Ice Cream: Gerenser's and Mary's Dairy
I have to admit it, we've been eating a lot of ice cream this summer. In Princeton, we're pretty lucky to have three great places -- Thomas Sweet's, Halo Pub, and the Bent Spoon -- and I actually do go to all three depending on what mood I'm in. My friends and I used to joke that just about all there is to do on a Friday or Saturday night in Princeton is get ice cream and rent a movie.
Another town that I can't go to without stopping for ice cream is New Hope, PA, where Gerenser's is the place to go. They have all sorts of exotic flavors on the menu like African Violet, but I'm always a little disappointed in these.
Instead, I stick with chocolate peanut butter. Redneckhunter's brother (above) is enjoying Turkish Coffee, and redneckhunter himself stuck with the classic vanilla chocolate chip.
The last time I was in the city, I stopped into Mary's Dairy. I did not indulge, but petitesoeur ate herself into ice cream coma with a scoop of Dulce de Leche and a scoop of Killer Chocolate. The Mary mascot is cute too -- what she's saying in the sign is "Bipolar? Bicoastal? Bisexual? Who cares... BUY ICE CREAM!"
