First off, the location on BC's campus is clutch. My friends and I had the joy of graduate night classes in spring semester, and would stop by this place almost every week at 10 o'clock on our way home. However, that isn't what caused White Mountain to earn my vote. The ice cream is delicious. They have a wide variety of flavors, and a specials menu that changes daily. The Cookie Monster ice cream alone could earn my vote - it combines the best of both worlds, chocolate chip cookie dough and Oreo cookies (kind of reminiscent of the Milk and Cookies flavor by Ben and Jerry's). But I also love that they have a substantial variety of "healthier" options too. Lots of low-fat hard yogurts, plus 4 or 5 non-fat soft yogurts and a couple sorbet flavors. Decent selection of toppings to mix in, and you can grab ice cream cakes or pints to take home with you from the freezer. Added bonus: free water coolers with paper cups for when you need something to wash down the rich ice cream. More ice cream places should have this available.
