Perfect carmel popcorn. Ice cream, hot dogs (Nathans), friendly staff, close to the ball park love the fact that they keep the popcorn under heat, they also have tins of popcorn. No more wanting for the holidays for some tinned popcorn, but crunch time's taste...More

We just had really delicious icecream from CrunchTime! I'm allergic to nuts and often that means I can't get icecream from these kinds of places. At CrunchTime they were great - they brought out new icecream from the back for me to make sure it...More

CrunchTime is small and you won't have that much elbow room as you check out their popcorn and gelato. I suggest you try the Abuelita, Mexican Hot Chocolate, gelato. It is delicious and tastes so much like the Abuelita's discs--the hot chocolate discs. I have...More

Not much to look at from the outside, but the place has it where it counts. The ice cream is really good. I recommend the chocolate mint.

We went for popcorn and ice cream and both were good. The nicest thing happened- our little guy got very tired and started crying and the man working out and brought tissues and a beautiful lollipop! He was so concerned.

This place was a lifesaver for us after eating some very bad Thai food. Also, the Gaslight district is pretty 'adult', so this provided something for our son, and frankly, for us as well. This place isn't a chain. The guy behind the counter said...More
