Before ice cream, cones were only filled with cheerleading chants and an overwhelming sense of responsibility for organizing traffic. Enjoy a conical dessert with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a punch card for 10 small, two-scoop premium ice cream cones or cups at M. Hibbard in Weston (a $35 value).
Michael Hibbard grew up churning frozen custard at his grandfather's stand, and years later created a shop to pay homage to his roots, mixing locally sourced milk, raw cane sugar, and organic ingredients into delicious, artful ice creams. Flavors range from rich cappuccino chip to refreshing black raspberry to pistachio almond, a scoop of which makes for a great dessert, snack, or summer snowball alternative. Approved by Fresh From Florida for using more than 50% local ingredients, M. Hibbard's ice cream imbues his grandfather's 71-year-old process with environmentally conscious practices. Michael and his team of sweet makers craft their confections with an eye for texture and flavor, sweetening with organic vanilla, coffee, and black raspberries, and enriching batches with cage-free eggs and grass-fed cones.
