What’s the one thing that’s almost impossible to turn down on a hot, summer’s day? And no, we’re not talking about air conditioning, although there’s definitely a strong argument there. We’re talking about ice cream!

Cones, cups, pints—you name it! Here are a few places on Hilton Head Island that have the best frozen sweet treats!

Best Ice Cream: Frozen Moo

  • Family owned
  • More than 90 flavors
  • Low-fat and no-sugar options

Frozen Moo is conveniently located in the thick of Coligny Plaza, a shopping center directly across from the popular, Coligny Beach. A great place to grab ice cream before or after spending time at the beach, it also makes for a great pit stop during a shopping spree.

With more than 90 flavors to choose from, everyone in your group will find their favorite flavor—or flavors! Deciding on just one will be a hard task, but any of the ice cream, yogurt, sorbet, sherbet, low fat, and no sugar options will be some of the best you’ve had.

Best Italian Ice & Frozen Custard: Rita’s

  • Italian ice is made fresh daily with real fruit

With more than 500 stores across the United States, chances are, you’ve seen or even been to a Rita’s before. Refreshingly sweet with plenty of ways to pair flavors of Italian ice and custard, if you haven’t visited Rita’s on the island, you’re missing out! There are two locations on Hilton Head Island, one is a kiosk, and the other is a storefront only a few steps away.

Best known for their Italian ice that’s made with real fruit daily, Rita’s also offers a wide array of hand-scooped custard flavors. If you combine Italian ice with custard, you’ll have an amazing treat that’s called a Gelati. Or you can try a Blendini, Concrete, or Misto Shake.

Best Frozen Yogurt: Sweet Frog

  • Customize your frozen yogurt creation
  • Seasonal and crowd-favorite flavors are available

Also found throughout the country in more than 300 locations, you can always count on delicious frozen yogurt and fresh toppings at Sweet Frog. The store mascots, Scoop and Cookie, add to the fun and welcome friends and family to enjoy a cold, sweet treat together.

Grab the size cup you prefer, and choose from any of the current flavors of soft-serve style frozen yogurt—or mix a few! Head to the toppings bar for many different kinds of fresh fruit, candy, sauces, nuts, cereals, and more fun extras like cheesecake bites or sprinkles. You choose what and how much goes in your cup, which is all priced by weight.
