A Super Sweet Surprise Opens in Monmouth County, NJ
It's a busy time for openings in Monmouth County.
This news, however, is extra sweet.
Do you have a sweet tooth?
Yeah, me too.
Cookies, cake, chocolate, if it's got sugar and it's in front of me, I'm devouring it.
All in moderation though, right? Sure.
I left a sugary treat out.
Ice cream, or as I call it, kryptonite.
It truly is a huge weakness of mine that is made even more difficult especially when we are surrounded by so many amazing places to grab a scoop or two.
Newsweek published the 15 most popular ice cream flavors in America.

When it comes to ice cream, the Jersey Shore has a lot of competition.
Whether it's inland, or at the beach, there are plenty of perfect parlors that will serve you a sundae just the way you like it.
Who would be crazy enough to try to compete in this ice cream landscape? Three words.
Fudgie. The. Whale.
You can't beat tradition, and Carvel has a lot of it.
A new Carvel is now open in the Shoprite Plaza in Neptune.
The owner posted today on Facebook:
Carvel Ice Cream is now open. We apologize for the delay in the opening as it took almost 16 months. We are now up and running and offering delivery via Uber Eats, Door Dash, and Grub Hub. Please stop by if you are in the area.
