Cones By Design, Stanhope, NJ – On Friday evenings, I go to fife practice. There are numerous ways that I can get there, and I mix it up – the path I took tonight led me to an unexpected treat – an ice cream shop that I had never been to before! This was a chilly night – which felt particularly cold because we have had such a warm winter. My guess is that ice cream was a hard sell today.
Cones by Design had cakes for Valentine’s Day and an ice cream counter. I loved the big penguin painted on the wall – it gave the shop a festive atmosphere. I choose two of their seasonal specials – Superman and Raspberry Blast. The Superman was a brightly colored mix of fruit flavored ice creams with mini chocolate candies – I figured Raspberry Blast would match nicely with it – and I was right!
