Blackberry Brandy Ice Cream alert at Snowflake Riverhead, August 17

I wait all year for this moment. Polish Festival this weekend, which means my favorite flavor ice cream in the whole world. I was there yesterday and, while it was ready, they were waiting for an empty slot to actually put it out. Today it has arrived. Yum. Even my cat had a little (he's sleeping it off right now).

  1. Sounds divine! I always have trouble navigating to Snowflake.

    I remember one year reading the ad for some restaurant during the Polish Festival featuring a PuPu Platter with pierogis. I got a big laugh over that one.

      Snowflake is just down 25 from exit 72. Then pop back up Mill Rd to Rte 58. Polish Festival is fun, not that I make it there every year. Our favorite restaurant right now (Riverhead Project) seems to always feature lobster pierogies on their appetizer menu. I wouldn't have tried but surprisingly my husband did and they were pretty darn tasty!

    2. Coll, thanks for the heads-up on the blackberry brandy ice cream.

      It was outstanding!

      It was still in stock at 3PM on Saturday. We stopped by after attending the Polish Festival. It made a great desert.

        So glad you got there in time......I was talking it up with other people there who didn't know about it, after I ordered my own quart of course!

          Picked up a quart today... I did an "arrgh!" when I saw your post, since I'd found out it was available a short time before you posted and I'm coming from Nassau and wasn't sure if I could get there in time :)

            Glad you finally got some, he usually makes enough to last the weekend at least!
