1998 BEST Frappe

Cabot’s Ice Cream & Restaurant

This family-owned ice cream parlor is a flashback to the ’50s, but what better era to find a real New England ice cream frappe? Here they’ve perfected the art, with three straw-bending scoops of ice cream blended in a tall frosty frappe glass (five scoops for the extra-thick variety). Your choice of nine flavors, including mocha, black raspberry, mint, and cherry, or mixed with strawberries, banana, or pineapple.
