This behemoth two-story follow-up to husband-and-wife team Brian Smith and Jackie Cuscuna’s Prospect Heights scoop shop comes complete with bright barn-animal murals, aqua vinyl booths and a 25-seat roof deck. All that extra room means even more ice cream. The 1,000-square-foot kitchen churns out 24 ever-changing, off-the-wall flavors —up from the original store’s 16—that will please inner and actual kids alike. Snap Mallow Pop, an überrich, jet-puffed marshmallow number studded with crunchy, toasted rice-cereal nubs, is as comforting as a bake-sale Rice Krispies treat, and the Munchies jazzes up pretzel-infused ice cream with clusters of potato chips, Ritz crackers and mini M&Ms.
