Herrell’s in Allston Now Allston Cafe

Up with originality and “funkiness,” according to the Globe, just please please please keep the chocolate pudding ice cream if possible: The Herrell’s in Allston Village has always been a little different from other franchises in the ice cream chain.

Save Toscanini’s!

I must not be the only one who would be crushed to see Toscanini’s close. Where else can you get the world’s best Cake Batter ice cream? This item is currently available, along with tons of other flavors, on the shelves of your local grocer (Stop & Shop? Shaw’s? Whole Foods? Not Trader Joe’s, that…
