I can't wait for a taste of their avocado ice cream ... the best!

Also, I've never found them to be chintzy ... when I buy a pint they actually over-fill the container.

for many years i scooped ice cream and made cakes at magic fountain on the boulevard (which originally was a carvel.) an ice cream shop opened on india square (kwality ice cream i believe) and knocked us right out of business. everything we did was homemade so going to torico's reminds me of those days, just a bit pricier.

there's still amourville on central ave in the heights, but they seem to be more cake oriented than cones/shakes.

they're renovating. they had the architect plans up inside before they closed for the season. the drawings were gorgeous. hope the actual results are the same (and not like the Newark Avenue Streetscape fantasy).

the owners of Toricos have owned that entire building for decades, so staying closed for months won't torpedo them financially like it did Ox.

It's just not worth it, one scoop and your done. Very hard to sustain a business like that and make a profit at the same time. Bring your ration card when you go next time.

really? They're prices are pretty standard, and they have a lot of great flavors. Better than any carvels or crap like that.

There's Tommy Two Scoops, but that's gelato. And they do milkshakes, but it's super runny because it's gelato.

I peeked in the other day and it doesn't look anywhere near complete. Wooden frames and stuff but absolutely no finishing going on.

I like Maggie Moo's in the mall - very rich and creamy and tons of great toppings. Reasonably priced.

If you want a healthier option where you create your own dessert, OYO Yogurt in Hoboken rocks!!! You are given a cup to fill with yogurt and toppings on your own. They weigh it and you pay 55 cents an ounce. There's 4 yogurt flavors you can combine any way you want. The toppings include fresh fruit, candy, cookies, granola, nuts, coconut....

Yeah I think so - they said that they weren't going to change the inside that much, mostly just exterior and the upstairs space.

Just a heads up to all you Torico lovers out there - this weekend's the last days of the season before Torico's closes for renovations and winter. Was in there Sunday and they're already out of a lot of flavors.

Does anyone have any idea when they're opening this year? Now that the weather's getting a little better I'm beginning to crave some of their rocky road...

Toricos, what's up? I love you, the home-made ice cream, and the staff. But you're going light on the scoops. I just paid five bucks for a thimble of chocolate ice cream. What gives? I may have to start frequenting the shady joints in Journal Square. Is this just an unfortunate coincidence or is this new policy? Has anyone else noticed a difference?


Maybe it's time to reconsider the practice that used to be followed by old time vendors of homemade ice cream -- charging by weight!

In the days when ice cream was packed fresh by hand in local stores, the counter staff would weigh each container and charge by the weight. So whether your packer had a tendency to "scoop air" (roll scoops that weren't solid) or really packed it densely in those old waxed cardboard containers -- you paid for the ice cream you actually got!

BTW, am I the only one here old enough to remember having ice cream weighed??? LOL!!!

I agree that the JC shop rite sucks. This is why I shop at the one in Hoboken or Millburn after work.
