From banana-nut to cinnamon, Choo Choo's features a rotating selection of flavors. The dessert designers at Choo Choo's will start by scooping a generous helping of your favorite flavor onto a frozen marble slab. Next, they'll liberally mash in all your handpicked add-ins, eliminating the existential crisis of boring bites. Gummy bears, cookies, fruits, and nuts sprinkle the selection of 33 mix-ins. Children will delight in Choo Choo's treat transportation as ice creams make the rounds on a train chugging around to the cash register. Single scoops start at $2.50, or try a caboose creation with two scoops and three mix-ins served in a homemade waffle bowl ($3.99). Spoon-shunners can slurp up liquid treats with a Wow Shake ($3.99).
If Tom Carvel's ice-cream truck hadn’t had a flat tire one fateful day during Memorial Day weekend in 1934, he may have never started the country’s first retail ice-cream company. Faced with losing his entire supply of ice cream to the heat, he simply sold it from the side of the road. He was so successful that, years later, he opened his first store on that same site. His ice cream shops soon sprang up across the Northeast, and Tom cemented his place in business lore as the father of one of the country's earliest franchises. The Carvel brand now runs shops in 25 states, where servers layer their famous chocolate and vanilla ice-cream cakes with crunchies and whip up batches of their soft-serve ice cream each day to create cones, sundaes, and shakes.

Sugar and Frosting strikes the perfect balance between sweet and savory with its lip-smacking baked goods, extensive candy selection, and gourmet popcorn. Made fresh daily with real butter, cupcakes come in more than 50 flavors such as vanilla butterscotch and berry cobbler. The inventive flavoring also carries over to the bakery's popcorn offerings, which include buffalo ranch as well as confetti, a perfect choice for throwing into the air to celebrate a special event or really terrific movie.
The Marble Slab Creamery sensory experience begins by just walking past the storefront, where the buttery scent of fresh-baked waffle cones drifts out into the air. Once inside, cans of gourmet ice cream, crafted on site from Marble Slab’s original French recipe, entice the eyes with a rainbow of colors. Once clients have made a flavor selection, they choose from a smorgasbord of mix-ins, from fresh fruit to nuts to candy and crumbled cookies, which an ice cream chef then hand-folds in atop a frosty marble slab before packing the finished custom-designed flavor masterpiece into a house-made waffle cone.
In addition to procuring hand-held treats, Marble Slab Creamery can send creations home in a variety of other formats, such as ice cream cakes, cupcakes, and hand-packed quarts, or in the capable hands of a catering team that arrives at events with portable marble slabs or sundae bars in tow.
