is pictured on the left below.
