Sonic the Hedgehog (Mega Play)

Sega's 1991 mascot title Sonic the Hedgehog was converted for the Mega Play arcade system in 1993. It pulls the same visuals and high-speed platforming game play from the beloved home version, but only contains 4 zones and features an arcade-friendly time limit element.

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.

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!

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.

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