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!"

The owner of ice cream shop, GERENSER’S EXOTIC ICE CREAM, has decided during “EARTH HOUR” on SATURDAY, 3/28/09 that instead of turning off or dimming his lights, he is going to get EXTRA “THEATRICAL LIGHTING” and encourage ALL of his neighbors to turn on every possible light in their homes because he believes it is “ABSURD” and that Global Warming is based on “FAULTY SCIENCE”!? If you love the Earth, and you don’t want the oceans to flood your entire neighborhood then maybe we shouldn’t support this guy’s business. This man is 56, he DOESN’T CARE because in 20-30 years he’ll be gone, and he doesn’t have to deal with it, it’s US, OUR CHILDREN. And that’s when all the effects will be clearly seen. DON’T SUPPORT THIS BUSINESS THAT DOESN’T CARE ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT and would rather MAKE MONEY NOW, AND IGNORE THE CONSEQUENCES!!
