Hoffman's Ice Cream

I love places that actually live up to the hype surrounding them! And Hoffman's Ice Cream does exactly this. Feel like a kid again and get yourself to this adorable Point Pleasant Beach  ice cream parlor before summer ends. Wait on line with the locals (yes there is a line), order a waffle cone filled with creamy delicious homemade ice cream, and sit outside on the stoop as you lick up the remnants dripping down your elbows. 

I tried the location in Point Pleasant, but I'm told the one in Spring Lake is also delicious. Point Pleasant Beach is only a few minutes further down Main Street from Vic's. It's worth taking the kids here and getting in your last licks (see what I did there?) before it's back to reality.  
Get the Cookie Monster. Blue vanilla ice cream spun on premises with cookie doughp bites and smashed oreos. Life doesn't get much better than this. Fudge Mint, Peanut Butter Nugget and Cookie Dough were all also winners. Hoffman's also does prepared ice cream cakes in the fridge if you want to take it to go. Good luck getting it home in one piece. Yes, it's that good. 

Almost forgot to mention the "Octopus Challenge". 8 scoops in 8 minutes of less, gets you a free t-shirt. As good a reason as any to get down here ASAP.
