We received a small trial shipment of pretzel cones this weekend, and I have to say the jury is still out. I was expecting something sweeter, so their regular pretzel taste was surprising. However, they are growing one me after having had a couple plain. I guess we'll have to see how they are when the ice cream is ready.
After the April Fool's Day storm, the weather has finally turned! Good timing because we're just two weeks away from opening.
We could not have picked a better day to start our season. The weather is going to be beautiful, so come on by!
The Facebook fans have spoken! Our hot fudge cake sundae beat strawberry shortcake by a margin of 112-74 on our first Facebook competition of the year. We appreciate all the votes, and come by Saturday, mention the offer, and your hot fudge cake sundae will be half off.
Check out our Facebook page for more competitions, and generally awesome pics of ice cream. Beware of visual diabetes, as one of our fans put it.
Our first sundae contest is up on Facebook. The two competing are a couple classics; the strawberry shortcake sundae, and chocolate cake sundae. The winner will be 50% off this Saturday, so check out our Facebook page, and vote in the comments. We'll post the winner here and on our Facebook page this Friday. May the best ice cream win!
Chocolate cake, golden butterscotch, and vanilla ice cream. Bruins colors. We'd like to think it was the good luck charm responsible for the Bruins' run to the Stanley Cup Finals last year. This year, the Bruins haven't lost a game since it has been available. Just Sayin'.
Anyway, it will be $4 for soft serve, and $5 for hard ice cream going forward for the hopefully long run in these playoffs.
Thanks to everyone who stopped by yesterday. We hope you enjoyed being reunited with your favorite treat shack. It was a little bit chilly, and we know many of you were busy with your families, so we know we'll be seeing more ice cream fans this coming week as the weather warms up (according to the weathermen anyway).
August is ending with some great ice cream weather. Mid to high 70's, blue skies, and just enough humidity make for a perfect chance to enjoy this last week before labor day. We'll be serving up our regular menu until then, but when the weather cools down, we plan on adding a couple treats to help you transition to Fall.
With the help of some of our Facebook fans, we have created a new Red Sox themed sundae. Some of our fan's ideas were great, but not feasible. In the end, we decided to go with chocolate chip cookies as the main topping, and a mint instead of a cherry. The cookies go great with mint chocolate chip ice cream, staying with the green theme. Thanks again to all who commented on the original post.
With the help of our facebook followers, we are in the process of concocting a Red Sox themed sundae. Right now we are looking into getting chocolate chip cookies to be used as the main topping. The ice cream will likely be mint chocolate chip to represent the Green Monster. Let us know on Facebook if you have any ideas to help us!
We've been receiving a lot of comments on Facebook posts where we ask which ice cream you prefer. To reward your loyalty, and make these "contests" more interesting, the winning ice cream will be 20 % off once the "votes" have been tallied. We will, of course, announce which day the winner will be discounted. Thank you to all the voters!
So the Bruins bowed out to the Blackhawks tonight after giving up a 2-1 lead in the series and in the last game. You could be disapointed, but remember they made it further than most of us thought. This will also mark the end to our Hat Trick sundae price deal, though people will still be able to order it at the usual $5.50 during the offseason. We will be bringing a Red Sox special sundae next!
