It’s been a while since my last Quick Byte post. What’s a better way to bring it back but on food that most people love, ice cream. With a hot summer like this, it’s a necessity.
On my road trip last weekend, I made sure to stop at one of my favorite ice cream shops: Sylas and Maddy’s. What makes it a favorite? It’s a small town shop that has homemade ice cream. There is a cornucopia of flavors. If you can’t find a flavor here you like, you should seek professional help.
When I go, I usually zero in on one that has one (or more) of these things: chocolate, peanut butter, or cheesecake. Maybe someday they will make one that has them all…hint hint. This time I went for the chocolate fudge brownie in a waffle cone. Always get the waffle cone. I don’t see how you can go into their shop, smell the fresh waffle cones, and walk out with ice cream in a bowl. It should be a crime.
As always, it’s rich, but not overpowering. The waffle cone is fresh and has a nice crunch. When you get to the bottom, and you will, you are rewarded with a malted milk ball. It was a great way to enjoy a sunny Saturday afternoon.
Dive 2 Five Scale: 3. It’s a very simple building with limited seating. The staff is very friendly and will allow you to have small samples of flavors until you find what you need. It’s a great way to cool off during some window shopping on Mass street in Lawrence.
