I need to add some adventure to my life. I tend to form mundane habits, and this is especially relevant to my eating styles. Once I try something, I stick with it because I know what I am going to get. This takes form in many ways. Like my daily scrambled egg breakfast. And in this case, ordering a sprinkled waffle cone with more sprinkles on top of my ice cream… I know… third time is the charm.
Hopefully the next time I present you with ice cream it will be in a bowl with hot fudge or anything other than sprinkles. GASP. But, back to what we have at hand. A couple of weekends ago, I went to see American Sniper, which was AMAZING. And before I went, I stopped by Emack & Bolio’s at their Fenway location. Situated right across the street from the movie theater it has a prime location, but it is too small to mingle inside. I ordered a medium waffle cone with Twisted Dee-Light, which is a chocolate based ice cream with brownies and fudge chunks scattered throughout. It was really creamy and had a strong cocoa flavor and the add-ins were delicious. However, Emack & Bolio’s is pricier than your standard creamery and the portions may be smaller as well. They are known for providing good quality and funky flavors and cool waffle cones, which can’t be found elsewhere. The vibe inside the shop is similar to Ben & Jerry’s with its quirky decor and whimsical flavor names. On the walls were all of the awards they have won since the store debuted in Brookline/ Boston in the late 70s. If you go to Emack & Bolio’s try one of their unique waffle cones topped with oreos or rice krispies and a cool flavor because that is what they are known for. If you just want a simple cone, go elsewhere, so you don’t bust your wallet.
