Every time my family drives up to Cape Cod, we stop at Friendly’s in Mystic, CT. Right off 95, it’s a time to stretch our legs during the 8-hour ride and it’s our marker saying, “you only have 2 more hours.”
But there’s a sweeter reason why my mom and I love this stop so. Black raspberry ice cream with hot fudge sauce!
One of my all time favorite flavors and one of my many favorite things about Cape Cod since there’s only one company where I can get pints regularly here in NYC (Adirondack Creamery) and at home, you can’t get it at all!
I know, I know, New Englanders don’t realize what they have.
So come Connecticut, I have it every chance I can while I’m up there savoring each and every bite.
What’s your favorite ice cream flavor? Do you have any food traditions while on vacation?
