I love the chocolate marshmallow and the peach ice cream (it has chunks of peaches in it). It's a favorite stop on my BESegal Ice CreM Tour of Philly. I believe Bassett's is made by Pott's Ice Cream according to e Bassett's family recipes. So be on the look out for shops that sell Pott's Ice Cream b/c it's great too.

In funny reading terminal market, easily to find here nearby entrance beneath the tunnel. I got a greentea two-scoops corn. It was huge enough. Interesting thing is, Obama was there before! Should try once more to get mint chocolate chips one which is Obama's favorite ;)

I arrived at Reading Terminal with a stomach ache and left with two scoops of ice cream. If anything, this is a testament to Bassett's hold on my heart. I have early memories of sitting at the counter with a cone of peanut butter swirl in hand, utterly content. The eggnog was creamy, smooth and delicious, and I ate it happily despite the cold weather and a long walk. I will always buy an ice cream cone from Bassett's when I'm in the vicinity. No matter how intense the wind chill is or how far I have to walk. -Kiley Bense Green tea ice cream, one of the most popular ice cream flavors in Asia, can not be too sweet... which sort of goes against the American concept of ice cream. I was therefore skeptical about trying the green tea ice cream at Bassett's, an all-American ice cream maker dating back to 1861. I realized my skepticism had been for naught after first lick. The perfectly creamy ice cream had the unmistakable taste of green tea with, lo and behold, just a hint of sweetness! The ideal pick-me-up when you want something decadent, without the typical sugar rush. -Elliott Brooks

I love Philadelphia. And there is nothing more Philadelphian than Bassett's Ice Cream in the Reading Terminal Market. Try the pralines and cream... Sooooooo Good! Just save a pint for me!
