Food Porn: Condrell’s Candies & Ice Cream

Remember back to the Abbott’s Custard post when we promised that this summer we were going to have a large number of ice cream spots featured? Alli and I realized that we are getting married in less than a year and we would prefer to both be under 1000 pounds for that special date.  So our ice cream trips have been significantly cut, but this last weekend we treated ourselves and got to enjoy a place I’ve wanted to try for a while.

I was hoping that Condrell’s was going to be sort-of a “blast of the past”; with an old fashioned soda fountain, nice bar seating and old 50’s style decorations, etc.  Well, this unassuming little spot on Delaware in North Buffalo unfortunately doesn’t have that much of a vintage feel, but that didn’t make it any less delicious.  Walking in you sit right down and wait for one of the workers to help you out (unless you are their for some chocolates).  We started with two glasses of water and Alli and I looked over their massive menu.

What I ordered was basically a S’more sundae (bottom picture); one scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream and one scoop of Chocolate Ice Cream, crushed up Graham crackers, a marshmallow sauce and some hot fudge.  To be honest, it was exactly what I’ve wanted for months and is something I have been craving for more of since ordering it.  I have ordered s’more sundaes in the past but there always seems to be something amiss.  Some places use actual marshmallows instead of a marshmallow sauce, some don’t have graham crackers and instead just put the whole thing in a waffle cone (as a less satisfying graham substitute). This sundae, however, had exactly what I think a s’more sundae should have, and, to me, was pretty close to perfect.  Alli ordered a hot fudge sundae with bananas.  That is typically her go-to sundae no matter where we go.  According to her report it was quite good and very filling as they don’t skimp on the serving size.

It really reminded me of the top quality that you would get from West Seneca’s Antoinettes, and similarly they also serve various chocolates that you can buy by the pound as well as a VERY large selection of ice cream, sundaes, and sodas.  So, before the heat wave ends in Buffalo (it’s coming quicker then you think) I highly recommend you stop by Condrell’s this summer.
