What's the difference between hard and soft-serve ice cream?

Soft serve ice cream has less milk fat and more air than harder ice cream. If soft serve ice cream has the right amount of air, it will have a whitish color. When air is added, the ice cream becomes fluffy and the large molecules allow it to reflect white light, which gives it a white color. This white color means the ice cream is of better quality than soft serve ice cream with less air. Hard ice cream is usually served at -12 degrees Celsius. Soft serve ice cream is served at -6 degrees Celsius. A difference of only 6 degrees makes soft serve ice cream much softer and creamier

My thoughts...great to see Kohr's getting some love! It's nice to see them representing the Jersey Shore in the top 5. Other Jersey Shore spots on the list... Rich's Original Ice Cream in Toms River was #16 and Jersey Freeze in Freehold was #18. Only 3 Monmouth & Ocean County towns were represented... okay enough is enough...

REALLY?!?! YOU KIDDIN' ME?!!? HAS ANYONE AT NJ.COM EVER EATEN THE VANILLA SOFT-SERVE AT STROLLOS IN BELMAR?! Even though the Strollos in Belmar is most known for their mouthwatering Italian ice, it easily has the best soft-serve in the state. Strollos, hands down should be in this "top 29 list". I mean... not even a mention?!?! Not even on the list that's before the list!

Unreal... I'm at a loss for words...

Belmar Be On The List? Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
