    When the temperatures start dropping and winter begins to slowly sneak up on us, nothing is more appetizing than a hot bowl of chili or a steamy cup of hot cocoa. But don’t let these newly appealing hot foods and drinks make you forget about the delicious frozen treats you enjoyed all summer long. Louisville is home to tons of local ice creameries, and the holiday season is debatably the best time of year to sample new flavors.
