If you've been watching and waiting patiently for Hammonton's Royale Crown Homemade Ice Cream & Grille to open for the season, the wait is nearly over!

I would never brand myself a stalker, but I have been incessantly checking Royale Crown's Facebook page for them to announce their opening date for 2024.

Ohhhhhh, how I cannot wait to get out to Hammonton for a taste of RC's Jersey Strawberry soft serve ice cream. Strawberry season in the Garden State is so short-lived that I've got to get that custard before it's gone. It's my favorite of all the homemade soft serves Royale Crown, in business since 1953, offers throughout the summer featuring the best Jersey fruit the state's got to offer.

Finally, though, I've seen what I'd been waiting for! Royale Crown 71st season officially begins Saturday, April 27th.

After strawberry will come the Jersey Blueberry soft serve, and then the Jersey Peach, but I'm getting ahead of myself. Love homemade ice cream and Italian ice, plus custard, frozen yogurt, and ice cream cakes? Put Royale Crown on your spring/summer bucket list!

NO, THIS IS NOT A SPONSORED POST. I am truly just a Royale Crown SUPERFAN, lol.
