BRIGANTINE, N.J. - People who sit on the beaches of Ventnor, Wildwood, and Atlantic City - where the ice cream man will put his box down and hand over a banana Fudge Bomb without your even moving, except to find the money - might be shocked to learn that in Brigantine, people lack this fundamental Jersey Shore right. And that, for the most part, they do not care. But that, possibly as early as next week, when the City Council is scheduled to vote on a seven-page ice cream ordinance 15 years in the making, they could at last be granted the right of beach ice-cream sales.

If they had stuck a thermometer into the asphalt in front of Duffer's that afternoon, the mercury would have probably burst through the cap. An old basketball buddy had touted Duffer's as the best ice cream palace at the Shore, bar none, and we were certainly not there to prove him wrong. Sure enough, Duffer's (Hildreth and Pacific avenues, Wildwood, 609-729-1817) didn't disappoint. Duffer's, with its adjacent miniature golf course and game arcade, goes for the old-timey feel - Tiffany-style lamps, white-shirted waiters, goofily named sundaes.

It would be nice, at least from the standpoint of girth-control, to be able to unreel some spiel about how we should return to the good old days when ice cream was a rare treat, a dish for special occasions and a special occasion in itself. Goodness knows there's enough nostalgic writing about families' gathering 'round the churn, getting to lick the dasher, etc., to provide plenty of support. Unfortunately, it just ain't true. Ice cream has not just been enjoyed, but enjoyed rather routinely, for 150 years.

POPE FRANCIS may be one of the holiest men on the planet, but when he tastes the new flavor of ice cream that the dapper brothers over at the Franklin Fountain were asked to create for his meal at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary this weekend, he'll sure feel sinful.

I WAS a teenage soda jerk. Nowadays, I'm just . . . a vegan columnist. Obviously, I don't drink the cow-derived milkshakes I used to guzzle at the end of a shift. But I still love the creamy goodness of a tall chocolate shake, minus the original's sad backstory. Fortunately, as I've predicted in earlier columns, vegan ice creams are proliferating in Philly. I know, ice-cream cones are fun, but those of us who want to mainline ice-cream deliciousness know that the milkshake is the format that delivers.

On a spring day in 1990, Rockwell "Rock" M. Groves was eliminated. To trim the budget, SPS Technologies Inc., cut his high-powered, $120,000- plus job as vice president of industrial relations. When he got the form letter, Groves, 58, read it eight times - even though he already knew what it said. He had written it. SPS, a maker of airplane parts in Newtown, had begun downsizing after a drop in business. Groves had led the way as architect of the layoffs. Then he became the target.

Once Upon a Porch was an ice-cream parlor at Head House Square. It served wonderful ice cream, and people stood in line with their youngsters just to get a taste. But, unfortunately, Once Upon a Porch didn't live happily ever after. In its place, a new ice-cream parlor evolved. Which was good. Because if you felt like getting in some cool, creamy licks, you could now venture down to Head House Square and get some at Any Thyme. Alas, the new place didn't live happily ever after either.

If you're in the makeover mood and searching for ways to jazz up a family room, here's the scoop: Featured in Barry S. Slosberg Inc.'s gallery auction Sunday are nearly 100 lots of vintage ice-cream parlor memorabilia. They include stools, chairs, tables, a soda-fountain countertop, and a complete booth with two benches, plus signs for such brands as Dolly Madison, Hershey's and Abbotts; blenders, dispensers, and, of course, vintage scoops, a popular collectible. The memorabilia comes from three main consignors, says Slosberg associate Eric Cohen, "the bulk of it . . . from a guy who had set up a little ice-cream parlor in his basement.

Everybody loves ice cream. But this is about people who are passionate about ice cream. "Do you know what it is to have Bassett's French vanilla ice cream with jimmies on top and covered with real whipped cream?" a heart patient fantasized, struggling against the urge to cheat on his doctor's orders. "Believe me, if you have to have a last meal, you couldn't do better. " And for these passionate people, as the Dove Bar proved a couple of years ago, money is no object. Ice cream is a "feel-good" food, and while manufacturers are only too glad to put a price on feeling good, certainly no real ice-cream lover could.

Question: What the heck do you do when you and your partner have agreed to eat more healthfully, but then your partner regularly suggests impulse buys that undermine that decision? I don't want to be the person having a fit in the store because my partner's going down the ice cream aisle again, but if we've agreed in advance (many times) to not buy stuff that tempts us both, how do you deal with that frustration in the moment? Answer: "In the moment" is possibly the worst place to deal with frustration, offering the lowest chance you'll stay calm and say what you mean.

Rob Sigafoos had to give a lecture in Norway for his work with Penn Vet's New Bolton Center, so he and his wife, Susan Hankin, tacked on some time and backpacked. Another lecture the next year took him to Denmark, so the couple went bicycling. And when she was teaching in Portland, Ore., they took a weekend hiking trip to Mount Rainier. "It's an opportunity to go to a place that we might not have thought about otherwise," said Hankin, 56, a University of Maryland Law School associate professor who lives in Kennett Square.

The Berkey Creamery at Pennsylvania State University was at full throttle on a recent Friday morning. The Nittany Lions were playing Rutgers the next day - the second of five home football games in a row, something that hasn't happened in nearly a century. That means an extraordinarily high demand for "Peachy Paterno," "Alumni Swirl," and other frozen flavors distinctive to the oldest collegiate creamery in the United States, celebrating its 150th anniversary this year. On a usual day, the store serves 2,500 customers.

Over the Top, an occasional series in the Philadelphia Daily News, features local dishes that are so ridiculously delicious, so awesomely sinful, so, well, over-the-top, that they're worth obsessing over.   Last weekend left many Philadelphians feeling quite virtuous. Time to fix all that, with a Salty Pimp ice-cream cone from South Street's Big Gay Ice Cream . Ever since the NYC-based biz opened its Philly store in late April, fans have been streaming in for cake cones drizzled with own-make dulce de leche, filled with 4.8 ounces of organic-cream vanilla soft serve that's injected with more dulce, sprinkled with sea salt, and dipped into an all-natural chocolate shell whose recipe includes a dash of deliciously burnt-tasting cayenne.

What it is: Blueberries are supposed to be a super food. So they should still be good for you when they are enrobed in cream and sugar and frozen and made into ice cream, right? Let's go with that theory and talk about the blueberry ice cream produced by Royale Crown Homemade Ice Cream & Grille in Hammonton. Royale Crown, situated along one of the main Shore route alternatives to the Atlantic City Expressway, has been welcoming customers to its White Horse Pike (Route 30) location for 62 summers.

I didn't plan to buy a cone. But "just a taste please" turned into "whoa" and then "I cannot stop eating this . . . " at an alarming speed once I took my first few licks of this summer's edition of the Honeycomb ice cream at the Franklin Fountain. A large part of what makes it so amazing is the fact that it's a true "roof-to-cone" delight: The honey comes from the spring honeycomb of hives just upstairs on the Franklin Fountain's Old City roof managed by the Philadelphia Bee Co. But it's the sweet alchemy of the Berley brothers, co-owners of Franklin, that elevates this cone to magic.
