Treat of the Day: The Chocolate Bar

Our favorite dessert spot in Westfield is the Chocolate Bar, and we’ve been there many, many times. They sell gelato and all sorts of chocolate items, including chocolate covered brownies, chocolate covered pretzels, chocolate covered graham crackers, chocolate dipped pizzelles, chocolate dipped biscotti, almond bark, chocolate covered strawberries, truffles, gourmet coffee and more.

Treat of the Day: Gerenser’s Ice Cream

There are plenty of ice cream options in New Hope, PA. But the Gerenser’s “home made” sign got me. And then I looked at the menu.

-Thai ginger sesame

-African violet

-Cherries for George

-Ukranian rose petal


Treat of the Day: Ralph’s Ices

We first discovered Ralph’s when in Staten Island, eating at Denino’s Pizza. Ralph’s was just across the street. Since we’re relative newcomers to the East Coast, the concept of Italian Ices was rather new to us too. Turns out that Ralph’s is quite popular in the area, with many NY locations, and many in New […]

Treat of the Day: Little Scoops Ice Cream

This is the first of what will probably be many ice cream posts this summer – I have a big list of places I want to go! We went to Little Scoops in Cranford on the last day of school. We won a certificate for 5 free sundaes from a tricky tray (thanks, Little Scoops!) […]

Treat of the Day: Melt Bakery

the lovely Melt Bakery lady

We visited the High Line Park recently and happened upon the Melt Bakery cart on 23rd Street at the lawn. For the record, Melt Bakery to me sounds like a grilled cheese sandwich place. But it’s not. It’s an ice cream sandwich place. And it was yummy.

The kids […]

Treat of the Day: Dylan’s Candy Bar

I had so much fun looking at pictures of the Robot Candy Company, that I thought I’d do another candy treat of the day. This one is Dylan’s Candy Bar – have you been? More than just edible candy, they sell candy decorated clothing (cute PJs and rain boots), fudge, chocolate covered fruit, candy-inspired bath […]

Treat of the Day: Robot Candy Company

Okay, so this treat of the day you’ll have to travel to. It’s the Robot Candy Company in downtown Charleston, SC. We were there recently (by recently, I mean the day Hurricane Irene came through there, and two days before it hit the New Jersey/New York area). We were killing time before our plane ride, […]

Treat of the Day: Lemon Ice King of Corona

We were visiting the New York Hall of Science, and took a break for lunch. We had already passed the Lemon Ice King of Corona while driving to the science center and made of note of it so we could come back. So we did.

Treat of the Day: Je and Jo Ice Cream

My daughter and I were poking around the Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market on a day when it felt like, well, hell. You remember that 100 degree (plus) day? Oh yeah, there were several recently. Well we were sweating buckets while looking at crap used items, and we came upon a very sweaty vendor with an […]

Treat of the Day: Cliff’s Ice Cream

Here is the first in our occasional series we’re calling TREAT OF THE DAY. We’ll highlight a place for treats, mainly locally owned companies.

We’ve been to Cliff’s Ice Cream in Ledgewood twice now, and it’s a really fun stop. Plus, USA Today claims it’s the best ice cream in New Jersey.
