SC , as we called it in my family when the children are little so that they didn't know what we were talking about, is a Cheshire classic.

Always a treat. Homemade ice cream. Homemade hot fudge and whipped cream. Toppings of your choice or plain and delicious. Family environment. Meet your neighbors or friends you haven't seen in awhile there. Sweeeet. A bit more $, but it is a treat.

My family has been spoiled by Sweet Claude's. between my grandson and wife, they each got a triple flavored large ice cream cone. I last them a good hour. The next day they want more of the same. You'll be back in March when sweet Claude's reopens
