Pink Bear Ice Cream coming soon to East 14th Street



The coming soon signage is up at 226 E. 14th St. between Second Avenue and Third Avenue...the storefront will be home to a Pink Bear Ice Cream Shop...



This will be Pink Bear's second location...the other is in Flushing.



There's not much info about the products at the Pink Bear Facebook page, just that their ice cream is made "with 100% fresh fruit. Tasty & Healthy!" They also advertise serving ice cream rolls.

This will be the second new shop serving rolled ice cream in the neighborhood... Lab 321, which will sell their variation of the traditional Thai street food, is opening at 27 St. Mark's Place between Second Avenue and Third Avenue.

As for the East 14th Street storefront, the space last housed Exodus 14, the sneaker consignment shop that quietly closed up earlier this year.

Kidults love ice cream and apparently rolled ice cream is "amazing".

If only Funkiberry and DF Mavens had thought of selling rolled ice cream...just think of the franchising possibilities.

Not.

It sounds like nondairy/fruit-based ice cream, which should please the not-humorless vegans of the neighborhood, but I'm one of those humorless vegans who far prefers actual fruit and vintage kicks. I was so sad to see Exodus 14 go.

What's next? A store selling kidult diapers? Where are these people so afraid of adulthood?

"amazing" for about one try, maybe two? And then on to the next "thing".

Grownups who like desserts are shit out of luck in this neighborhood. Around here dessert is pretty much all multicolored and covered in confetti.

I get not being a fan of this new business - maybe it's not your thing. But to suggest that people that might want to give this a try have something wrong in their emotional development is just plain weird.

Maybe they look around, read comments like this online and think "being old sounds grumpy as hell". Let them eat ice cream.

along with the shoe repair stores and the supermarkets, and the mom and pop everything specialty stores, etc., we've lost many fine dessert and bread bakeries that once lined first avenue and were not artisinal or locavore, just selling good tasting stuff with real whipped cream..

I never heard of rolled ice cream before. Looks really good. I would like to try it at least once.
