The French vanilla blend in with strawberries is my favorite ice cream ever. A great little spot in the heart of Rutgers on Easton Avenue. If you love I e cream this is a spot you must check out.

You have to get the chocolate chip cookie because this is the only ice cream place that does it right--real brown sugar in the ice cream to make it taste like cookie dough. A long-time favorite that never fails to satisfy. Never had better ice cream anywhere!

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
