KiwiBear - Claremont wasn't able to survive the frozen yogurt craze, but good old ice cream shops like Bert & Rocky's Cream Company are still going strong.
These photos are from April 2007. I know! What can I say? Things get lost in the queue.
Hmm. It's been so long I can't even remember where we ate beforehand, and you know how I like to keep track of when and where I've eaten and with whom I ate it. I at least remembered which friend I was with at the time. :P Anyway, after lunch with my friend, we stopped off at Bert & Rocky's for dessert.
She got a raspberry, although I don't know why I don't have that photo. So unlike me!
I got green tea ice cream. I've had Bert & Rocky's other flavors, mainly chocolate and the usual American flavors and enjoyed them, but this green tea was all wrong. I should've asked for a sample first, but I didn't think they could mess up green tea.
They also make their own chocolates.
And sell lots of other candies as well. I've never seen so many colors of M&Ms before!
And who in their right minds would want to eat candy rats or tarantulas?!
My dad bought me violet candies when I was a kid. I've rarely see them for sale.
