Fuzzy's Italian Ice and Ice Cream Now Open in Rochester

If you joined in on the fun at the Night Markets last summer, you already had an opportunity to taste some of the food created by the owners of Fuzzy's Italian Ice and Ice Cream.  If you didn't have that chance, now you do because I heard through the internet grapevine that Fuzzy's Italian Ice and Ice Cream is now open in the old Potbelly's location at 318 1st Ave. SW.

I love seeing what places offer before I actually show up and am thrilled that Fuzzy's Italian Ice put a few photos up on their Facebook page.  They are basically teasing us because the Oreo bubble waffle that had ice cream and brownie bites in it looked absolutely phenomenal.

Amazing, right?!  Just to tease you a little bit more, here are some of the flavors or soft serve ice cream that they offer - vanilla, chocolate, green apple, caramel, butter pecan, cotton candy, birthday cake, strawberry, bubble gum, and mocha.

My kids are always wanting extra toppings when they are at Culver's, Flapdoodles, or DQ and I'm sure if you visit, your kids will want a little extra at Fuzzy's as well.  Toppings are just $1 and the list is pretty long and some favorites like cookie dough, Nutella, hot fudge, Oreo, brownie bites, and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups are a few of the many on the list.  See a few more on Fuzzy's Facebook page.

Congrats on the opening, Fuzzy's!  I'm sure I'll be stopping in soon to grab something sweet.
