There's absolutely no arguing that ice cream can be enjoyed all year round, but I have a feeling that the summer heat may be just the motivation you need to sign up for one of these ice cream pint clubs. Imagine a world where every month (or every few months), top-notch creameries send you specialty and classic flavors right to your doorstop. Need I say more?

1. Salt & Straw

My freezer at school is stocked with Salt & Straw– it'll be what I eat during my last, dying breath. Okay, that's extreme, but all I'm trying to say is that this is the best ice cream I've ever had. If you don't live in Portland, Hollywood, or Los Angeles, take a pause from this article and join their pint club, where you'll get five pints of their exceptional, seasonal ice cream every month.

2. Ice Cream Jubilee

This ice cream shop in Washington, D.C. serves up some seriously good, unique sweets, like their signature Gin & Tonic sorbet or limited edition Coffee & Donuts ice cream. Once you're a member of their club, Ice Cream Jubilee will send you six pints of ice cream for 3, 6, 9, or 12 months. So go ahead, do it– Alton Brown would approve.

3. FōMū

This one's for you, dairy-free folks! FōMū is a plant-based joint in the Boston area churning up small-batch ice cream using primarily coconut milk. Their club ships four times a year sending you three seasonal flavors– like Sweet Lavender, Blueberry Shortbread, Pumpkin Caramel, and Chocolate Peppermint Cookie– and one classic flavor each delivery. 

4. Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams

Devoted to building relationships with the people who provide them with what goes into their ice cream, Jeni's is an ice cream powerhouse that has spread from Ohio to six other states. If you're not near one of their scoop shops, you can get three pints of ice cream every three months delivered to you. The coolest part? Sometimes you'll get flavors that haven't even been introduced to the public yet. 

5. McConnell's Fine Ice Creams

With a few spots in California, McConnell's has been dishing out carefully crafted, rich ice cream for 70 years. Their ice cream club lets you choose your "dedication level"– 3, 6, or 12 months (#SpoonTip: If you buy the 12-month package, you get the 12-month free). They'll hand pick three ice creams from their classic, seasonal, and limited edition flavors to send your way. 

6. Goldbely

If you're looking to sample a lot of different creameries from all over, this club was made for you. Whether you choose 3, 6, 9, or 12 months, you're guaranteed four to six different pints of ice cream from around the country. Some creameries featured in the past include Humphrey Slocombe and Coolhaus ice cream sandwiches. Variety is the spice of life, right? 

So there you have it– the most exciting piece of mail you'll ever get (unless you're a member of other food subscriptions, which I madly respect). And if you're feeling especially generous, these subscriptions also make a great gift for any ice cream obsessed loved one. If you're lucky, maybe they'll share.
