|Mint Chocolate Chip with chocolate syrup and Peach Ice Cream from the Ice Box.|
I'm an ice cream lover from way back. In fact, I come from a long line of ice cream lovers. My friends crave it too -- and my little red poodle dog, Rosie. My all time favorite comes from the Ice Box in Cranberry Township, PA. It's rich and creamy -- the kind of dessert that makes you close your eyes and sigh. My cousin drives forty minutes for it. When Pat and her husband Everett come to visit, one of our first priorities is an Ice Box run.
Made on the premises with wholesome ingredients like cream, fresh fruit, nuts, chocolate, and coffee, there are many options to choose from. My husband Johnny goes for the banana or butter pecan or peach. Pat likes the strawberry with shaved dark chocolate. Her hubby Everett likes just about any flavor. Rosie and Luke the Detective Dog prefer vanilla. My favorite is mint chocolate chip.
Linda, the lady who owns and operates the Ice Box, uses local ingredients when possible -- so late summer and early fall are the best time for black cherries or blueberry or blackberry confections. In the late fall, Linda pivots to things like pumpkin pie or cinnamon spice ice cream. Yum!
