FANWOOD, NJ – Rocko’s Ice Cream (38 S. Martine Ave., Fanwood) has become a go-to destination in downtown Fanwood for an evening treat, birthday parties, post-game celebrations, fundraising events, and other special occasions.

On Sunday, July 1, the ice cream story will celebrate its own special occasion: its second anniversary. Throughout the day, Rocko’s will sell $2 soft ice cream cones with one free topping. Additionally, Rocko's will offer $2 off its popular açaí bowls that the store introduced this month. 

Açaí (pronounced "Ah-Sigh-EE") bowls are made from pureed and chilled açaí berries that are grown in the Amazon rain forest. The bowls include toppings such as strawberries, bananas, mangos, honey and coconut.

"The bowls have been a huge hit since we introduced them," said Rob Watterson, co-owner of Rocko’s with his brother, Brandon. "Açaí berries are rich with vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants. The bowls are a delicious, healthy dessert that are really taking off."

For those looking for hard ice cream, Rocko’s offers more than 30 flavors, including Pirates Bounty (caramel ice cream with M&M's and chocolate cookies), Jolted Cow (coffee ice cream with chewy brownie pieces and caramel), and Purple Panda (raspberry with dark chocolate chunks). Rocko's also makes customized ice cream cakes for any occasion. 

“We want to do something fun to thank our customers for all the support that we’ve received from the community,” said Brandon Watterson. “It's our way of saying ‘thank you' to all of our loyal customers."
