Over the course of the summer I managed to eat a plethora of delicious treats, and this post will give you the break down.
What started out as a food truck now has a brick and mortar location in Somerville, MA. Frozen Hoagies offers many different ice cream and cookie combos. I decided on the “The Hoagie” size, which equals two cookies and two scoops of ice cream. I ordered the peanut butter cup cookies with cow tracks ice cream (vanilla ice cream with a fudge swirl and peanut butter cups aka moose tracks) and of course… sprinkles. It was MASSIVE. The cookies were a little dry and cakey, but according to my little brother I like my cookies to be barely cooked, so that’s up for you to decide. It was a really cute place and had indoor seating that my cousin and I took advantage of.
If this is not the cutest sundae you have ever seen, then props to you. My sister and I decided to try out Scoop N Scootery in Arlington after plans fell through. Scoop N Scootery offers walk in store hours 3-7PM from Tuesday to Sunday. But their delivery and pick up hours are 3PM-2 AM from Tuesday to Sunday. We ordered pickup by going online and typing out our order on the website. We then got a confirmation email with an estimated time of completion.
I ordered the Peanut Butter Bomb which had peanut butter cup ice cream, chopped Reeses, chocolate syrup, a peanut butter shell, and then I added whipped cream and Kit Kats. The peanut butter shell was AMAZING. It did not harden completely like a normal chocolate shell does, but it was creamy and rich. The whipped cream was not your average Cool Whip and was perfectly light and airy.
The Goose Rocks Dairy is my old stomping ground, and where I worked for five summers of my life. I tell everyone that it was the best job I will ever have. Although I have sampled every flavor, this time I ordered the Campfire Smores; toasted marshmallow ice cream with a graham cracker swirl, and chocolate chunks. This is one of the dairy’s richest and sweetest ice creams. My other favorite is Moose Tracks; vanilla ice cream with a fudge swirl and peanut butter cups. I ordered the kiddie size in a waffle cone… Be warned our serving size is larger than most!
A traditional favorite, Cabot’s has been serving Newton-ites since 1969. They serve all meals of the day, but dessert is what you should go for. This is their “Hey you got chocolate on my peanut butter!” sundae. Moose tracks ice cream with peanut butter sauce, peanut butter cups, and whipped cream. (If you haven’t noticed, I love chocolate and peanut butter). Cabot’s not only serves up delicious and beautiful sundaes, but you feel like you are whisked away to another era. It’s an old school sundae parlor that is the perfect place for a celebration or just another hot summer day.
Toscanini’s is a well known ice cream shop located in Cambridge, and its cousin is Rancatore’s. One fateful night I walked in to discover they had FLUFF ice cream.
When I was little, I was addicted to fluff… I might still be addicted. I would make the classic fluffernutter to bring to school (bread, peanut butter, and Fluff), put Fluff on ritz crackers as a snack, and put it in my hot chocolate instead of marshmallows (it’s a game changer try it).
This ice cream tasted exactly like Fluff and had the typically sweet gooey marshmallow flavor and texture. Since it was so Fluff-y, when I ordered it a cone, the ice cream proceeded to dangerously slide off, so I quickly threw it in a cup to save it. I hope they make this a standard flavor because it was so amazing. The only thing that could have made it better was peanut butter, to make a fluffernutter sundae!
