If you're yearning for Chocolate Chip, try Purity's Bittersweet. It is just as good as I remember if from my younger years. Excellent vanilla base with "flecks" of excellent bittersweet chocolate. So much better than chocolate "chips". Mmmmmm...

Hi finfun.

Bittersweet (and its cousins Mocha Chip and Mint Chocolate Chip) use the same, pretty unique process for getting those impossibly thin "shavings" of bittersweet chocolate. We introduce hot, liquid chocolate into the stream of cold ice cream mix as it heads into the freezing process. That collision "shatters" the cooling chocolate into what you see in those ice cream flavors.

Definitely a Purity tradition!

Went for dessert after a light meal. Just wish I could go back again. Maybe next visit to Ithaca. Their baked goods looked great also. Maybe next time instead of getting my small junior dish of ice cream I will skip dinner and go for a sundae. Service although lines seems long they are speedy and efficient. A must to do when visiting Ithaca.
