Peter Goldfarb sits watching his mother, who holds a textbook with one hand while churning cookie dough with the other. As she pulls double duty as a mom and graduate student, she unwittingly alters the course of her son's life. The young Peter will soon grow up, move to Los Angeles, and pursue a career in television production—but his friends won't care about his industry stories; they'll want to know where his shipments of ridiculously tasty cookies are coming from.
This true tale is what inspired Peter to eventually enroll in culinary school and coax his mom into cofounding Chip'n Dipped. Today, the duo and a crew of bakers make all-natural cookies, chocolates, and confections—including gluten- and dairy-free options—in full view of customers, as well as for impressed reporters from large publications such as the New York Times, Newsday, and the Candyland Gazette. Using kosher ingredients and minimally processed chocolates, the mom-and-son team creates treats loaded with bioflavonoids and free of hydrogenated oils and preservatives.
With its 14 flavors of frozen yogurt, flat-screen TVs, and comfy couches to relax on, Dollops Frozen Yogurt is one part frozen yogurt shop and one part café. Customers can stop in and fill a cup with blueberry or white-chocolate macadamia yogurt before taking a trip to the toppings bar, where more than 50 choices stand at the ready to dress treats. For health-conscious customers, Dollops offers nonfat options, dairy-free sorbet, and flavors with no added sugar.
A shroud of fog surrounds Nitro Ice Cream & Frozen Yogurt's staff members, who employ chilly liquid nitrogen to concoct smooth and thick custom treats in a futuristic-themed setting. The creamery—recently featured in the New York Daily News—invites clientele to experiment with combinations and invent vaccines against brain freeze using a wide range of flavors, colorings, and an unlimited supply of mix-ins. The process begins by choosing a base ice-cream flavor such as vanilla, chocolate, or mint, which can be prepared from soymilk, non-fat yogurt, organic ingredients, or sorbet. After choosing the coloring and mix-ins—which include oreos, Kit Kat bars, and gummy bears—the mad doctors transmute the ingredients into a creamy mélange with an industrial blender and a liberal application of liquid nitrogen, all the while shrouded in a safe-yet-spooky fog. Visitors can also expand their palate without stretching out their tongue by tasting eclectic fixtures such as the Bacon 'n Eggs—a nutritious breakfast of bacon ice cream and a candy gummy egg.
