In a couple of weeks, I am going to do a round up of all of the ice cream places I have tried in Rhode Island, and give them some sort of star rating. I have a couple more I'd like to get to before that, but here is another one to add to the list: Dear Hearts. Andy and I went to Dear Hearts I in Pawtuxet Village. It is quite a little place, with no room to eat your ice cream inside, so when you go make sure that it's either a nice enough day to sit outside, or you're prepared to do takeout (and wait the entire ride home to eat your ice cream!).
When I first walked in all I saw was the huge sign declaring how many soft serve flavors they have. They don't have their menu online, so I can't remember how many flavors there were, but I think it was somewhere around 100! In any case, I didn't need to peruse all of them to figure out which one I wanted. Peanut butter soft serve is one of the greatest treats of all time. I got my peanut butter soft serve with sprinkles, peanut butter cup pieces, and chocolate sauce. And it came in a huge cup, since all of their soft serve is one size only:
In the couple minutes this ice cream traveled from shop to outside bench, it got a little soupy on top but it was still very delicious. Nice and creamy! There is something about soft serve that makes it so much more palatable than hard ice cream, which also makes it easier to eat, and thus makes it gone faster.
Andy had a kids sundae, which was hilariously served in a baseball hat cup. They were out of Cardinals hats, so I forced him (he was not happy about it) to get my team- the Yankees:
He had oreo ice cream in his cup- but you can barely tell under all of that whipped cream! My favorite thing about this picture is not so much the ice cream, but that Andy is holding Yankees memorabilia. I may have just lost some readers here... :). I didn't try any of it, but he seemed to like it and thought that the kids size was the perfect amount.
