Scoop 73: Cranberry Soft Serve at Cobie’s in Brewster, MA (Cape Cod)

by Ice Cream Maker Reviews on August 7, 2006

Mmmmm.  That’s what I have to say about Cobie’s located on route 6A just outside of Brewster on Cape Cod.  Even though this site is about ice cream, let me tell you what I had for lunch: a fish sandwich (with lots of tartar sauce) and fried clams.  It couldn’t have tasted any better (and it was cheap!)

On to the ice cream… Cobie’s had both soft serve and hard ice cream.  I was intrigued with their soft serve since they listed 24 different flavors.  I have never seen a store with more than 4 or even 6 flavors of soft serve before.  I finally settled on cranberry (since that seemed like a Massachusetts flavor).  I watched carefully to see where they stored all of the soft serve machines (since I could only see one from where I was standing).  It turned out there was only one soft serve machine and it had chocolate and vanilla.  What they did was put some soft serve in a cup and add a few squirts of a syrup mix-in (like coffee or Italian soda syrups) and then put it all in another machine that blends it and spits it out in the typical soft serve twirl.  Very intriguing.  It tasted excellent.  The soft serve was smooth and the cranberry flavor was tasty.  The cake cone was even good (and I don’t usually like cake cones).  Moreover, it only cost $2.25.  (The hard ice cream was the same price).  I don’t know where else you can find as good of soft serve at a better price.
