Whitey's may be a Quad Cities favorite,  but apparently it's an international hit too, according to international travel magazine Conde Nast Traveler. 

The magazine's Twitter fans weighed in and rated Whitey's the best over several other shops in the U.K., Canada, and the U.S.

Whitey's has 11 locations throughout the Quad-Cities, Coralville and Iowa City. The company has been serving up shakes... Malts and more since 19-33.

Workers say they're proud of the status. "It's a big honor," 6-year employee Matt Teplaey said. "You know, our slogan is the 'best in the Midwest,' but to hear that it's the best in the world is really great."

The top five is:

1. Whitey's Ice Cream - Moline, Ill.

2. Negranti Creamery - California

3. Gelato Gusto - Brighton, U.K.

4. Melt Ice Creams - Fort Worth, Texas

5. Snugburys Ice Cream - Nantwich, U.K.
