"Yum-Yum" Mon, 09/3/07 4:05 PM (permalink)
I grew up in North Jersey...and loved Italian ice when we all simply called it "Lemon Ice", no matter what the flavor was. I also remember a type of Italian Ice we all called "Yum-Yum" Is it just me and old age, or do any of my Fellow Jerseyites remember something called "Yum-Yum"?

    I totally remember "yum-yum" Italian ices. I also lived in North Jersey and used to go to a store called Kaye's Nut Shoppe, located on Central Avenue in Jersey City.
    There was nothing like the yum yum vanilla ice he made. And all of his other ices were by far, the best I have ever had too. Wish I could find some of his recipes. I am dying to have it again. But all  the searching has led to nothing. Can't even find a place that comes close to matching it. I sure hope he didn't die and not leave his recipes for someone else.
    If anyone remembers this place or these ices, please, please, please post for me now !!

          Glad you revived this old thread. Glad I found someone else who remembers Yum Yum
      .I sure loved that stuff!! I lived in Union City and went often To Central Ave in Union City. My Mom took me to two Ice Cream Parlors there, Meyers was one. Sold something called "soft cream"...not custard but almost like a soft whipped cream. No one else remembers that!!Ever heard of it?

        I was raised on Ralph's Creme Ice which sounds very similar to Yum Yum. Ralph's started on Staten Island & has been around since 1928...

        As far as the original Yum Yum...
