Wow- so many delicious links!!! I advise anyone not in the know to go out and buy a bottle (or ten) of Lupo's Spiedie Sauce. Then marinate something in it. (perhaps even your arm). Grill. Eat. Repeat. As always, love the show. see you guys soon!

Regarding the new high-tech "ice cream"-like products, I recently tried a "f'Real" smoothie at the Fast Trac convenience store across from Byrne Dairy. The system sounds similar to the one at Shortstop, except that you get a frozen cup from a freezer, rip off the top, and put it into the blending machine, which lifts it up and blends the contents. Not bad, but of course nothing like real soft-serve. I may have to try the "milkshake" varieties.

If you miss the old "ice milk" soft-serve (such as Dairy Queen used to have), which seems to have been replaced by modern flavor-reducing-thickener dairy product, my current favorite is the shakes at Arby's.

I'm not much of a fan of Wendy's expansion of their "Frosty" desserts, except for the"Twisted Frosty". I tried the cookie dough variety. Tasty, and quite similar to the D.Q. "Blizzard".
