Does Maple Walnut ice cream exist anymore in NYC?

With all these fancy ice cream places popping up, it's hard to find the tried and true flavors that you remember having as a kid. Case in point: Maple Walnut. I live in Park Slope and neither Uncle Louie G's nor Haagen Daaz nor Maggie Moos scoops this flavor! I'm not looking for Double Chocolate Raspberry Peanut and Cashew Avocado Garlic Caramel Swirl. I'm just looking for plain Maple Walnut! Is that so much to ask? And you would think that Ben and Jerry's being from Vermont and all would carry this flavor, but they don't. Let's get back to basics here, people. Can anyone tell me of a scoop shop that carries Maple Walnut?
I'm going nutty just thinking about it.

    2. Isn't maple walnut a Carvel flavor? I've only ever seen it at Carvel's.

      1. Emack and Bolio's sometimes has it.

          FYI, I walked by Emack & Bolio's on 1st Ave. betw. 81st and 82nd today and noticed that they do have Maple Walnut currently, but I would call before making a substantial trek.

        2. Maple Walnut is a favorite of mine. If you're willing to trek to Princeton, NJ, you can find it at Thomas Sweet.

            Isn't there a Thomas Sweet in New Brunswick? It's a bit more convenient from NYC.

              njeggy1, I didn't know that, but you're right! I didn't think to click on "Locations" on the website, but doing so now shows four:

          2. Hinsch's in Brooklyn has it occasionally too. Straight shot on the "R", less of a pain than Staten Island.

              where is Hinsch's? in bay ridge?

              Thanks for all the suggestions! I will go on a Maple Walnut tour galore. I can't wait.

            2. Since places outside of NYC have already been mentioned, I think Van Dyck's in Ridgewood, NJ has it -- or at least they used to. It was my grandmother's favorite flavor. That's a little closer than New Brunswick or Princeton, I think.

                Ah thanks. My boyfriend's folks live in the next town over so we'll have to try it. He was talking about that place this weekend b/c the sign outside said something like "homemade again" b/c i guess it wasn't for a while but now it's under new ownership or something. Have you been there this summer yet?
