Having grown up on Cape Cod, I consider myself an expert in these matters, as there were at least five different ice cream shops within walking distance of my house. So, as an Ice Cream Expert™ I love the new addition to Bears Den 32Degrees! For the purpose of this review and in no way because I have a problem, I tried a milkshake, a root beer float, and a villa sundae, and wow-oh-wow was it tasty.
Let’s start with the milkshake! I refrained from reading the menu, as most of the ice cream shops I have known can make almost anything on the menu into a frappe. I walked up to the cashier, cutting two of my friends in line (sorry), and with a bold confidence, declare “Oreo Frappe, please.”
I then got a weird look and a “sure, we can do that.” Despite the fact that this item technically did not exist there, it was so freaking good. The shake was the perfect level of thickness, and the ice cream tasted like it was freshly made. Of course, Oreo’s are always good, so that helped. Reminder for all, this item is not on the menu. I am the only student that will ever taste the deliciousness of an Oreo Frappe made at BSU!
After finishing my shake, I ordered a root beer float to drink with my pasta. Let it be known, a root beer float in itself is not groundbreaking thing. However, this float was definitely top tier. The hardest thing about making a root beer float is the foam spawned when combining soda and ice cream, and to my delight this float had very little foam. My one complaint is, although it was a good float, there wasn’t anything to elevate it from your basic float.
Lastly, I got a vanilla sundae, which served to confirm that 32Degrees is worth its sprinkles. If the vanilla ice cream is bad, then there’s no hope for the others. 32Degrees’ vanilla is incredibly light and works perfectly on a sundae! I now fear for my dining dollars.
Overall, if you have a few dining/flex dollars to spare take this Ice Cream Expert’s™ advice, and get yourself a frozen treat at 32Degrees!
My rating: 8 (non-existent) Oreo Frappes out of 10.
