For $2.00 even you can get a small serving of ice cream – hard, fro-yo, soft serve. $2.35 for a medium. I forget how much the large is. I usually opt for the small, since Snow Man’s portions are quite generous.
I like the lines at Snow Man, actually. They go pretty quickly, but give you enough time to read the boards to see what you want to order. A float? Ice cream? Ice cream pie for the whole family? A sundae? Hmm… I noticed a sign that said “White Chocolate Macadamia”. Pshh, game OVER! It turns out it was for the fat-free low-calorie ice cream thing (I think it’s 8 delight… or something like that), which means that I can classify it as ‘healthy’ (Dad, I’m kidding).
For people that are familiar with and enjoy Tasty De-Lite, a low-cal/low-fat ice cream chain in the city, you will love this stuff! I won’t say it tasted like a white chocolate chip and macadamia nut cookie, but it had nice flavors of each, with a bit of that fake sweetness which made me think of the ‘cheesecake’ Tasty De-Lite flavor. You know – it doesn’t really taste like what it says is, but it’s pretty close, and whatever it is, it’s good. Man, I hope I didn’t just turn a bunch of you guys off from trying this stuff. Just trust me, it was good and it was really creamy too. I had a toddler begging bites off of me until that cup was gone.
I like the cup more since it’s a little more portable than the cone (and, well, I’m more than a little messy). Snow Man has a lot with some parking spaces. It can get busy, but most people walk in from around the neighborhood, so you probably won’t have a tough time parking in the lot. Or just park on the street. This ice cream stand in Lansingburgh, NY is in an easily accessible location, and very worth a trip (heck, for the creaminess and choices alone!). They even take Visa and Mastercard!
Oh, look. Early prezzies for one of the most glorious days in all the land from Manhattan Maka. Hello Kitty nesting bento boxes (bottom-ish) and Hello Kitty fork, spoon, and chopstick set in a cute hard plastic container (top-ish)! (they look like crap because I had to cut myself out, and I was so excited that I couldn’t sit still for any pictures. heh heh)
