One of my favorite things growing up is when we would approach our exit coming from school and on my favorite days my Grandpa would say, “should we stop and get a blizzard?” or “I think we really need some ice cream today”. I would eagerly await and see if he said it or if we would just go home. But the days he said it were the absolute best! Conversations are best served over ice cream.These days I live from from any Dairy Queen but Princeton offers a good substitute in The Bent Spoon.
The location is right in Palmer Square across the street from the University and its always packed! There’s virtually no seating indooors but its perfect to grab an ice cream (or sorbet) and walk around the square and peruse the shops.
Why is it that ice cream sounds good in freezing temps? We braved the outside bench for a while until it was just too frigid to enjoy.
They offer up crazy concoctions (cardamon cinnamon), old faithfuls (vanilla salt caramel or mint chocolate) and new spins on things (NJ honey ice cream..) You can check out what flavors they are currently rotating by checking out their Twitter.
