The Soft Serve Chronicles: Jumpin Jack’s (Scotia, NY)


What better for a birthday treat than opening day at an ice cream shop? I quickly left work and headed up to Scotia. JJ’s has been around forever, but this was the first time I had ever been there. Too far, and from what I heard about it, it was bound to be packed.

And on opening day, it sure was. I could see the line up as I crossed over the bridge. There’s the main building, where you can order food, and then there’s a smaller building off to the side that just serves ice cream. I’m still on the “no meat” kick, so that burger is going to have to wait.

Soft serve prices:

Small – $1.50
Medium – $ 2.00
Large – $2.25

Sprinkles – $0.50

I grabbed a medium vanilla twist with rainbow sprinkes which set me back $2.50. I really need to bring a ruler or something, but it seemed a bit small for a medium. The small, which is also the kiddie size, is hardly any ice cream… it’s like a little nub. Because it was a warmer day and sunnier, I had more sprinkle loss. More so in my car. Good thing I got napkins.

Is one in the lead so far flavor-wise?

Jon - they all pretty much taste the same. But probably because it's not really ice cream, but a frozen dairy thing that came in a bag.
