We were visiting Princeton and swung by Thomas Sweet Ice Cream after the tour - it was right across from the school. Fantastic ice cream - locally made. They have a unique method of blending / mixing the ice cream which is really tasty. You...More

Probably the best ice cream shop in the world. They were the original mixers of ice cream. Pick you ice cream, and all the toppings and then they blend it up and serve it fresh. The ice cream is made on the premises and everything...More

A trip to Princeton has to include Thomas Sweet Ice Cream dished out by the "Sweeties." Great and unusual flavors that are decadent and delicious. And if you want an extra treat, ask for a blend in with your favorite fruit or candies blended into...More
