PennyLick, Hastings on Hudson, NY – We found ourselves in Hastings-on-Hudson when we were exploring the Old Aqueduct Trail which is where a pipe used to bring water into New York City from a reservoir. It was an interesting trail that led through several towns, including this one. We loved this town – it was along the Hudson River, with great views and a lovely downtown.
Pennylicks was a small shop with some of the best ice cream I have ever had. I had an extremely tasty scoop of Ethiopian Macchiato and a scoop of Maple Salted Caramel. The lady scooping the ice cream said that they make all their ice cream there, starting with the bases and moving on. Their preparation/flavoring techniques are a bit different than most places which what she attributed the great taste to. We sat at a window table and enjoying every mouthful. Oh – and this is a peanut-free facility.
