    Guests can select whichever flavor they want with the root beer, but the milk stout is just perfect. The boozy, creamy essence of the gelato marries seamlessly with the root beer, making for one divine sipper.

    My favorite flavor here is the PB&J, a decadent medley of vanilla frozen custard swirled with thick peanut butter and black raspberry jam.

    I like the birthday cake ice cream, simultaneously tasting on point with legit cake batter without bludgeoning you to death with excess sugar stimulation. This is whimsy in a cone.

    Margie's banana split with chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla ice creams, thick hot fudge, whipped cream, and crushed peanuts is still the best split in the city. The Beatles would probably agree.
