Sherbet is the proper term. "Sherbert" is a regional pronunciation that occasionally gets transcribed phonetically by those who don't know the proper spelling. It's kind of like writing "pahk" instead of park when you're from Boston.

Boy, I sound like a nerd, don't I?


Yes, you do, but you're incorrect. "Sherbert" is now accepted as a secondary but correct spelling, with its own pronunciation, by the latest editions of at least two of the most authoritative and respected American dictionaries (Merriam-Webster and the American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition).

All the musty old unabridged dictionaries on my desk, however, omit "sherbert," so I suspect it has only recently been accepted by the lexi-gods.

"Pahk," by contrast, appears in no English dictionaries that either of us has ever seen -- except possibly the Red Sawx Fan Dictionary from Bucky Dent Publications!

Yeah the pumpkin is great tasting their ice cream is creamy, great stop with the bike. Once you know all the flavors the walk up window is convienient. I just wish they had a bench out there.

I agree.... there's something about the outside appearance... the wood shingles and take-out window that says it's a good place. And it is.

Yes this place is great. I could tell from the outside it was a great place, cause it isnt focused on that commercial mess. I have made this a summer weekend ritual for over three years. And yes its been my quiet kept secret! Glad more people are getting to know about it, but dont want to fight the lines!! LOL..

I have never had a flavor I didnt like.

Hope you all enjoy...seems the secret is out!!Quote:

Jeez! Who knew! I've lived here for over 10 years and never heard of the place. Haven't had dinner yet but am now on my way out the door to Torico's...

There is a difference between sorbet and sherbert, beyond regional colloquialisms.

Sherbert contains milk where sorbet does not. So if the product has milk in it, it cannot officially be considered a sorbet.

Just an interesting tidbit.

The pumpkin is so good that you can't wait for autumn to get here so you have an excuse to eat more of it. also the coconut (which i normally dislike due to gorging on it as a child in my native country) is phenom!

This place is great, and one of the few places I've been able to find good cinnamon ice cream. Its unbelievable by itself, with apple pie or on a warm brownie.

I'd have to agree with the constructive criticism that they need sturdier "to go" pint containers. I have sent many a spoon through the current cheap styrofoam containers.

I agree - Torico's is excellent! I especially like the coconut, green tea and avocado ice creams. They are always experimenting with new, creative flavors.

Great- now all I can think of is stopping by and getting ice cream... I guess there are worse things that can happen

The tamarindo sherbet (they don't call their stuff "sorbet"--in fact, I think they say "sherbert", but I'll only go so far....) is fantastic. I've been working my way through their selection, last week getting to the guava and lemon sherbets. Both very good, the lemon oddly creamy. Unfortunately, they've jettisoned their chocolate ice for some reason--it was excellent! If I have a complaint, flavor-wise, it's with a general lack of intensity. The ube (purple yam) ice cream needs more ube-oomph; same with the langka (jackfruit).

I would like to see them change their pint containers to a decent material from the current cheap styrofoam (all too easy to plunge one's spoon through the side) and the tops to a stronger plastic (these ones tend to freeze and shatter when you try to peel them off).

But yeah, a wonderful place and every single person working there who I've encountered has been exceedingly pleasant.

Almost forgot, last Wednesday when it was about 180 degrees out there, a watermelon slush from Torico's was the only way I obtained the required fuel to plod the rest of the way home!

I agree - a great downtown establishment.

BTW - I once served the avocado ice cream with crabmeat as a first course - very elegant and delicious.

I am new to this board and I am not sure if peope have written about Torico's Ice Cream Shop, on 1st Street and Erie, but I thought I would give my two cents.

First of all the outisde does not have a sign and I never stepped foot into the place until I lived in JC for 5 years (that was 3 years ago). Even though it has the charm of a 1970's dairy queen, it has some of the greatest ice cream I have ever had. It is all home made and they have over 50 different flavors. Some of my favorites are pumpkin, peanut butter vanilla, avacado (not what you would think), and blueberry cheesecake.

The place is very clean and the people behind the counter are quite nice. You owe it to yourself to give it a try.
