Flavors Homemade Ice Cream, Fairfield, New Jersey
Open all year
You never know what you will find in New Jersey’s large shopping malls – tonight we went shopping in Willowbrook Mall – and it was bring your pet to see Santa night. The first time I ever time I got to see a huge dump of dog crap in a mall – even more disturbing was the footprint in it – some poor soul did not know to avoid landmines in the mall tonight. But before we stepped foot in the mall, the Scoops Gang went to check out a new ice cream parlor in town, – just down the street from the mall. Notice our cool new shirts designed by my niece Katie (available on Teerepublic.com)!
Flavors Homemade Ice Cream in Fairfield, New Jersey is a fairly new entry into the ice cream arena – the shop opened earlier this year – score one for the Garden State. The shop is attractive with lots of frozen treats – gelato, Italian ice and a wide variety of beautiful-looking ice creams. I took the recommendation of the barista and had a scoop of Cookie Monster (Chips Ahoy and Oreo cookies in a vanilla ice cream) and a scoop of Cake Batter. The flavor and texture of the ice cream was just right – I loved it. Pat got Coffee Cake Ice Cream which she said tasted just like the crumbs on coffee cake – the part that you eat before you throw the cake out. I do not know what Mary Lou had. Seating was outside for days warmer than today and inside at a bar with bar-type chairs that went up and down – fun for kids like us. This place is worth a visit!
