On our way to check out this year’s July 5th fireworks at Portage Lakes State Park, my family and I stopped at Pav’s on Manchester Road for a sweet treat.
Although everything on the menu looked good, Pav’s newest item caught our eye and tempted our taste buds: a glazed doughnut, dipped in chocolate, divided in half and filled with Pav’s kustard or hard ice cream.
My 6-year-old chose Cookies and Cream ice cream as the filling for his ice cream sandwich, and when the Pav’s employee handed it to him in a plastic container the size of his face, he looked at me with excitement, fear and plain-old “Are you kidding me?” When, after eating a quarter of the treat, my son waved the white flag, my husband saved the day, happily devouring the rest of the dessert.
You’ll find Pav’s at 3769 Manchester Road. To check out Pav’s flavors of the week and register to download coupons, visit www.pavscreamery.com. And remember, Pav’s in the Portage Lakes is open until early November, but in early 2015, you’ll be able to get your Pav’s fix year-round when its second location opens in Green.
