Whether you prefer your ice cream in simple scoops or mixed with innovative flavors and toppings(why hello, green-tea soft-serve with mochi cake chunks), Dallas has a lot to offer when it comes to frozen treats. (What else are we supposed to do in this heat?) Here, the best ice-cream shops in the city, ranked.

highlandpark

9. HIGHLAND PARK OLD-FASHIONED SODA FOUNTAIN

A sundae at the counter will transport you to 1950. Save this place for when you have time to indulge and enjoy, because this isn’t your grab-and-go ice-cream spot.

3229 Knox St; 214-521-2126 or highlandparksodafountain.com

steelcity

8. Steel City Pops

Do ice pops count as ice cream? Judging from the monster line that is always out the door at this Greenville Avenue shop, the answer is 100 percent. Dessert on a stick is so much more fun.

2012 Greenville Ave.; 972-525-7359 or steelcitypops.com

7. Wild About Harry’s

This Dallas landmark serves up custard and toppings to the bustling bunch on Henderson Avenue. After enjoying a hot dog and french fries, indulge in Harry’s Favorite sundae, complete with two scoops of custard, hot fudge and Spanish peanuts. To-go pints are also an option.

6. COOLHAUS

This food truck from Southern California serves delicious ice-cream sandwiches in a style thatthe company has dubbed "farchitecture" (food + architecture). Each sandwich is created in honor of an architect or an architectural movement of some kind. Try a Mintimalism and chances are you will never be the same.

5. What’s Da Scoop?

You will probably catch this food truck during a stint at Klyde Warren Park, and when you do, grab one of their famous sundaes, like the Black & White--with vanilla ice cream, Zanzibar chocolate ice cream, white chocolate, dark chocolate, marshmallow-agave drizzle and Oreos, of course.

4. Kate Weiser Chocolate

The signature sundae special Peach French Toast (with peach sorbet, brioche ice cream, sour-cream ice cream, sweet-tea peaches, toasted brioche slices and candied almonds) is almost too pretty to eat. Keyword: almost.

3. Motor Sisters Ice Cream

Shake it off with the Taylor Swift-inspired milkshake, made with Fruity Pebbles and sprinkles. Regular shakes? We are never, ever, EVER getting back together.

2. Cow Tipping Creamery

This Austin-based ice-cream shop made its way to Dallas this year--praise the ice-cream lords. Highly recommended: the Matcha Man, with green-tea soft-serve, green-tea mochi cake chunks, brown sugar, hot fudge, cornflake crumbs and toasted sesame seeds.
