It's getting cold out there, but we don't mind a bit. We're open all year round, and this is our favorite time of year to serve the warmest, comfiest sundaes.

For your consideration: Hot Apple A La Mode, a fan favorite sundae made with fried hand-cut granny smith apples.

In this episode of Tubby Talk, Terry, Steve, and Chris dig through the many ways you can play retro games in the modern era. It's a suprisingly deep rabbit hole, with lots of options that balance convenience, price, and authenticity. Things get really sticky when you consider that "authenticity" is subject to interpretation.

Topics discussed include: emulation, display technology, retro hardware collection, game preservation, re-releases and compilations, and the psychology of nearly unlimited choices.

We did not sufficiently anticipate your desire for crispy, warm kouign amann sundaes last weekend. You bought them all!

YOU. BOUGHT. THEM. ALL.

To make it up to the folks who missed out, Sugar Philly has agreed to make us a fresh supply each day THIS weekend. God Save the Kouign: Part II!

Once again, bring your same-day receipt down the street to Sugar Philly and get 10% off any order of $5 or more!

We are thrilled to announce a limited-time collaboration sundae with our friends at Sugar Philly: God Save the Kouign!

For those who are unfamiliar with it, a kouign-amann ( pronounced "kween ah-MON" ) is a delightful pastry known for its crispy, buttery texture. It was once described by the New York Times as "the fattiest pastry in all of Europe", and that's a better endorsement than we could ever come up with on our own.

To create our sundae, we split a kouign-amann, toast it, and serve it up with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a dollop of whipped cream.

Hurry on by, because supplies are extremely limited and we're only serving these decadent treats through Sunday the 29th. If you try the sundae and find yourself wanting more, bring your same-day receipt down the street to Sugar Philly and get 10% off any order of $5 or more!

OK, we're a *little* early, but we just ate this prototype and we're too excited to wait.

We're serving a special sundae in collaboration with our friends at Sugar Philly this weekend. IT'S A BIG SECRET NOW but stay tuned tomorrow for the full details!

Today is MANAfest, which is Manayunk's celebration of the fall season. There's live music all day, a wide variety of fun activities, and more food and shopping than you can shake an autumnally-appropriate stick at.

As you might expect, we're contributing with what we do best: fall ice cream treats!

There are THREE seasonally appropriate items for you to choose from. First is our Harvest Apple ice cream, which is made from several pounds of baked and spiced granny smith apples. Second is our seasonal favorite Pumpkin Pie ice cream, which tastes exactly as you would hope. Last but certainly not least is the return of our beloved S'more Sundae, which pairs freshly toasted marshmallows with graham crackers, chocolate ice cream, and a drizzle of fudge.

We love this time of year, and we can't wait to see you on the street!

We know it's still technically summertime, but we're ready to move on and dive headfirst into fall.

To celebrate the upcoming season, we've introduced a new ice cream flavor: Harvest Apple!

Made with two sacks of minced granny smith apples and strong support from cinnamon and its spice cabinet friends, you'll be welcoming the return of flannel and long pants with open arms.

In this episode of Tubby Talk, Terry, Steve, and Chris dash into the world of Sonic the Hedgehog. This character hit some amazing high points in the 90s, but has had what we'd charitably call an inconsistent run in the two decades since. Of course, we can't talk about Sonic in the modern era with touching upon his powerful influence on the world of memes.

Games discussed include: Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic 3, Sonic and Knuckles, Sonic 3D Blast, Sonic CD, Sonic Adventure, Sonic Adventure 2, Sonic 4, Sonic Mania.
