Twistee Treat review image

Twistee Treat

Twistee Treat is literally the shape of a giant ice cream cone. So when standing in line, you already get a nice preview for whatever soft serve you’re about to grab. The cash-only Northeast spot has vanilla, chocolate, swirls of orange cream, and a few other rotating flavors that you can get every day. Dress up your cone with chocolate dippings, candies, chocolate jimmies, M&Ms, and a peanut sauce drizzle. A cone of their smooth and subtly sweet soft serve is perfect for a short trip to the waterfront at nearby Lander’s Point Park, where you can watch people cross the bridge into the land of endless diners and pumped gas.
