What’s Dippin’ in the Well: A Rocky Return

The Co-op’s own handmade organic ice cream selection is reliable and interesting. We always have classic vanilla and chocolate flavors, as well as a rotating selection of seasonal f(l)avorites. Welcome back Rock ‘n’ Road, a staff favorite!

Here’s the method to the deliciousness: we start with a base of our own chocolate ice cream, then add chopped almonds and house-made, fresh marshmallow. The result is a nostalgic flavor harmony of rich dark chocolate, crunchy nuts, and creamy marshmallow. Plus it’s made without gluten. A bit of trivia about the inspiration for our Rock ‘n’ Road flavor: according to most sources, “Rocky Road” flavored ice cream was developed in March 1929 by William Dreyer and Joseph Edy in Oakland, California. They later named the flavor after the Wall Street Crash of 1929 “to give folks something to smile about in the midst of the Great Depression.”

So stop by our deli, where a scoop of organic Rock ‘n’ Road ice cream is sure to put a smile on your face!
