No visit to Bassett’s Ice Cream at Reading Terminal? Very high butterfat= great taste.
There is so much to choose from at the Terminal that I could never get to all of the places I wanted to visit in one day. But for eight years, I lived only about two to three blocks from there and I bought almost all of my ice cream for home from the Bassett’s stand. They give you the option of getting hand-packed pints or pre-packed for the flavors that they produce on a larger scale for local stores. The hand packed cost more, but they keep pressing more and more ice cream into those containers until it’s really not possible to squeeze any more in there. There is no extra air in there. It’s all ice cream. I always went for the hand packed unless I was in a hurry.
Their moose tracks is tremendous.
