Woodbury Wandering: Dairy De-lite

Sami Jensen, a newcomer to Woodbury, discovers what will be a new addiction: ice cream from Dairy De-lite. Originally posted to poorandpretty.com.


Hello Patch readers! My name is Sami Jensen. I'm the writer and sole proprietor of Poor & Pretty, a culture blog and small cosmetics company. I just moved to Woodbury a few months ago, and am finally getting out and about. I hope you'll enjoy this newcomer's glimpse into your beautiful little towns. [This post is cross-blogged from Poor & Pretty].

I’ve been in my new apartment in Woodbury two months now, and I’m loving it. I haven’t had much time to wander around town and check out the local shops {lots of antiques!}, but I’m fairly certain I’ve moved into the same town as the best ice cream in Connecticut. Possibly the country. Possibly the world!

My boyfriend, Dad, and I stopped at Dairy De-lite a few weeks ago, after they helped me pick up and move some new furniture from Ikea. I asked for a scoop of lavender and a scoop of creamy peach and I got so much ice cream, it ended up being my dinner! {Also, I had a huge late lunch}. It was definitely a highlight of my day. My outfit was another.

Don’t mind my face in the image on the right. I was making funny faces at my boyfriend, ha! My tank top with zebra print trim is from sugarplum, the white belt is a thrift store find, the pink jeans are from American Eagle {similar}, the rainbow stripey flats are from Urban OG {similar}.

If you live in the area, or if you’re visiting, definitely drop by for a scoop or two {or twenty} from Dairy De-lite, 705 Main St. South in Woodbury, CT. They have over 50 flavors of ice cream, plus gelato, soft serve, slushies, shakes, frozen yogurt, and lots of sundae combinations. I’ll be visiting often this summer!

Go to LaBonnes and pick up a bottle of Portside Grilling Sauce and Marinade. The sauce is an apricot based BBQ sauce and the owner lives in Woodbury. The sauce is awesome on just about everything!! Welcome to Woodbury. :) Ryan

welcome to Woodbury! Come to New Morning Market for everything local, natural & organic! Tip: if you want to sound like a local....everyone calls the Dairy De-Lite "Charlie's"
