Tour de Soft Serve

Saturday Heather and I accompanied Daniel B on his 2011 Tour de Soft Serve (read all about it on his blog!) Pretty much, he started a local tour of the popular soft serve joints in the Capital Region. I had to get on that!!!

Heather and I practiced moderation all day. We split a kiddie size soft serve ice creams at each stop, no toppings, no cones. We even brought some resusable cups and a spoon to reduce waste.

There were a total of five stops on the tour. The rules were we had to order a twist and if we went with a topping (we didn’t) it would have to be consistent. There was even a score card!

1. On the Farm – the first one always tastes pretty good! I was a fan.

2. Guptil’s Coney Express – Tasted a bit similar to On the Farm.


3. Country Drive In – no kiddie cup, only cone, so Heather and I split it. I think this one was my favorite. It was “fluffy” and the vanilla kind of tasted like whipped frosting.


4. Kurver Kreme – my least favorite, the line was long and the I couldn’t tell much difference between the vanilla and chocolate flavors.

5. Jim’s Tastee Freez – they were all tasting the same by this point!

I think I’ve had my share of soft serve twist ice cream for the season. 😉 Heather and I figured out we probably only had equal to a size medium cone at most of these places (some of the bigger servings were huge!)

Overall, it was great fun! I loved trying all the different ice cream. And a big thanks to Daniel B for organizing the 2011 Tour de Soft Serve!

  1. I’m not a big fan of soft serve ice cream, I’m a hard ice cream girl, myself, but this looks like a fun day! Of all those you went to the only one I’ve had was The Country Drive-In, I grew up going there, and loved it, but their servings are huge! The only place I make sure to go to once during the summer is a place called Rob and Debs frozen dreams, in Glens Falls. If ever up in that area you should check it out!

  2. Ohh that looks like so much fun! On Saturday I went to the new sixteen handles place (16 fro yo flavors!) in Clifton Park- it was awesomeeee! You definitely have to check it out.
