A Yummy Summer at the The Ice Cream Machine in Cumberland, R.I.
When thinking of a favorite ice cream stand in New England, The Ice Cream Machine in Cumberland, R.I., comes to mind.
While a few other local ice cream stands have a higher profile, locals like us know that The Ice Cream Machine is the real deal with a wide variety of ice cream flavors. The revolving door of specials are of particular note like key lime Pie, blueberry, apple and pumpkin. With the all the flavors we’ve sampled, the thick and creamy texture really sends this brand over the top. My personal favorites, in addition to the specials, are black raspberry, brownie batter, cinnamon, ginger, orange pineapple and raspberry truffle.
Located in a semi rural area of Cumberland near the Wrentham, Mass., border, this pleasing, unassuming ice cream stand never fails to bring in the crowds, no matter what time of the afternoon or evening business hours. It is, after all, part of the fabric of a summer in the northern Rhode Island and remote southwestern Boston suburbs.
The Ice Cream Machine is located at 4288 Diamond Hill Rd., Cumberland RI. Tel. (401) 333-4513
