Aero Fighters 2

Video System's 1994 title Aero Fighers 2 is a vertical-scrolling shoot 'em up cast in the mold of classics like 1942. Players choose from a variety of characters, including Spanky the talking dolphin and Bobby the "one tough baby". The writing in this game is incredible.

Tomorrow is Small Business Saturday, and we've got something special to share with you!

For the first time ever, we will be selling hand-packed pints of our award-winning homemade ice cream, scooped to order. We'll start selling them on Saturday for a special one-day price of $6 per pint.

As always, you can see the ice cream flavors we have on tap on our website to plan your visit. Stop on by and fill up the turkey-shaped void left in your freezer!

We've heard scores of people clamoring for it, and this week we finally made it: butter pecan ice cream.

Our ice cream base has been infused with butter and brown sugar to make it smooth and sweet. The pecans themselves are roasted in-house with a delectable coating of even more butter and brown sugar. Put it all together, and you've got something that will warm your soul on a cold day.

We're excited to partner with The Goat's Beard for Manayunk cocktail week! They've crafted a decadent beer float with our ice cream, which I'll let them describe in their own words:

"Now available every night this week for dessert - an adult float made with Tubby Robot salted caramel ice cream, Left Hand Brewing milk stout, homemade pretzel sticks, and homemade salted caramel sauce."

The nominations for 2018 Best of Manayunk are live from November 1 - 15!

If there HAPPENED to be a PARTICULAR ICE CREAM PARLOR you know that fit some of the categories, I'm sure the people who run it would be stoked if you put them in.

Y'KNOW. THEORETICALLY.

Our first specialty sundae for Autumn is here! The Hot Apple a la Mode is something we've been waiting to share all year.

First we peel and cut fresh apples, sautéing them with brown sugar, butter, and cinnamon. We pour them over a scoop ( or two! ) of our vanilla ice cream, then top it all off with from-scratch caramel sauce and whipped cream.

We take no responsibility if the shirt you're wearing spontaneously bursts into flannel.

It's decorative gourd season, Mr. Falcon!

We're enjoying the first day of autumn with a batch of our new Pumpkin Pie ice cream. Come on by and celebrate the equinox in proper fashion!

We just reached a milestone here at the factory: we've been open for six months!

It's been an incredible half-year, so we decided to make a little infographic with some fun stats to commemorate the occasion.

Our staff is taking a much-needed break this Labor Day weekend, so the shop will be closed on Saturday (9/2) and Sunday (9/3).

Tonight's your last chance to get your fix until Thursday!
