As my loyal readers already know, I have a little weakness for ice cream. Just a little (read: if it doesn’t involve ice cream, it probably isn’t really dessert in my world)….
On our most recent visit to Long Beach Island in New Jersey, we finally found the time to visit the renowned Show Place Ice Cream Parlor, where the talented singing wait staff find a way to get you into the act while serving giNORmous sundaes.
- Of course, our ticket to entry depends entirely on whether or not they serve sorbet. Thankfully, they list two on the menu (that’s two more than most places), although I discovered they only had one flavor upon arrival. Bummer.
- But on the plus side, Show Place does segregate the food allergy-related orders from the regular orders in another part of the kitchen.
- Furthermore, I was told they will scoop a food allergy-related order directly from a new container and add toppings (such as sprinkles) from their original cartons to eliminate the possibility of cross-contamination.
Although I was disappointed with the flavor selection, my son ensured me that his orange sorbet was fabulous and ate every drop to prove it. I was happy with the procedure Show Place had in place for their food allergic patrons. And, the show was so entertaining! There’s no place like it, so if you find yourself on or near LBI, you really have to experience it firsthand.
