Cool Upper Valley Stuff
Dairy Twirl - A Wheelock staff favorite when it's open in the summer. Huge, cheap cones of soft serve or regular ice cream in a variety of delicious flavors. If you get it dipped in chocolate, the nice shell keeps your melting goodness somewhat contained.
Directions: Head south on 120 out of Hanover towards Lebanon. You go about 5 miles, past DHMC, over 89, and then you come to a stop sign at a T intersection with a gas station in front of you. Go left onto Hanover Rd. Turn right onto Rt. 4/Mechanic St. Dairy Twirl is on the left after the Kleen dry cleaners. It's a big yellow building with a walk-up window.
