The Picnic Basket (Cannon Beach Road Trip 2016)
Cannon Beach is a very touristy location… and there’s nothing more touristy than enjoying an ice cream cone while strolling through the quaint streets or beach.
The Picnic Basket (also known as Schwietert’s Cones and Candy) is located on the main strip in Cannon Beach so it’s hard to miss. If you have a sugar craving, this is the place to go… they have over 90 flavours of salt water taffy and a very big selection of Tillamook ice cream. If you haven’t heard of Tillamook ice cream, check out our post where we tried the 29 flavour ice cream adventure at the Tillamook factory.
I was only in the mood for one flavour on this day and settled on the North West Berry Swirl ($4.50 in a waffle cone).
The ice cream was just as good as I remembered… nice and creamy with a fresh tart flavour from the berries. Plus, it saved me from driving an extra hour to get to the Tillamook factory. There are a number of other places where you can get ice cream in Cannon Beach but this was the largest selection that I could find.
