Even though it’s a chilly winter evening in phily, there is still a long line at this popular ice cream shop. The pink decor is very flashy but not obnoxious.
I was taken aback from the super long list of toppings. We came here because we had a $20 living social deals and I have never spent so much on ice cream before so the mathematically oriented Asian part of my soul decided to do some quick math to calculate how many toppings to get to fulfill the $10 of my portion of the gift certificate.
I estimated about 6 topping for my large butter pecan ice cream. Now this next part might sound gross but it kinda worked: bananas, chocolate chip cookie dough, Heath bar, snickers, brownies and butterscotch syrup. When I told the girl behind the counter that I had the living social deals gift certificate she understood. The next part shocked me: she put my ice cream and assortment of toppings in a blender type machine that looked like an oil drill and out came my potion of ice cream mess. I totally didn’t see that coming! I had never been here before and so was not familiar with this technique. My ice cream had become a frappé. I guess this made it easier to eat.
Since Joe wasn’t as Asian as me and just ordered moose tracks in a waffle cone we had some $$ left to spend so we got a quarter pound of the almond butter crunch (w toffee in the middle) which was delicious!
