We cannot let go of summer, especially with the recent warm weather. And besides, we have to “bulk up” for the cold weather ahead. Here are some places taking advantage of the fall flavors.
Before Green Acres Ice Cream (4357 Broadway, Depew) closes on Oct. 9, be sure to stop in for apple cider slushies, shakes and smoothies, pumpkin pie parfaits, pumpkin pie ice cream, warm apple cinnamon sundae.
New this year, Anderson’s Frozen Custard locationswill serve the “Think Pink” shake for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The special cinnamon Oreo shake with whipped cream is decorated with a breast cancer pink ribbon. The event runs Oct. 1-15 and $1 from all shakes sold (not just the special shake) will go to support two local groups: For Our Daughters and Hope Chest. Shakes are $4.50.
For other seasonal ice cream, visit Anderson’s online “custard calendar” to see the dates locations are serving pumpkin custard. However if you are on a mission for pumpkin, you can be sure that the Williamsville (6075 Main St.) and Amherst (2369 Niagara Falls Blvd.) locations will have pumpkin custard throughout October. The month also ushers in a caramel pumpkin pecan sundae made with pumpkin ice cream, warm caramel sauce then chopped pecans at all locations. All stores also carry packed take home: pumpkin, caramel apple crisp and pumpkin cheesecake.
