    yes. ice cream is good and the batting cages, mini golf, etc. add to it. Mocha & Coffee flavors are great.

            I love their mint chocolate chip, which has *giant* chocolate chips. I wish they wouldn't dye it green, though.

            When at Richardson's I also like to pick up their milk. Their 1% tastes like 2% to me, and right there at the dairy they sell it at absurdly low prices.

                Mediteraneo..the gyro place on Washington St.DowntownXing...actually in the old Filenes building sells their ice cream. I like their pumpkin and apple crisp..available seasonally, coffee, rum raisin,pistachi. I don't think thet have all the flavors...but rotate maybe a dozen or so.

                        There's a fairly new burger place in Beverly at Beverly Plaza. I think it's Big Bully's. They have EVERY Richardson's flavor! Good burgers and great fries, sweet potato fries and onion rings too.

                        My favorite is their rocky road or french vanilla. I also buy their 2% milk which is creamy, better than the supermarket brand milk and locally produced. I like to support the Massachusetts dairy farmers!

                          Tollhouse Cookie but only from the Middleton or Reading stores, where the cookies are still sort of crunchy. They have the right level of turnover, or make small batches, I guess. At the other places that sell it, the cookies are mushy.

                            Any of their lowfat flavors. Used to take the label off so my (now ex)boyfriend wouldn't know he was eating healthier. Never guessed...
