This time of year always brings to mind the delectable taste of fine Mexican cuisine. The inviting flavors, the soul-warming heat, and a sense of true community lay at the heart of a memorable Cinco de Mayo celebration. I think you know exactly where this line of thinking is headed: we can't stop thinking about Chi-Chi's!

May it rest in peace.

We're bringing back our Fried Ice Cream for a limited time! We toss a scoop of our beloved ice cream in a pan-fried cinnamon and butter crunch, and top it off with a swirl of hot fudge, caramel sauce, and whipped cream. Supplies are limited, so get it while you can!

"Happy Easter!" to all observing and "Have a wonderful Sunday!" to everyone at large!

We'll resume our normal schedule on Wednesday.

As a precursor to the Easter weekend, we're bringing back Blueberry Buckler Sundaes!

Built upon the foundation of a toasted Blueberry Buckler Muffin ( baked fresh by our friends at My Sweet Gluttony ), this sundae is topped with a drizzle of honey that melds everything into a sweet, warm totality. Supplies are limited, so be sure to get yours as soon as you can!

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!
