We know summer temperatures have hit when we spot the herds of tykes and their parents in line for a cone at dairy giants Handel's Homemade Ice Cream and Yogurt. The two Toledo shops, on both Sylvania Ave. and Secor Rd., boast over a hundred kinds of ice cream and frozen yogurt, among them funky seasonal flavors like Blueberry Cheesecake Chunk, Elvis, Peanut Butter and Jelly, Peppermint Stick, and even Blue Moon. They extend their creativity with all things frozen to ices, smoothies, frozen hot chocolate, and Handel’s pops (a scoop of ice cream on a stick, covered in chocolate). Our favorite? The shop's year round hours and free samples. With their menu variety and excellent service, it seems obvious why nearly 30,000 people visit a Handel’s location every year.
