Last week we asked readers to vote for their . This week, we're asking you to vote for your favorite place to get ice cream/frozen yogurt in the Stoughton area.

The summer months are almost here, and while the weather has been dreary as of late, the crowds are already starting to flock to local ice cream parlors.

Voting in the poll below is open until 9 a.m. this Friday (May 18). We will announce the winner on May 18.

Because this poll is not scientific, it is not the sole consideration in choosing a winner. The winner will be determined by the Patch editor, based on poll results, (positive) comments on this article, and reviews on Patch Places. Please vote only once per survey, per Patch.

Below is a list of the places we’re including in the poll. Don’t see your favorite? Let us know in the comment section or by emailing Stoughton Patch editor Jeffrey Pickette at jeffrey.pickette@patch.com.

This should be a total no-brainer - a slam dunk win for Crescent Ridge with Daddy's Dairy or Hilliards a distant second. If any other result comes through, the voting is rigged.

First off including Burger King, McDonalds, and Wendy's in this is a joke. I'm sure Crescent Ridge will win but quite frankly I see that place as a tourist trap now. Their icecream has gone way down hill. It is still good but I find Hillards is a better choice.

Point taken, DarkKnight, although all three fast food places do serve ice cream, and those Frosty's at Wendy's are pretty good, although it doesn't stack up to the other true ice cream places in this poll.

Daddy's Dairy is definitely the best place to get ice cream :) Daddy's Dairy has the best ice cream in town! Plus, Daddy's had so many flavors to choose from! Over 180 Soft Serve flavors!! You can even get all the same flavors in frozen yogurt too! The girl scout cookie is to die for. They're all so delicious ! So many to choose from!

Daddys dairy all day! Best icecream in the randolph and stoughton areas. No competition!
Sarah May 14, 2012 at 05:51 PM
Tie between Crescent Ridge and Daddy's Dairy for me. Crescent Ridge is more fun as an outing- the kids love looking at the cows and its nice and peaceful to sit outside. But, the ice cream at Daddy's is really good!
MICHELLE May 14, 2012 at 06:14 PM
Im pretty sure that Patch wouldnt "fix" a vote!
Jeffrey Pickette (Editor) May 14, 2012 at 06:28 PM
Thanks, Michelle! :)
MICHELLE May 14, 2012 at 06:33 PM
....also i think Daddys Dairy is great for all that they do for the Town. The kids that work there a super nice and go above and beyond any other ice cream shop! but best of luck to whoever is the winner. Congrats to Daddys for being a new buisness and competing w/ CRD.

I honestly don't know how Daddy's Dairy is winning. Crescent Ridge has much better ice cream and much better service. In my opinion, it is far better than the rest and has a great atmosphere.

My family and i absolutely loved the ice cream cake i got for my sons birthday. Daddys makes the best ice cream cakes ever!

Daddy's Dairy!!!!
Katie B May 16, 2012 at 03:23 AM
My vote is for Daddy's Dairy, my first time there I ordered a bunch of stuff and I went to pay and didn't realize I left my credit card at my house. The woman manager there said not to worry come back when you can! Really who does that for someone? Super nice and my Frappe was amazing! However I do wish they could move to a bigger space with more parking, it's awful on 138!!

Crescent ridge is the winner daddy dairy is good but crescent ridge is better
Stephen Mack May 17, 2012 at 12:13 PM
I am the biggest Town of Stoughton fan around...but Crescent Ridge, is far superior to anything, especially Daddy's... When we first got married, (29 years ago) my wife and i would drive out to Crescent Ridge.....it is so ironic, (probably destiny) that we now live right around the corner from this place....we as a family tried Daddy's the second year it was opened...we all got different flavors, we all come to the same conclusion they advertise different flavors, but in reality, it's all the same flavor, just different color.... to carry that point further.... one had vanilla, and they describe it beautifully by saying.... it was simply a white COLORED ICE... no flavor at all....and we've simply never been back....i know someone mentioned it in an above comment... but one time we were heading to one of the kids came, and we wanted ice cream....we did stop at Mcdonalds as oppose to going to Daddy's.... I wish i were wrong, cause i'd always like the things in and of Stoughton to do well, and yes...the workers were incredible....very, very nice...but the icecream itself was literally tasteless....just colored ice....Crescent Ridge no doubt....not even close...Go Knights

My vote is for Daddys, and this is why...being a resident of stoughton I have never once seen a new buisness give back to the town like Daddys Dairy has. Just last week I heard that they gave almost 1000.00 to the people of a house fire. I love seeing the teams they sponsor all over town,(and they give them free stuff after games). All around I think they are a great buisness. With that being said this is addressed to Stephen I once ordered an ice cream that didnt taste like the flavor and i told the woman working and she remade it.( she also said some flavors are not as great as others) I can see the fond memories of cridge you and your wife share and think thats awesome, but being a Black Knight is doing things for your community and I think thats what Daddys Dairy is trying to do. But you are right when you say that the kids who work there are wonderful, because they are, and most of them are Black Knights! :)

I vote Daddys Dairy!
Melissa May 17, 2012 at 03:26 PM
Daddy's dairy is the best
Bonnie J. Nash January 19, 2013 at 04:04 AM
Orange Leaf in Cobbs Corner is the best!
