FANWOOD, NJ -- The signs of spring are abound as the last traces of March snow have melted and the daffodils what stuck their heads out of the ground. Another sign of the changing season is the return of Rocko's Ice Cream (38 South Martine Ave.) in Fanwood.
"I'm really looking forward to having the kids come back now that the weather is nicer," said owner Brandon Watterson, who gave TAPintoSPF a sneak peak at some of the new flavors that will be offered when Rocko's reopens on Satuday, March 16, at 11:00 a.m. Among the new ice creams are:
- Kettle Corn
- Magic Bar (Almond Joy with graham crackers)
- Rich and Famous (cookie dough swirl)
- Scotch-a-Roo (butterscotch, chocolate fudge and peanut butter)
- Vanilla Peanut Butter Ripple
Returning favorites include: Vanilla, Chocolate, Strawberry, Banana, Birthday Cake, Butter Pecan, Coffee, Cookies & Cream, Cotton Candy, Jolted Cow (Mocha chunk), Maple Walnut, Mint Chocolate Chip, Pirates Bounty, Pistachio Almondine, Purple Panda (raspberry chip), Rainbow Sherbert, and Rocky Road, among others.
Rocko's will also feature its popular Acai bowls with fresh fruits (mangoes, strawberries, blueberries, etc.), coconut, and homemade granola made at the Fanwood Grille.
"It's going to be fun. We're really looking forward to seeing everyone again this weekend," Watterson said.
