Valentine's day. Go

We have teamed up with our buddies at Melt Bakery to create a super ice cream sandwich gift package for Valentine’s Day. This frozen gift practically guarantees you a hot time. Make it so!

Here's what you'll be getting, all packaged in a lovely cake box. Each ice cream sandwich is individually wrapped in a clear cellophane bag, for maximum pretty:

  • Three Lovelets - Red Velvet whoopie pies with cream cheese ice cream. Unbelievably good. 
  • Three Sweetpeas - Heart-shaped vanilla shortbread cookies with strawberry ice cream. What could be more perfect?

You want em. 


We are accepting orders through Thursday February 9. You'll need to pre-pay, and the total cost is $36.
There are three ways to order:

  1. Come by the shop, located at 125 East 7th Street, and pay with cash or any credit card but Amex.
  2. Email us at, and be sure to include your full name and telephone number. We'll call you back so that can pay by phone using a credit card (again, not American Express).
  3. Leave a message on our shop's phone line, and include your full name and return phone number. We'll call you back. 212-533-9333


Your order will be ready on Februrary 13 and 14. We aren't going to ship- you'll need to swing by our shop.

It depends how old you are and how close you two are and how long you've been dating. 1 year: promise ring; 5-6 months: bouquet of roses; 3-1 months: teddy bear (not a used one); 1 week: a flower and a message expressing why you chose her.
This package of ice cream sandwich is a very good one for every age to express love. I''ll be very happy if someone proposed me with this surprised gift. Definitely i'' accept his proposal in that case.. :)
