It seemed a little contradictory for the Wayside to be serving homemade apple pie with store-bought ice cream. Our delicious apple pie has been enjoyed for generations by many loyal customers.
How can we improve on such a popular dessert? We considered adding more fresh apples, another pinch of cinnamon, sprinkling more sugar on the flaky top crust. Then we realized that we better not mess with success (2 pounds of apples per pie is enough!). How about serving it a la mode with Wayside-Made ice cream! It made all the sense in the world.
After months of research and development (and many tubs of delicious factory seconds) the Wayside settled on its Signature Vanilla recipe. From there other amazing flavors have followed:
|Coffee||Pecan||And more to come!|
Every day the Wayside has its Signature Vanilla and Chocolate on the dessert menu. In addition, there are two flavors featured daily made FRESH every week.
Please be forewarned: Wayside-Made ice cream is NOT available for take-out. Customers are encouraged to eat their way through a home-cooked Wayside meal and top it off with a wonderful Wayside-Made ice cream dessert.
You can however, come in and just have dessert! With Wayside-Made ice cream even the milk shakes and fountain floats taste better. Even the peanut butter ice cream pie has been taken up a notch. The sundaes crowned with salted caramel, chocolate, strawberry, Vermont maple syrup and hot fudge toppings are the best.
If you’re feeling a bit nostalgic and want to reminisce about the Wayside’s longstanding history, try a Signature Vanilla champagne float! The bubbles, the cream…enough said.
