Nothing completes a summer night in The Mitten like a fresh, local, frozen treat sourced from the best Midwest cows and dairy farms.  But moo-ove over, ice cream! In West Michigan, there’s plenty more to explore when it comes to sweet summer treats. “Weird” Al Yankovic might love rocky road — as do we — but us natives are also here to explore our share of Parisian treats, cupcakes, chocolates, danishes and more.
