{phx} ice cream is everywhere here

June 23, 2009

Temps are going to hover around 106° all week! And it seems that because it’s ridiculously hot here in the desert, it’s OK to constantly crave sweet frozen deserts like ice cream, smoothies, frozen yogurt … I’ve never seen to many gelato places in one city! Actually, I didn’t even know gelato was such a big deal until arriving in phx.

But back to what’s more important here — a recent ice cream trip landed us at Mary Coyle, in existence for over 50 years and home of ice cream made the old-fashioned way. And the best part? Waffle cones and regular cones are the same price! So why would anyone order a regular cone? I don’t get it!

Seems pink is a big old-fashioned-ice cream parlor trend.

    1st off: icecream is good anytime..not just when its hot…even when its 60 degrees outside with windchill making it feel like 40. and 1 scoop costs only a dollar 50.

    2ndly: i’m sorry, mary coyle is overrated. my new fav spot is sugar bowl.

    Hellooooo dajie!

    I wish there were so many ice cream places here (though 106 degrees doesn’t sound fun). I went to Ben&Jerry’s tonight, but I’ve always one of those quaint parlors like in Arthur!
