NH Ice Cream Trail has 50 stops and a sweet challenge for 2022

Ice cream lovers across the state are in for a treat, as the New Hampshire Ice Cream Trail is back with 50 ice cream shops in the lineup for 2022. The challenge began Memorial Day weekend and goes until Columbus Day so there’s plenty of time to participate .

The trail is produced by Granite State Dairy Promotion, and it started in 2012. The goal of the trail is to encourage residents to visit all 50 locations around the state, collecting a “passport sticker” at each shop for a chance to get a free sweatshirt and participate in a grand prize drawing, according to Amy Hall, director of GSDP.

To qualify for a place on the trail, ice cream shops must “display a high level of commitment to serving local ice cream from New England or New Hampshire dairy farms,” ​​Hall said.

UNH Dairy Bar retail associate Diana Guy hands off a cone to guests Tuesday, June 14, 2022 in Durham.

Here’s a look at a sampling of stops on the trail and some of their favorite ice cream treats:
