As a Dorchester resident, I frequent the Fields Corner neighborhood to eat, shop, attend local community meetings, visit my hair stylist and now to enjoy local ice cream! Chill on Park is a new ice cream parlor located at 142 Park Street in Dorchester that serves locally made Puritan Ice Cream. Their menu includes frappes, ice cream cakes, coffee, tea and pastries. Some of their top-selling ice cream flavors are Butter Pecan, Cake Batter, Pistachio and Salted Caramel Truffle. Caribbean residents take note, they also serve old-time favorites, Grapenut and Rum Raisin! I visited for a quick taste-test with my foodie assistant, MiniCEO because she’s one 12 year old who loves ice cream. Her favorite was the Cookie Monster while I really enjoyed the Coffee Oreo and the Salted Caramel Pretzel. On my next trip, I plan on trying their root beer float. Team Chill, Chill on Park’s opening team, is hired from The Boys and Girls Club of Dorchester. Eight teens recommended by The Boys and Girls Club of Dorchester, who live in the neighborhood were hired to be Chill On Park’s ice cream ambassadors. This makes me proud as we are also members of The Boys and Girls Club of Dorchester.
