Summer Food: The Tastes of Summer: Ice Cream

It seems ice cream alone is no longer enough to make us scream. This year, classic flavors get some help from the pastry case.

*At Twist Ice Cream Parlor in Paoli (39 East Lancaster Avenue, Paoli; 610-640-1800), vanilla gets gussied up with fresh blueberries and hunks of cheesecake.

*Pie crust pieces and vanilla icing are chilled with banana ice cream at Mount Laurel’s Lollypops Homemade Ice Cream (200 Larchmont Boulevard, Mount Laurel; 856-231-7677).

*At Reading Terminal’s Bassetts Ice Cream (12th and Arch streets; 215-925-4315), chocolate ice cream is mixed with caramel, chocolate chunks and peanut-butter brownies, a creation called Gadzooks!, from the prank-addled minds of WMMR morning DJs Preston and Steve.
