The secret’s in the combination
For seven years now, The Ice Cream Show has been keeping people happy at the foot of the Walnut Street Bridge (near the Hunter Museum of American Art), by offering a chance for you to create your own unique flavor from over 17,000 delicious combinations. Simply put, you are the master of your dessert destiny.
Start the process by choosing your base—chocolate or vanilla ice cream, or fat-free, sugar-free, dairy-free frozen yogurt. You then get to choose from over 40 ingredients, including fresh fruits, cookie crumbles, nuts and candies.
After you’ve picked the perfect ingredient combination, employees blend them for you in a special machine. You can eat it in a cup or one of their fresh-baked waffle cones. If you aren’t up for the cone or the cup, you can also choose to turn your flavor creation into a milkshake.
If you have trouble deciding on your ideal flavor combination, there are many pre-selected versions to choose from. The most popular is a combination of peanut butter, cookie dough, and Oreo cookie pieces.
The Ice Cream Show also offers 100-percent-fruit smoothies. Make one into a Summer Sleigh Ride by adding a scoop of frozen yogurt and whipped cream! They also have gourmet roast coffee and lattes you can cool down by ordering the iced option. Need a little pep in your step? Try out the Barrel Racer, their coffee shake with a double-shot of espresso.
Both indoor and shaded outdoor patio seating are available, great for enjoying icy treats on a hot summer day or hosting parties. They also offer free Wi-Fi, and gift cards are available for all the ice cream lovers in your life.
You can get the ultimate ice cream experience at 129 Walnut Street from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and from 1 p.m. till 11 p.m. on Sundays
