Swenson's ice cream?

Does Quincy Market still have Swenson's ice cream? Are there any others in the Boston area?

    I'm pretty sure the Swensen's ice cream in Quincy Market is long-closed, but someone else please chime in on that.

    If memory serves, Swensen's over-expanded years ago, the US corporation declared bankruptcy, and most if not all of the corporate/franchised stores closed down. The original is still open in San Francisco in the Russian Hill neighborhood, I think is still owned by the original family, and is a great place to visit. Swiss Orange Chip flavor is my favorite.

    There are also a lot of international franchises still using the name, but I've never visited any.

      The one in Fan. Hall is all star, or some other baseball themed place.
