    American Globs is the best! Line the cone with biscoff (cookie butter) and you won't regret it. 😍 NO lines during the day, but long wait for the after dinner/drunk crowd.!

    Salty Pimp is the classic and what you must do on your first visit. Line outside is a killer, though. :(

    This is, by far, the best softserve I've had during my two months in NYC. Definitely try the specialty mix with vanilla ice cream, Nilla wafers, and dulce de le che. Yummilicious!!!!!

    Gotta go for the American globs. The pretzel/ice cream combo is genius, and if you spring for a waffle cone lined with peanut butter... Yum.

    Try the Bea Arthur, Salty Pimp, or Cinnamax sandwich for a cold delight. You can also buy a t-shirt.

    I didn't think there was anything special about the ice cream and I do love soft serve. I think it's just more hype about the naming / toppings.

    Big Gay Ice Cream certainly has flair to spare. The ice cream cones have interesting names and lots of options for toppings. The ice cream is soft serve and a bit boring by itself.

    Classic vanilla cones get jacked up with spiced chocolate dip and injected with salted caramel. If you’re doing a dessert crawl, I’m going recommend you walk to the East Village location. Read more

    They do really fun stuff with soft serve here. The horchata flavor is surprisingly great, and the Salty Pimp is delicious. Also don't worry if there's a line! It moves really fast.
