The Mister Softee Truck
Mister Softee Inc. was founded in 1956 and has been loved by all, young and old, ever since. You don’t need to walk very far in New York before stumbling across a truck, and if you live in the suburbs, just listen for that classic jingle. Inexpensive and always delicious, a classic vanilla cone with rainbow sprinkles is the way to go on a hot summer day in Central Park. If you’re a risk-taker, try the double – two cones conjoined together with any combination of soft serve and topping you’d like. The summer hasn’t officially started until you have a Mister Softee cone.
Made with only the purest ingredients, GROM creates beautiful, fresh gelato in a variety of refreshing and decadent flavors, all listed in Italian. Not to worry if you can’t decide on only one flavor – you can create any combination you desire. Choose from classics like pistachio or coffee, or try something out of the ordinary like Liquirizia (licorice) or Caramello al sale (caramel with Himalayan pink sea salt). GROM is so dedicated to staying fresh and natural that their website provides detailed information on gelato ingredients and their sources.
