Hitting the "sweet spot", our family owned Sweet Shop has served homemade ice cream, countertop classics – the sundae, the soda and the ice cream floats, chocolates and hard candy favorites – to our loyal customer base in Northport since 1929. Often noted for its hamburgers, and especially for its bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwiches, the Northport Sweet Shop is one of the few places where you can still feel like a kid in a candy store.
It’s National Ice Cream month
so I scream and you scream, we all scream for SOFT SERVE!
It has been said over Memorial Day weekend of 1934, Tom Carvel, the founder of the Carvel brand, suffered a flat tire in his ice cream truck in Hartsdale, NY.
He pulled into a parking lot and began selling his melting ice cream to vacationers driving by. Within two days he had sold his entire supply of ice cream and concluded that both a fixed location and soft (as opposed to hard) frozen desserts were potentially good business ideas.
Our Northport Sweets Shop already has a fixed location, and we recently installed a brand new soft-serve ice cream machine that is able to use the same old fashioned ice cream mix that we used in our old fashioned hand dipped ice cream.
So come on in and try a refreshing Soft Serve Chocolate or Vanilla Cone that is better than any soft serve you have ever tasted. If you can't decide, just get the best of both worlds and swirl it into a tasty twist, dipped into an endless choice of delicious toppings.
Chocolate Egg Creams
This old fashioned blast from the past has neither eggs nor heavy cream in it.
Start with about 2 ounces of your favorite chocolate syrup and carefully blend it with about 1.5 ounces of cold milk. Finally, add the carbonated water and build a nice head of foam as you slowly pour it. Serve in a tall glass with a straw & if the straw does not stand up straight, you didn't make it right!
