DAY 44 - Tom's Ice Cream Bowl



Nestled on a little side street near downtown is a Zanesville landmark -- Tom's Ice Cream Bowl. It was opened in 1948. The inside looks like an old-fashioned soda shop -- long ice cream counter, long candy and nut counter, linoleum floor, little square tables, fluorescent lights, no air conditioning -- it's really a blast from the past. It pretty much looks like it did in 1948.







It has a small sandwich menu -- that's not what people to there for. It's the ice cream!! Huge sundaes of all sizes and flavors. Sundaes come in big round pottery bowls, usually dripping down the sides! A small sundae is big enough for two people, and then some. I snuck a picture of this guy's blueberry ice cream and cashews. . .



And here's my hot fudge sundae. . .
