Ron’s in Hyde Park is the way to go for any and all ice cream

It may not be the creamery or quaint ice cream parlor you're looking for, but Brigham's really does make a very good peppermint ice cream. Unparalleled. At Christmas time, you can find it at most major supermarkets: Hannafords, Shaws/Star Market, Market Basket, etc.
I enjoy it with a homemade hot fudge sauce that is on the bitter side.

The Ice Creamsmith does have awesome peppermint stick ice cream, but they only offer it as a monthly flavor (November) and they are now on limited winter hours with pre-packed ice cream of just a few flavors.

I hear a lot of people rave about this place but the few times I went the ice cream tasted like frozen cool whip and frosting, kind of like a cheap, no-name, hoodie knock off that you'd get at the high school cafeteria. There seems to be such a disconnect between others opinions and mine that I wonder if maybe I only dreamt I went and never actually set foot in the place.

From the grocery store - Brighams.
From an ice cream stand - Crescent Ridge in Sharon.

Of course you'd need a time machine to go back to the 1960's. Never mind.

there are more than 5 people who remember the wonderful Coolidge Corner store on the corner of Beacon & Harvard.

Agree- back in the 1950s it was Howard Johnson's!

They have peppermint as a special flavor right now. They will also make a six pint batch of whatever you want if you want that much for a party or freezer hoard. https://www.tippingcowicecream.com/flavors

Tipping cow is great!! They also have really good non-dairy flavors.

Christina's in Cambridge also has peppermint stick as a seasonal flavor, and I believe they'll make anything special if you order a quart. I did that with their mango jalapeno sorbet once (worth it!!).

Just wondering about the circumstances has now given me an irresistible craving for peppermint stick ice cream. This is going to derail my plans for the day.
