Little Baby’s Ice Cream knows that Restaurant Week is hard on hospitality industry workers, so the Little Baby’s team has decided to make these two weeks just a little sweeter. From January 18 to February 2, they’ll be offering half-off the price of any cup or cone (including single, double, or triple scoops) to any hospitality professionals.
Because the crew at Little Baby’s seems completely incapable of doing a normal thing when a weird option presents itself, they’re having an ice cream auction. In January.
The Franklin Flea Summer Market is happening this Saturday, August 16th, and it’ll be full of vintage pieces, music, and food. Oh so much food. In fact, this month’s event is the largest one yet, when it comes to the food.
We just got the lineup of the 13 vendors that will be satisfying your cravings and we’re not sure where to start. Maybe with the Watermelon-Basil Lemonade? Or the Pork Tacos with Pineapple Salsa? Perhaps the S’mores Cups and Chocolate Cupcakes with Strawberry Cheesecake baked in the center? The list goes on, so be sure to stop by between 10am – 5pm and enjoy all of the market’s offerings.
Franklin Flea Market will be located at the McCall Schoolyard in Society Hill. (325 S. 7th Street between Spruce and Pine Streets).
And on the 8th day, there were affogatos.
What is an affogato you ask? It’s basically the divine marriage of hot, caffeinated espresso with frosty, creamy ice cream. When translated, the Italian drink literally means “drowned” referring to the dollop ice cream swimming in espresso. Yum- said every caffeine junkie and ice cream enthusiast everywhere.
The good people at Elixr Coffee want all of Philadelphia to experience this mouth-watering treat featuring Little Baby’s Ice Cream. The collaborators will choose two seasonal ice creams skillfully paired with two unique espressos for the affogato days special. Other great news? There will be both a dairy and vegan option available so everyone can bask in affogato greatness.

Little Baby’s Ice Cream has debuted a new commercial, “Eyes Scream.” In it, mouths replace the eyes in three models as a voiceover extols the virtues of Little Baby’s Philadelphia style ice cream. The new commercial attempts to one-up the original Little Baby’s ads, which the Huffington Post called “terrifying.”

In case you haven’t already made plans for tonight, the
weirdos nice young gentlemen from Pizza Brain, Little Baby’s Ice Cream and Art In The Age are getting together for a “Third Thursdee” event in which pizzas and ice cream will be made and consumed. The pizzas will be spiked with Art In The Age liquors. As will the ice cream. And everything will be wonderful–provided you’re super into things like ham-and-pineapple pizza with ROOT glaze, RHUBARB and strawberry tea ice cream, SNAP and lemonade punch and cocktails made with fresh mint and sage-flavored liquor.
It’ll all be going down tonight, from 6-9pm, at Pizza Brain on Frankford Avenue.

Honestly, I didn’t know that affogato had a season. But when it comes to matters of ice cream and its manifold applications, I’ll trust in the wisdom of the professional weirdoes at Little Baby’s Ice Cream.
So here’s the deal: According to the LBIC crew, it’s affogato season. And they’re celebrating by wheeling out their official ice cream tricycle and sending it over to Hub Bub Coffee at 3736 Spruce Street where, tomorrow, Thursday, April 3, from 3pm-6pm, they’ll be selling scoops to all and sundry and giving away free single scoops (in a cone or cup) to anyone who orders an affogato from Hub Bub.
So why Hub Bub? Because Hub Bub will now be stocking Little Baby’s Ice Cream, for the express purpose of making even more affogatos.
So just how much do you love Little Baby’s Ice Cream? Enough to show up tonight for their first-ever ice cream auction?
Yeah, that’s right. An ice cream auction. See, it appears that the guys from Little Baby’s were going through the coolers and found a bunch of “rare, one-off, seasonal and out-of-print” flavors which they are planning on auctioning off tonight at 8pm at their Frankford Avenue shop.
If there’s a long-gone flavor that you’re just dying to try again, check out the list below. Who knows? You might just have one last chance to try that burnt sugar absinthe flavor that blew your mind and then disappeared from the menu forever…
