MarketBasket: A Philly ice cream flavor

Posted: October 26, 2012

Goldenberg's Peanut Chews are the favorite candy of Jeffrey Ziga, co-owner of locally produced, small-batch Little Baby's Ice Cream. And the favorite candy of his mother and her mother as well.

So it was only a matter of time until he came up with an ice cream flavor with the local favorite mixed in: Vanilla Molasses with Goldenberg's Peanut Chews. It's a lovely combo in an old-fashioned kind of way, the molasses subtle, not overly sweet, echoing the old-school candy, which becomes crunchy when frozen.

"We're known for our outlandish flavor combos," Ziga said.

"But this candy has been around for over 100 years. We had to show them a little respect."

Little Baby's Ice Cream, $8 a pint, at their shop at 2311 Frankford Ave., and other local retailers.

A deck of discounts

A new take on a coupon dining book, this deck includes $10 discount cards from 50 locally owned restaurants. For $20, that means a potential of $500 in savings. Not all of them are A-list restaurants, but at least a dozen are more than worthy. So that's $120 in savings - if you use the cards, of course. Good till Dec. 31, 2013. Must spend at least $30, alcohol not included.

City dining cards, Philadelphia edition, $20, at Mugshots Coffeehouse, 286 Cambridge St., and other retailers, or at www.citydiningcards.com.
