soft ice cream 1

To honor National Soft Ice Cream Day today, we actually indulged three times this weekend in Vermont and upstate New York. This tawny beauty above is a dip we'd never heard of before: toasted coconut, with chocolate soft-serve underneath, from Country Drive-In of Clifton Park, NY. The bits of real toasted coconut made for a wonderful textural highlight!

Our next specimen was an orange cream from the Farmer's Daughters' Drive-In of Saratoga Springs, NY. That deep orange color was real orange sherbet swirled with vanilla soft-serve, the latter of which perfectly tempered the sherbet's intense flavor. The taste was like a Push-Up bar from the ice cream trucks of our youth but with both flavors separated on their own sides!

Lastly, we enjoyed our default choice, the classic vanilla creemee (that's Vermontese for soft-serve) with a chocolate dip, at Seb's Snack Bar of South Hero on Grand Isle, VT. Located in the middle of Lake Champlain, Grand Isle doesn't have a great deal of eateries to choose from, but Seb's corners the market with burgers, hot dogs, fries, and creemees for every taste.

Niiice! Soft serve (and mini golf) just scream "SUMMERTIME!" to me.

It is called as "Softy", the name given for its soft cream textures. http://www.thertastore.com
