At Travel Glitter, we’re all about traveling like a local. We believe in supporting community businesses, and we love having conversations with the people who live where we travel.

But there are some things that make us forget all about our principles.

Like ice cream.

When it comes to ice cream, we care less about who made it or how much carbon was put into the atmosphere to get it to us. Our only question is, “when can we get some more please?”

So when it comes to cream made by a family-owned business, well that’s surely our sweet spot.

So color us happy when we learned the luxurious Four Seasons Boston has opened up a seasonal pop-up shop, Four Seasons Scoops, which will be serving ice cream from Gifford’s, a family-owned business located in Maine.

If Maine-made ice cream isn’t buy celexa online local enough, you might also get to sample the ice cream stylings of Executive Pastry Chef Tim Fonseca, who is getting in on the action, and serving up some of his own homemade flavors.

Muddy Boots Ice Cream // (c) Giffords Ice CreamNot only is the ice cream New England local, but the unique flavors even call upon area themes: Maine Wild Blueberry and Campfire S’mores to name one or two. Certainly Muddy Boots might be worth a second look.

We’re ice cream purists, but if you like to pile it on, a variety of toppings are also available, including Cake Crumbs, Nerds, Fruit Loops and Malt Balls.

If you’re a social media user, you might even score yourself some free scoops every Friday, when special guest “celebrity scoopers” give away ice cream to followers of @FSBoston on Twitter.

Scoops is open Wednesday to Sunday, from 1pm to 4pm, through September 8th.
