Snowflake Ice Cream - Long Island NY - Sat, 02/16/08 10:03 PM

After a lovely morning spent trying to thaw out and repair a pump on an old boat, something that is oh so fun in 25 degree and windy weather, I thought...what a great day for ice cream. (As if there are days that ARE NOT great for ice cream!) So, with the heat set on high I drove over to[url='http://roadfood.com/Reviews/Overview.aspx?RefID=4337']Snowflake Ice Cream[/url], my favorite ice cream stop.

Once there I was greeted with this sign...



This concoction is their finest chocolate ice cream, with a green tinted marshmallow swirl, what looked like streaks of fudge, and yes, candy corn. This is view of the container...taken thru the glass so it loses a bit of detail...



and here is the dish my 6 year old son, and boat repair assistant received. Do you really think ANY 6 year old could resist something called Gopher Guts??



The flavor was surprisingly good!

I opted for the far more sophisticated flavor called "banana split". Vanilla Ice cream with bananas, cherries, and walnuts.



I ordered mine as a sundae, as I can't pass up the marshmallow topping, which is almost impossible to find any more in this part of the world.



I could have left this sitting out all day and it wouldn't have melted...but I did not!

Snowflake is a place for great ice cream and is well worth a detour if you find yourself on the eastern end of Long Island.

Just remember...

Greasy Grimy Gopher Guts is my ALLLLLL TIME favorite camp song

The flavor looked good too.

I agree with you Tony, never a bad time for Ice Cream!

Funny you should mention camp, because Snowflake Ice Cream is located about 5 miles from the summercamp of my youth. I have a lot of fine memories of that place.

Wow I haven't thought of that place in years. We used to go there when visiting my parents friends who had a house in Amagansett.

Word is that yesterday was the last day of the season for Snowflake until the spring. :( Sadly, I will have to rely on the goodness of friends who may have stored some in their freezer for my December visit.
