Ice Cream + Flake in Woodside?

LoDega Jun 26, 2006 09:05 PM

Hi! Weeks ago my friend and I saw an ad for an ice cream + flake candybar creation and I don't have the foggiest idea where it was. The thing sounded so tasty, but we had somewhere to be. Has anyone tried this or do you know where to find it?

My best guess is this was somewhere around the 61st St. stop on the 7, but it really could have been somewhere.

Sigh. I could really go for one right this second.

Thanks,
Lo

    Was this for a prepared ice-cream? Growing up in Ireland we used to get a "99" from the ice-cream van. A whipped vanilla ice-cream cone with a Cadbury Flake stuck in. Delicious. Everyone had their own way of eating it - Wonder if they've made it into something you can buy from a freezer.

      If it is indeed a commercial ice cream product from Ireland then 61st St. just south of Roosevelt (and the 7 tracks) is a very likely place for it. There are a couple of small stores there that carry a selection of Irish food products, especially candy and snack foods.

        I'm pretty sure it wasn't a commercial product. But thanks!

        The place you remember is likely Tommy Malloy's on 61st Street between Roosevelt and Woodside Ave (closer to Woodside Ave). It's an Irish deli/butcher's with a red shopfront and usually even has a signboard for the ice cream/flake confection out front.

        I don't know if it's commercial though - the signboard made it seem as if they would put it together on the spot for you. Didn't try it myself since wine gums are my poison of choice.

          Thanks! I think you're probably right about Tommy Malloy's. This looked like something they'd make on the spot, and probably something I could make myself if I took a Flake to Carvel. I'll have to investigate post haste!!

          Thanks again!

            Actually, that's Tommy Moloney's at 39-86 61st Street.
