Summer in the City, back of my neck getting dirty and gritty…what to do about that? Answer: Operation Cool Down! Last Sunday, the Mister and I decided we weren’t going to let the blazing hotness keep us locked in doors – no, we were going to beat Mr. Heat by fighting it with Ms. Sweet’s cool confectioneries on Sugartooth Tours’ Ice Cream Summer Sundays Frozen Treats Tour.

This six stop two mile long cool treats walking tour started in the Union Square area with a fruit pop at Chloe’s Soft Serve, a sweets shop known for their healthy frozen treats made only with real fruit, water, and a touch of organic cane sugar. I was skeptical that something that sounded so healthy would be good but YUM – the banana fruit pop was hearty, satisfying and tasted like I was eating a cooler version of a frozen banana.

Chinatown Ice Cream Factory! Haven been around for almost thee decades, this Chinatown landmark is home to my favorite ice cream flavor, Almond Cookie (also, the Mister has been going to Ctown Ice Cream Factory since he was a kid). Since this place is always packed, we got our mango and green tea flavored ice cream pre-packed and ready to go. While the mango and green tea were good, we had to head back in to end our tour the right way with a taste of the Almond Cookie.
