February Flavors

A field in New Jersey grows organic red raspberries.  The farmer freezes them for times such as these.  We went and picked them up & churned them into this transformational delight.

Back by popular demand, this roasted nutty flavor reminds us of staying in while it’s cold outside.

option11Craig Laban Loves Our Toasted Marshmallow Malted

“The amazingly delicious chocolate malted shake came from the Franklin Fountain, which was remarkably jam-packed this past weekend despite the freeing temperatures.  They’re so clever about making-up cold-weather concoctions, like this shake, which gets topped with a marshmallow on chocolate and graham cracker torched to order… The Franklin Fountain is one of Philly’s culinary treasures.  Take any out-of-towner there any night, and they will be impressed with the commitment to quality and craft (not to mention olde Philly ambiance.  And even though it was freezing out, and I’m supposed to be trying to eat a little more healthfully this month…sluuuuurp!  That malted was pretty much gone in a minute.” –Craig Laban
