We all scream for ice cream, but rich creamy goodness isn’t the only fun frozen treat in town. Whether your little pints are clamoring for a scoop, pining for a popsicle, or just hankering for a giant bag of frozen popcorn, we’ve rounded up some of the coolest cool treats for kids in LA, no matter what they are craving.

Salt & Straw

If there’s one artisanal, chef-driven ice creamery kids can get behind it’s definitely Salt & Straw. The flavors concoctions are just wacky enough to be fun, but not so adult that kids won’t want to try. (Except sometimes, when it's Dill Pickle Sorbet, but just reading that option sends kids into fits of giggles, while parents swoon over unique taste bud treats like the Goat Cheese and Olive Brittle.) With new locations in Studio City and Venice and one opening soon in Downtown, there is officially an outpost within a short jaunt of nearly every neighborhood, making it the go-to spot for a weekend treat. Don’t miss the ever-changing assortment of inspired monthly flavors, like this summer’s Birthday Cake and Blackberries or Caramel Corn on the Cob.

Locations: Larchmont, Venice, and Studio City
