The Roslindale House of Pizza on Washington Street is now advertising soft-serve ice-cream, potentially saving people north of Adams Park from the walk all the way up to Jimmies for some soft ice cream.

The Friendly’s Fribble has real ice cream once again, MassLive reports.

Oh, who cares? What's been killing Friendly's for the past decade isn't the food, or the decor. It's the service. Maybe if they can figure out how to serve fast food fast instead of agonizingly slow, they might have a shot. They shut the Friendly's in West Roxbury (West Roxbury! Can you think... Read more

State Treasurer Steve Grossman had some Schweddy Balls today and tweets about the experience:

Latest flavor gets a 5/10. Too much vanilla. Not enough malted milk balls.

You may recall that Grossman made trips to ice-cream places a part of his successful election campaign last year.

News that Stop & Shop doesn't want to touch Ben & Jerry's Schweddy Balls is apparently spurring a mini-frenzy among the local Twitterati desperate for fudge-covered rum balls. So here's a (no doubt far from complete) list of local emporia where you can get your hands on some Schweddy Balls:
