Our last stop of the day was about 6 minutes away, not even enough time to begin composing a post.
Stock’s is a walk-up window stand that sells some food, frozen ice, soft serve, and scooped ice cream. Because of COVID, it was difficult to see their flavors, as the information was mainly on the walls inside, behind the order-windows and sneeze guards.
Gregg ordered an Apple Dumpling Sundae. As described, it was an apple dumpling with soft-serve vanilla ice cream on top. The apple dumpling was not bad (too sweet for me). The soft serve vanilla was tasteless.
I ordered a Peanut Butter Delight. I think it is typically made with soft serve ice cream but at the last minute, I peeked inside, seeing the labels on the ice cream case and spotted peanut butter ice cream, which. I requested instead of vanilla. It was a good choice. The ice cream had peanut butter swirls through it.
The peanut butter ice cream was in a clear plastic cup and layered with hot fudge, peanut butter sauce, and peanut butter cup chunks, topped with whipped cream and a cherry.
I couldn’t even eat half of mine. It is melting in the cupholder, waiting to sleep in our freezer to see what new creation is formed for another day.
This was our least favorite ice cream of the day, and not just because we were past our ice cream quota for the day/week. We found nothing special about it.
Ratings on a scale of -5 to 5:
- Creativity: 1
- Flavor: Soft Serve -2, Peanut butter 2
- Texture: Soft Serve 3 (dense and cold), Peanut butter 0 (like store-bought)
- Temperature: 4
- Selection: 0 (I saw via my photo that they have 12 flavors of scooped ice cream, but we couldn’t figure that out because of social distancing. )
- Type: Soft serve and hard packed/scooped
- Worth the Drive? -5 (Nope, we probably passed dozens of other ice cream stands today that would have been just as good or better.)
