Vs. Super Mario Bros.

Nintendo's 1986 title Vs. Super Mario Bros. is an arcade conversion of its smash-hit NES game, Super Mario Bros. The game plays similarly to the original home version, but many of its levels have been altered to be more difficult or replaced entirely.

As unveiled last night, here is our 2020 holiday light display!

We're competing in the "Manayunk Gets LIT!" contest, and if you like what you see we'd appreciate a quick vote for our display. The whole street looks INCREDIBLE right now and we highly recommend checking it all out in person!

We're also planning to add more sequences to our light show. If you have any ideas you'll like to see illuminated in 1,000 bulbs, let us know!

November 28, 2020

It's Small Business Saturday, and we can't wait until the sun goes down to show off the 1,000 bulb display we've been working on.

Today we're offering the lowest prices of the year on take home half gallons at $19. Now's a great day to stock up!

It's time for Harvest Apple ice cream!

We prepare this seasonal favorite by baking locally-sourced apples in a bath of brown sugar, butter, and various spices. It perfectly complements autumnal weather, and it gets even better when you coat it with our from-scratch caramel sauce.

Underground devotees of MySweetGluttony's Hundo cookies have been quietly amassing in Manayunk, and we're happy to supply their fix. You can now obtain the soft, fudgy deliciousness of Hundos at Tubby Robot!

Named for being a prodigious 100 grams of pure cookie, Hundos help make your whole day just a little bit brighter.

We're approaching the end of pumpkin season and verging on the border of apple season. Come get our fresh pumpkin pie ice cream before the fell Granny Smith comes a' reaping!

Today we're unveiling a brand new EXTREMELY limited flavor!

Pawpaw is a little-known but delectable fruit that is native to our own backyard, and it only ripens for a few weeks every year. It tastes like a cross between a mango and a banana, featuring surprisingly tropical overtones for something that was picked in the greater Philadelphia region.

We managed to obtain just enough to make a single six-gallon batch, so this is definitely a first-come, first-served situation!

In this episode of Tubby Talk, Terry, Steve, and Chris discuss their favorite video game villains and which characters still haunt their sleepless nights. We also discover that Terry is very likely the last person on the Internet who has not been exposed to "the cake is a lie" memes.

Villains discussed include: Ganon, Dark Link, the Dark Queen, Wario, GLaDOS, Dr. Wily, Krang, Mike Tyson, Dr. Robotnik, Mother Brain, King K. Rool, Hulk Hogan, Lavos, Magus, Giygas, Andross, Pigma, Reapers, Dr. Breen, and Shang Tsung.

Our scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should.

Today we're unveiling our latest sundae: the COOKIE DOUGHVERLOAD. A mini-scoop of homemade (egg-free) cookie dough is paired with the ice cream flavor of your choice, adorned with our classic hot fudge and whipped cream.

Congratulations to all students and teachers starting a new school year! We hope this sundae helps take the edge off.

It's Thursday night, and that means it's time for ice cream sandwiches! Stop on by while visiting Stroll the Street and get your scooped-to-order sandwich made with fresh cookies by My Sweet Gluttony.

The pictured sandwich was made with Chocolate Covered Strawberry, which makes for an excellent pairing if we do say so ourselves.
