    Thank you Dreamweaver! We all appreciate your dedication and continued commitment to helping us players when we mention issues to you.

    When I was working in a sort of kind of "strip mall" (more arranged around a center court), we were on the same latitude as an old Thifty's Drug Store. For those of you not from southern California and wherever else they were (not sure on that), it was a fairly standard drug store, larger than most CVS places, and almost always had: AN ICE CREAM CONE COUNTER. Oh my indeed. :D

    Some of my best childhood memories were of such places, and when coming off a shift at work, if it was winter (yes, we do have seasons in So. Cal.; winter = coldest, and the only time we get rain if we're lucky and the gods are kind :-/), it would have to be a double: one scoop of Rocky Road (on the bottom, since they had REAL Rocky Road, with big almonds and lots of mini-marshmallows), one scoop of either chocolate chip or mint chip, depending on mood. ;-> In the summer, it would also be a double: one Piña Colada, one rainbow sherbet (on top, since it tended to melt faster and needed to be eaten before it made the cone bottom soggy). :D

    I mourned the day they went bankrupt/got bought out; no more ice cream counters in such places. Sigh. :(

    We had a Rexall drug store, with an actual soda fountain. Little hexagonal tiles in front of the doorway. With actual soda jerks working there. With metal stools with padded seats to sit on.

    Once a month I would go in there and buy a banana split. Cost me $1.25, but it was worth it. Other weeks I got a Coke Cola float. I think that was about 30 cents.

    Store is long gone.
  12. Uwkete-of-Crushbone Well-Known Member

    Waahhh... :(

    And I'm not sure what they're replacing it with, frankly. Our office aisle is minuscule now, the books/magazines aisle is almost gone, where is the space going to? :-/

    Thrifty Ice Cream was the absolute best there was. You can buy it at some Water and Ice Stores. I have seen the signs in the windows. Look Thrifty Ice Cream up online Uwk, there may be someone near you that sells it.

    I remember the Rexall Drug Stores as well. Woolworth's also had soda fountains. Sears and J.C. Penney's used to have candy counters. Does anybody remember when See's used to actually make candy in their shops, not just have pre-packaged boxes in a shop? The only decent candy store I have seen in the last 25 years was in Silverton, CO.

    Long gone are the good days.

    Was in a city out west years ago, they had a Polar Bear Washburn's Frozen Yogurt Parlour.

    I cannot eat yogurt, but the folks I was with said it was great. I bought and ate some at the stores tables.

    Too bad I didn't have a freezer, or the money, to buy a couple of gallons of it.

    They had two large items I never bought.

    Mt. Everest; enough frozen yogurt and toppings for 6 people.

    Mt. McKinley; enough frozen yogurt and toppings for 3 people.

    If you could eat either one by yourself, it was free.

    Awesome about the Thrifty news! :D I remembered the time, eons ago, when they had GRAPE SHERBET...ooo, that was incredible, but they rarely had it in... :(

    And yeah, I vaguely remember that about See's (there is a plant in our area!); I've been a fan since being knee-high to a chocolate honeycomb crisp (Russell Stovers SUCKS!). ;->

    We used to have the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory in Burbank; then it moved to the Glendale Galleria; nowadays, I think the closest one is like out in Outlet Store Land. :( I hope they survive; they're incredible, and had the big ol' honkin' copper kettles right there in the store (at least the one in Burbank), complete with in-store candy makers. :D Chocolate-covered strawberries as big as your fist, and just about everything-covered apples you could stun a mugger with. Getting them sliced up was a necessity. ;-> Their handmade chocolate-covered marshmallows were awesome, way too rich, and needed to be eaten THAT DAY; they wouldn't survive, and could definitely NOT be refrigerated without the chocolate dying. :(

    Ten cents a scoop! The one where I grew up in Utah had these metal ice cream scoops that grabbed perfect cylinders of the same size. My favorite place for ice cream, too.

    There's a gym on the site now...

    Also: See's Scotch Mallow, dark chocolate. :D

    My mouth started watering when I read Chocolate covered strawberries the size of your fist LOL
    Where I grew up we had a Rexall and a Woolworths. The Woolworths was kinda far away but we used to go out on a Sunday Drive and we'd usually end up there.
  19. Uwkete-of-Crushbone Well-Known Member

    YES! I loved those scoops! They were so efficient and awesome! Looked for them for sale once I grew up and could afford them without asking for an allowance increase, only to find to my great dismay that it was a proprietary design... :(

    who also digs Scotch Mallow, but in milk chocolate :D
