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.

Today marks our 4th birthday, and we're ready to celebrate! For one night only, both owners Steve and Chris will be serving ice cream together just like in the early days.

We're also presenting a new twist on a classic Tubby Robot original: Mini Ice Cream Hoagies! These miniaturized delights are baked from scratch in our shop, and as a limited-time treat you can buy them individually for $2 or pick up three for $5.

UNPARALELLED THANKS go out to everyone who has supported our shop during these 4 years. Whether you've visited once, buy sundaes every week, or trudged out in the frost to buy pints in the dead of winter, thank you. We wouldn't be here without you, and we pledge to keep pushing the envelope of frozen deliciousness for years to come.

After a dark, cold winter, Belgian Waffle Sundaes have emerged to herald a return to the light.

We're geared up for a big week as folks come out to enjoy the weather and remember what sunlight feels like on their skin. Stop on by and make sure you're making the most of it!

We have a very special treat in the shop this weekend: The Blueberry Buckler Sundae!

The Blueberry Buckler is a coffee cake muffin topped with streusel baked by our friends at My Sweet Gluttony. We toast it until it's nice and warm, pair it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and top it with a drizzle of honey. Quantities are VERY limited, so grab it while you can!

Apologies to all the snow warriors out there: we are closed today! Weather permitting, we'll be back at it tomorrow.

My Sweet Gluttony has been working overtime. In addition to Life by Chocolate muffins, we have a brand new cookie in stock this week: Vanilla Chai!

Come pick one up for the tea-loving cutie in your life; Valentine's Day draws near!

This is an excellent week for showering the one(s) you love with indulgent treats, and we have quite a few in stock to help you out!

From our friends at My Sweet Gluttony, "Life by Chocolate" is a TRIPLE-chocolate muffin topped with homemade chocolate ganache. We've been actively coveting them since they've arrived and we promise we're doing our best not to eat them all.

It might be getting colder outside, but we're warming things up here at the Factory. We're bringing back our Hot Apple a la Mode sundae, which is still stubbornly made from scratch with hand-cut granny smith apples.

If you'd prefer to take something home, we're still selling half gallons through the entirety of the Winter season. We also have a fresh batch of Hundo cookies from My Sweet Gluttony!

Today is your last chance to pick up half gallons and big gingerbread cookies!

We currently have half gallons available in 11 different flavors, along with take-home hot fudge. If you're looking for the soft, chewy goodness of My Sweet Gluttony's big gingerbread cookies, you can get four of them for just $12 today.

We're open today until 9pm, at which point we'll be closed until January 2nd, 2021. Happy Holidays, everyone!

Our final batch of Peppermint White Chocolate is now being served! This one moves fast every year, so please come as soon as you can to stake your claim. It's available in both our hand-scooped menu and take-home half gallons.

Speaking of half gallons, we have a brand new take-home menu filled with items you can eat in your cozy home at your leisure!

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.
