Best Ice Cream: Screw the Atkins diet
Tucker's Super Creamed Ice Cream
Who is that Atkins jerk anyway? When you get fed up with his torture and are in need of a defiant caloric coma, sample the menu at Tucker's Super Creamed Ice Cream. There's no better way to assertively abandon a fad diet. At Tucker's, simple basics like chocolate and vanilla are given the gourmet touch, and a rotating menu of seasonal specials -- including summer staples like lemon custard and autumnal faves like pumpkin pie and black licorice -- make the place a year-round destination. The rich stuff is made in small-batch freezers using fresh cream, seasonal fruits, nuts, and chocolates. If you're not in the mood for a cone, Tucker's menu of flavorsome delights includes a variety of options. Pick a flavor to fill a made-to-order ice cream sandwich, slurp down a Cho Cho (a kind of chocolate popsicle thing), or -- if you really want fill out that swimsuit -- dig into the monstrous four-scoop sundae, lovingly named the "Grandaddy."
