Flying Saucers that are NOT chocolate or vanilla
- Jason "Nostalgia!" Perlow
Yup. I'm talking about the beloved ice cream sandwiches of my youth.
The other night I was cruisin Teaneck Road and I landed at the local Carvel -- and after I grabbed my requisite chocolate shake to soothe my bronchitis aggravated sore throat, I decided to bring home some Flying Saucers from their freezer case.
Sure enough, they had em, but only chocolate, vanilla, or vanilla with sprinkles. Huh? Now its been at least a good year or so since I bought saucers, but I destinctly remember at least from my childhood in Queens that flying saucers came in a MULTITUDE of flavors, including strawberry and pistachio, and coffee, black and white, as well as variations with nuts and crunchies.
I asked about this, and the owner shrugged and said that he wont make em because "the other flavors dont move as well."
Arrrgh! Does anyone know of a Carvel in the area that makes em in the other flavors?
