Screaming for Ice Cream: Haunted Ice Cream Parlors

Since July is National Ice Cream Month, I thought it’d be fun to jaunt (even if only virtually) to some haunted ice cream parlors.

I didn’t actually know of any offhand, but look what Google turned up:

  • Reid’s Ice Cream Factory – According to Long Island Oddities, Reid’s wasn’t an ice cream factory per se, but more of “a warehouse for the company’s Brooklyn made product.” Rumors of a haunting sprung up from an exotic dancer killed there. It ended up being an abandoned property that was leveled in 2003. However, Long Island Oddities collected some really neat, creepy pics, as well as a story of a workman’s experience with unusual activity, on a jaunt to check out this alleged haunt. It was also investigated by Long Island Paranormal Investigators. They posted pics and EVPs they captured during their investigation. And I found mention after mention of a lady with no eyes who roams the road and grounds where the factory once stood.
  • Haunted Ice Cream Parlor in Cape May – In his blog post, “The Ghosts of Cold Spring Village,” medium Craig McManus wrote about a ghost he spotted at the ice cream parlor. Ghosts I should say. After he told the clerk helping them about the ghost, he was permitted to tour the upper floors of the house the ice cream parlor had taken over. That’s when he sensed another one, the ghost of a child.
  • Haunted House Ice Cream– I guess a company out of the U.K. called Lyons Maid produced these “ice cream bricks” in the 1970s. According to Wikipedia, the ice cream was white and wrapped up. You didn’t know if you were about to eat Frankenstein’s Monster, a spook, a skeleton, a spider and web, some bats, a wicked witch or a creature until you opened it. Sounds fun. I would’ve indulged in that growing up. (Heck, who am I kidding? I’d indulge in it now!)
  • Ice Cream and Scooby Doo – This is not a real haunt, but I’ve always loved Scooby Doo. This was a fun write up I came across that talked about “ice cream ghosts” Scoob and the gang stumbled upon at the Happy Humor Ice Cream Factory in one episode.

  1. I would have icecream with Scooby Doo too, lol. I’m not surprised that there would be haunted ice cream parlors. Some are old buildings with tragic histories, like you wrote about. I could go for a bowl of icecream right now, it is very hot here!

  2. Gives a new meaning to the term “cold spots” huh? LOL

    This was a great post, and not just because I LOVE ice cream!

  3. Julie, WOW! I remember hot AZ summers. And you guys seem to be having a doozie already. Ice cream is awesome anytime, but especially with temps like those! (And if there were a few ghosts, even better! 😉

    Mommy D: LMAO! “cold spots” Oh, how I wish I’d thought to incorporate that in, you clever, clever girl!

  4. OK, Courtney… Seriously? If you want to go ‘Haunt Jaunting; we should go together. I know of all sorts of ‘haunt spots’… including ice cream places. 🙂 Lets just say that my ‘reputation as being psychic precedes me!’ 😉 because everywhere I go, they want to know what’s going on. LOL!!
