Last night, S felt like he wanted ice cream. Old fashioned ice cream.
We had recently visited
after our day with the boys at the National Museum. The menu was jazzed up and they served…croquettes, ice cream cake, and well, jazzed up ice cream. And the place looked modern.
But well, since we heard that the people who were running the original Magnolia Ice Cream house had just moved across the street from the Creamery, we decided to check them out, and last night was the night!
So, with S, K, Beautiful Mom, we trooped to Aurora Blvd, and I tell you, we weren’t disappointed (except for one thing–later on that).
Called Parfaits and Splits, it was right smack across the Creamery. There was a small place for children to play, had an ice cream counter and the ice cream menu was practically what you guys would remember. Anyone remember the ice cream called Ernie and Bert? (But we didn’t order that…)
Here’s what Beautiful Mom ordered, a strawberry cobbler
S ordered a strawberry parfait
K’s was a clown waffle with a scoop of vanilla instead of strawberry
And I had a vanilla shake. I was sad though because they didn’t have wax straws. (Remember those???)
This was the menu–
It was pretty good. Brought back memories of old. Even how Magnolia’s formula never changed–like how the consistency has always been “runny” and not that dense, and how it didn’t seem cold enough. But it was comforting and nice.
We’ll surely go back pretty soon.
