Guess Which Phoenix Ice Cream Shop Made Eater's List of the Hottest Ice Cream Shops in the Country?

Hint: It's probably not the one you're thinking of.

But before we tell you who it is, we'll take a moment to point out that the list of the food blog's favorite ice cream shops includes one of our own picks from our list of 10 crazy ice creams made by artisans around the country. For example, Chow Bella and Eater both have a thing for the folks over at OddFellows Ice Cream Co. in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where they're crafting awesome eats like the foie gras treat pictured above.

So where in Phoenix can you get some of the hottest cool treats in the whole country? If you ask Eater, the answer is at Roosevelt Row's new spot, Melt.

If you haven't made it over to Melt just yet, expect some pretty unique flavors scattered among more classic ones. There's vanilla -- if you're boring like that -- as well as birthday cake, cotton candy, cucumber and, wait for it, tamarind. All of their ice creams and gelatos are locally made, sourced from Udder Delights at Superstition Farms.

You can stop into this late-night sweet shop and get your ice cream in one of their homemade waffle cones or a waffle bowl. And according to Eater's list, you can also opt for a "frozen flower bouquet."

In case you missed it, Melt's ice cream also made our list of the best things our food critic ate this month. Maybe this new spot is hotter than we knew.
