Warm weather days are here at last, and ice cream is a rite of summer!
To kick off Memorial Day Weekend, The Goodie Shoppe in New Fairfield is offering an extra special ice cream treat…
On Saturday, from Noon to 4 p.m., owner Marc Jayson, is inviting everyone to try 28 of the tastiest ice cream flavors ever for only $1.00 per scoop, cone or cup!
The reason is simple… Marc wants The Goodie Shoppe to be the go-to destination for ice cream lovers near and far this summer. After all, ice cream has become an actual “ice cream season!”
This hidden gem, located at the corner of Routes 37 and 39, serves up divinely tasty ice cream that’s proudly made by Buck’s Ice Cream of Milford, Connecticut, a family-owned business known for its premium ice cream.
Some of the best-sellers The Goodie Shoppe carries are certain to tempt the taste buds!
Try Toasted Almond that’s made with crumbled French Macaroons, Salted Carmel that’s just the right mix of sweet and salty, or Pineapple Coconut that tastes like a Pina Colada.
Of course, one can never go wrong with the “classics” like Chocolate Chip, French Vanilla, and Strawberry or the “pseudo classics” like Mint Chocolate Chip, Butter Pecan, and Cookies and Cream.
However, there’s always a new variation to sample like Ultimate Chocolate, Strawberry Cheesecake, and Black Raspberry Chocolate Chunk with Chocolate Swirl.
Many of the children’s favorites, and shhh, sometimes “adult” favorites, too, are Cotton Candy, Orange Cream, Peach, Cherry, Peanut Butter, Moose Tracks, and Cookie Dough.
As for the flavors that are the most popular with adults… Cake Batter, Cappuccino, Chocolate Hazelnut, Praline and Cream, Rum Raisin, and Fudge Ripple truly taste just like they sound!
For the more adventurous, there’s Swamp and Mud that, fortunately, do not taste at all like they sound, but are just rather “mixed up” and scrumptious!
And, Rainbow Sherbert is always a refreshing frozen indulgence, too.
Regular Price: “Home of the $2.00 Ice Cream Cone!”
Extras: 50 cents each – Chocolate chips, chocolate syrup, hot fudge, cookie crumbs, sprinkles, Reese’s pieces, whipped cream, walnuts, and waffle cones.
Additional “chilly treats” to try: Shakes, Sundaes, Pints, and Floats!
Address: New Fairfield Shopping Center, 1 Brush Hill Rd Ste 7 (at the corner of Routes 37 & 39).
Hours: Monday – 7 am to 11 am, Tuesday through Friday – 7 am to 9 pm, Saturday – 7 am to 9 pm, and Sunday – 8 am to 1 pm.
