Where to buy ice cream dishes

Frozen deserts have been enjoyed by mankind for centuries. Emperor Nero enjoyed snow, gathered from the mountains by slaves, and covered with fruit pulp, honey and nectar. King Tang of China made ice and milk desserts in 37-68 AD, and his recipes spread over time to Europe becoming sherbet and ice cream. Ice cream continues to be served today in bowls and cones. This article discusses where to buy ice cream dishes.

Big-box stores

Big-box stores will have many ice cream dishes. They may include ones made of plastic, to glass dishes, sundae dishes and glasses to sets of bowls with accompanying spoons. You may find that the dishes are sold separately or even individually and in varying sizes from very small to rather large. The spoons may come as a set in the form of novelty flatware, or just be plain with simple designs on their handles.

Tableware stores

Tableware stores that specialise in things for the kitchen as well as a source of ice cream bowls as well. These stores will have some plastic bowls, but not as much. Instead, there you will find ice glasses, ceramic and porcelain bowls from all over the world. The desert bowls may be plain or hand painted, come individually or in sets of four or more. There may also be a wide variety of dessert glasses that may actually be made of or resemble fine crystal. While probably more expensive, the selection of bowls will be wider from which to choose.

Antique and rummage stores

If you like collecting odd and beautiful ice cream dishes, then an antique store or a rummage store may be the place for you. There, you may find Italian dishes, French dishes, Chinese dishes and more. Some may be of glass and others may be of fine China. The selection will be eclectic, which may mean that you will have to mix and match your ice cream bowls to make a set. You may even find unusual spoons to go along with your dishes, such as ones made of silver or plated silver, or ones with enameled handles. If you don't mind a mix of styles, you may be able to find a set of ice cream bowls at bargain prices.
