Soft serve ice cream may be popular around here, but The Snowman in Lansingburgh stands out for its homemade hard ice cream. While soft serve has its appeal with its tall cones and melting challenge, it’s the hard ice cream that makes The Snowman special. And if you want to experience it in a unique way, you must try their Boston Shake.
A Milkshake with a Twist
Milkshakes are a classic treat, but The Snowman takes it up a notch with their Boston Shake. Forget what you know about milkshakes in Boston; this concoction has nothing to do with the city. In fact, even the locals in eastern Massachusetts are perplexed by it. So what is it exactly? Well, it’s a milkshake crowned with a hot fudge sundae.
The Best of Both Worlds
Imagine sipping on a milkshake and enjoying a sundae at the same time. That’s exactly what the Boston Shake offers. It’s a delightful combination that allows you to experience the creamy goodness of ice cream through a straw and savor the flavors with a spoon. Truly, it’s the best of both worlds.
Typical sundaes can be overwhelming in size and melt quickly under the scorching summer sun. But with the milkshake acting as insulation, your sundae stays protected and enjoyable till the last bite. Even if some of the ice cream melts, it only enhances the flavor of the shake. And the possibilities for flavor combinations are endless.
Indulge in a Unique Treat
During my last visit, I couldn’t resist trying different combinations. I started with a strawberry milkshake topped with a vanilla hot fudge sundae. Then, I got a little adventurous by adding malt powder to a chocolate milkshake for an extra kick. As for the sundae, I opted for a coffee hot fudge sundae. The flavors danced on my taste buds, and I can’t wait for my next visit to explore more options.
The Snowman may not be fancy or gourmet, and it may lack shade or play areas for kids. But it’s the homemade hard ice cream that keeps people coming back for more. And if you haven’t tried their Boston Shake, you’re missing out on a unique and indulgent treat.
So the next time you’re in Lansingburgh, make sure to make a stop at The Snowman and experience the magic of their Boston Shake. It’s a treat that combines the timeless joy of a milkshake with the delightful flavors of a sundae. Trust me, once you try it, you’ll understand why everyone should get a taste of the Boston Shake.
