I might be the world’s biggest ice cream fan. It is honestly an integral part of my diet. And I particularly love soft serve. I used to be a regular at a place in Pittsburgh that offered more than 20 varieties of soft serve, including such unusual choices as pistachio, pineapple and peach.
So imagine my surprise when I was driving on the other side of the state in Ridley Park, near the Delaware border, and saw a sign advertising 125 flavors of soft serve! It was my nirvana.
The place is called Chill Out, and their menu is extensive. I was really intrigued by the peanut butter & jelly flavor, but I opted for banana cinnamon. My friend Robin went with coconut custard pie, just because it was so ridiculous. The girl behind the counter even laughed when she ordered it. Because who orders coconut custard pie-flavored soft serve?
The ice cream was delicious and tasted just like the descriptions. I haven’t had a chance to return to Chill Out, but with flavors like peach cheesecake, Kahlua colada, and German chocolate cake, the place is calling me back.
Chill Out has a website that lists the parlor’s full soft serve menu at the bottom of the page. Which flavor would you eat?
