Screaming for Ice Cream

What could be better than having ice cream on a hot, summer day…apparently not much.

Scoops of ice cream are flowing over the counters at Tom’s Ice Cream Bowl in Zanesville. The general manager is reporting a spike in sales and a lot of repeat business.

"They come out of the walls. We have billboards up, and we have them coming from New Lexington and Coshocton. We have a big following in Marietta. They come from everywhere, " says General Manager, Joe Baker.

Tom’s Ice Cream Bowl is the only restaurant in the area that serves homemade ice cream, and it’s up to 32 flavors now.

"The best seller is the vanilla because it goes under most of the sundaes. I’d say the actual flavors would be chocolate, chocolate chip cookie dough, chocolate peanut butter fudge chunk, and maybe Oreo coming in right behind, " says Baker.

Some of the little customers though had a hard time getting the ice cream in their stomachs and ended up wearing it.
