Apparently, this is business on Ocean Blvd. in Long Branch is technically known as “Ocean D-Lites.” But they do sell Tasti D-Lite, which, if you’re not familiar with it (since it’s only sold in a few states: New York [most of its stores are concentrated in NYC], New Jersey, Connecticut, Florida, and Texas), is a soft-serve “guilt-free” ice cream-esque dessert.
I actually just tried the stuff for the first time last weekend. Despite the multitude of flavors, after a few bites, you stop tasting anything at all and only feel the cold softness on your tongue. It’s not bad, but it’s not real ice cream.
