Ashley’s Ice Cream never uses any artificial colors or flavors. All natural, fresh ingredients lead to naturally the best ice cream! Of course they don’t stop there, whipped cream is whipped fresh in the store everyday, along with fresh baked waffle cones and their famous Bittersweet hot fudge made with all the highest quality chocolates.
Ashley’s Ice Cream originated in New Haven in 1979 on College Street, just steps away from the dormitories of Yale University. It didn’t take long for the crowds, accolades, and awards to start filling the store; so much so that a second Ashley’s opened on the other side of campus on York Street, where they still are today! They’ve even been lucky enough to serve some famous alumni and students such as several past Presidents, Academy Award nominee Paul Giamatti, and many other actors including James Franco, Jordana Brewster, and David Duchovny. Although New Haven will always be where their roots are, other locations in the area soon followed.
Voted “Connecticut’s Best Ice Cream,” Ashley’s scoops up unique flavors such as Coffee Oreo, Bourbon Brown Sugar, Chocolate Banana Chip, and many more. Top it off with their homemade bittersweet hot fudge and fresh whipped cream. Come to Ashley’s and experience ice cream at its best.
