Maybe New Jersey is called the “Garden State” because most shore-goers consider ice cream to be a vegetable. Or maybe that’s just us. You’ll no doubt see dozens of ice cream shops as you drive town-to-town along Route 35, but Hoffman’s is the one you’ll be thinking about in your office on Monday. We’d like to believe that it’s some cream-to-sugar ratio that they’ve nailed, but scientists are still trying to prove that. It’s been around for more than 60 years and serves more than 40 varieties of rich and dense ice cream, including signature flavors like mint cookie and coffee Oreo. If you’re not heading to Pt. Pleasant, Hoffman’s has a shop in Spring Lake, too.
