Iconic! Food Network Praises a Tasty Shake Made at the Snowman in Troy

Is it too soon to start wishing for warm days, mild nights, and long lines at our favorite ice cream spots in the Capital Region?  It might be for some, but not me.  I can literally eat ice cream every single day of the week, and in all forms, because I am not picky.  Hard, soft, in a sundae, scooped onto a sugar cone, dipped in sprinkles, made into a cookie sandwich or into a shake, if it's made with ice cream, I'm going to eat it!
