If you’re looking for a new ice cream shop to try, you might want to listen to what other people have to say. People often trust the opinions of their friends and family when it comes to ice cream, because they know what they like and what they don’t.

For example, imagine you’re with a group of friends on a sunny day, and one of them suggests going to their favorite ice cream shop. They tell you how delicious and smooth the ice cream is, and how friendly and cozy the place is. You decide to go along and see for yourself. And you’re not disappointed – the ice cream is amazing and the shop has a nice atmosphere.

That’s what we did here! We asked our community for their top picks for ice cream in Gran Canaria and here are their responses. As you can see, there’s a lot of variety and preferences, so why not try them all and let us know what you think in the comments!

Please note that these are answers and recommendations from community members and their personal experiences. Answers can be slightly edited for clarity.
