Our holiday menu has kicked into high gear!

We are now selling our annually-beloved Peppermint White Chocolate ice cream, which devotees can purchase as a half gallon for the first time ever.

Thanks to our friends at My Sweet Gluttony, we're also introducing Gingerbread Sundaes and Big Gingerbread Cookies. They are delectably soft and spicy, and we couldn't think of a better occasion to debut them than during the first snowfall of the season.

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!

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!
