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.
Inspired by Italian Christmas cookies, we handcraft these cones from scratch and flavor them with anise seeds. To maintain a high level of festivity, we top each cone off with a ring of white chocolate.

To help you make your weekend a little more delicious, we're offering hand-packed pints of ice cream for just $6 all day long. Now is the time to stock up!
We're also upping our merch game and introducing Tubby Robot hats for the first time ever! We think they'd look pretty great perched atop the dome of the ice cream fan in your life. Our stock of enamel pins has been replenished as well, so like, just keep that in mind.
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 surprisingly 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.
In this episode of Tubby Talk, Terry, Steve, and Chris complete their dash through Sonic the Hedgehog's checkered history.

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!
