The Best Ice cream in the Area

Thomas Sweet has been there for a very long time, more than 25 years by my estimation. And in all that time no one has figured out how to dethrone them. They produce great ice cream with great mix-ins and seem to take pride in what they do. If you're looking for dessert in New Brunswick, this is a... read more

For over 20 years I have been a regular customer at Thomas Sweet. The quality is the same. Tops. It is not easy to find a better quality ice cream in NJ.

The ice cream was fresh and lots of toppings to choose from. It was very good and worth the visit. They were also very good about getting my childrens ice cream from the back due to nut allergies.

Well it's a hot July day in New Jersey and that calls for Ice Cream. We haven't been to Thomas Sweet in several years but decided to drive two towns over to get there. The Servers are very friendly and informative. My Wife had Coffee Ice Cream with Heath Bar blended in and I had Banana Cream Pie Ice Cream... More

My boyfriend is super duper picky on chocolate ice cream. We will drive all over only to certain places. We stopped in on a whim and I got the banana peanut butter frozen yogurt. Which I thoroughly enjoyed. He actually praised their ice cream! He had a waffle cone with chocolate ice cream. This place is a little pricey but... More

Their blend ins are great. They have so many choices and they come out so yummy. Try it and I'm sure you will love it. We all did. We have a nut allergy and they offered new ice cream and new toppings from the back of the restaurant.

Best dulce de leche ice cream anywhere. Rich and creamy caramel ice cream with thick buttery swirls of caramel. Dulce de leche ice cream does not freeze as hard as other flavors; it is always the consistency of soft serve. Absolute heaven and worth the trip from anywhere. Servers are friendly and efficient.

Used to go here in high school and loved it, and came back 25 years later and it is still the same! Still by far my favorite! Can't beat the blend-ins! Wish it wasn't 2.5 hours away!
