You’ll also find several flavors that aren’t available in most stores, as well as pints to help you stock your freezer. The menu includes sundaes, milk shakes, sorbets, and smoothies. You can order your scoop in a waffle cone, bowl, or even a waffle bowl (gasp!). Whatever you decide, don’t forget to grab the napkins.
