Latte-colored and flecked with chocolate, the tub of Graham Central Station ice cream at Applegate Farms (1401 Hudson Street) might not call out as loudly as the swirled cake batter or the mint-green pistachio. But ask to sample Graham Central, and you’ll learn it’s the best-selling flavor. It’s waiting for you – frozen bliss in a cup!
Then taste: a dense but airy bite, a deeply graham-y taste right out of childhood, and shards of chocolate-coated grahams for crunch. Good luck finding a better ice cream anywhere.
But the chocolate peanut butter cup and coffee toffee come close. Better yet, both of these flavors are actually frozen yogurts. Make no mistake—Applegate Farms is an ice cream shop with dreamy, decadent frozen treats. The chocolate and toasted almond flavors put the cream in ice cream. Even so, the yogurts are tasty. Fro-yo lovers will leave with a sticky smile.
Whether in a cone, cup or tub, one sweet taste will recall the kid in you.
