The flavor choices abound in this tiny shop off of Easton, and the results are wonderful. We had the full gamut from birthday cake, nutella, and mississippi mud, to plain old vanilla, all were creamy and delicious. One hint, there can be a line, and the tubs aren't clearly marked, so making a quick decision is tough. Take a look... More

I have been going to Thomas Sweets since I was in 2nd grade. Chocolate ice cream with peanut M&M Blend-In is the only thing I get! It is the perfect ice cream and they grind up a bunch of toppings so there are plenty little bits in each bite. Last time I went, I tried the banana cream pie flavor... More

For anyone who loves ice cream, this is a not-to-be-missed experience! Absolutely delicious ice cream (try the chocolate marshmallow Oreo) and they will give you tastes of a few flavors if you are undecided. Their "blend-ins" are great, too. Also, be sure to stop in by their amazing home-made chocolate store next door (dark chocolate ginger!!) Diet tomorrow...

Thomas Sweets is a real TREAT! If you are just walking in New Brunswick or simply just driving through the area, this destination is a must. When you first walk in, you think a little small, but take a dive for the treats. I have been going here for a very long time, and every time I go back, I... More

As a family, we never miss an opportunity to stop in for a double scoop sundae, shake or frozen yogurt! Variety is abundant our favorites when available: Chocolate Covered Strawberries & Dexters Frebish! A bit more expensive then other stores in the area, but trust us it's well worth it! Downside: Parking!

Hubby and I were in the mood for something sweet and we were not disappointed: hubby got a waffle cone (home made) with two scoops of coffee with oreo and nutella ice-cream. I tried them both and it was amazing, I'm normally not a fan of cones but this one was incredible: buttery and crispy, pure heaven! The ice creams... More

I visited twice during my most recent visit to New Brunswick. The first time I had the coffee ice-cream which was delicious. The most intriguing part was how creamy and soft it was. I was also impressed by the fact that they had three different coffee ice creams. The second time I had the vanilla and amaretto ice creams and... More

I had vanilla ice cream in a waffle cone; I had to order two scoops because one scoop looked like nothing. I couldn't taste a hint of vanilla in the vanilla ice cream and the waffle cone was soft and flavorless. My wife had a small sundae with walnuts, hot fudge and whipped cream. She got chocolate sauce not hot... More

It you are into homemade ice cream or very sweet stuff, this is the place for you. We had a craving for something sweet and thought we'd give it a try. I got the brownie sundae. It was on the sweet side - at least for me. They had a steady stream of folks come for their ice cream. Being... More
