As Summer is coming to a close, one of the things that I will miss most of all, are the trips to Dairyland. For those of you that do not live in the Mansfield, OH are, you probably have no idea what I’m talking about. Well, let me tell you that Dairyland has been a family favorite of mine for as long as I can remember.
Dairyland isn’t your typical “dairy bar” shop, because it’s so much better. :) They do have the typical coneys, burgers, fries, onion chips, etc., but they also have deep fried pickles, pizza burgers, etc. The food always taste homemade and great quality compared to your average dairy bar. Most of their ingredients are purchased from local butchers and grocery stores. They also have amazing milkshakes! My favorite is the chocolate shake, with mint!
The fun thing about Dairyland? It’s a carhop-type place. Yep, just like those old-school places that you would have expected in the 50s. :)
All of the locals know exactly when Dairyland is getting ready to open and serve it’s goodness because the “famous” ice cream cone goes up! It totally makes you feel like a kid again when April comes around and that Vanilla Cone pops up!
If you’re ever in the area, do check out this local gem, because you WON’T be sorry! :)
