If you want an awesome ice-cream treat.

Try walking into the Common Man Camp Restaurant and ask for a Take Out "Snow Ball". It's in Meredith across the street from the public docks.

It's enough for two people to share.

Hmmm, that S'more looks pretty good too.

The boy and I were driving home from a camping trip (Mead Base Exploration Camp—AWESOME), so we decided to seek out a new place and decided on Jordan's.

We got a Belly Buster bucket with apple pie, blueberry pie, pumpkin, black raspberry, and Heath bar ice creams; hot fudge and peanut butter sauces; butterfinger pieces; and whipped cream.

The apple pie absolutely stood out from the rest, followed closely by blueberry pie.

For $12, it was AWESOME.

I absolutely see why people like it, and I wish it were closer to camp.

Good that you finally made it to Jordan's. The Belly Buster Bucket sounds like about 25 cents per 100 calories

Split two (or more) ways, that's a bargain. Weeks used to have a Mount Washington, 2 bananas, 6 scoops of ice cream and all the rest. Split two ways, whoever got to the middle first won and the loser paid.

L'il Buddy is probably OK, but 400 Jumping Jacks for you, Think.

A hike of Mount Israel and some work at camp (probably) balanced that scale!

Default Not Lakes Region but

Not the Lakes Region, but the Putnam Pantry in Danvers MA has/had the Bunker Hill, 17 scoops of whatever ice cream flavor(s) you wanted, piled up on a platter, served with as many spoons that you need, along with plenty of napkins. Scoops were large. I think you could also get sauces, whipped cream, nuts, cherries, etc..
It's been quite a while since we were there, but it was great with several people sitting around the table with their own spoon.

Now I'm totally interested: any "crazy" places in the Lakes Region? Kellerhaus and Jordan's have cool things, but anyone else?

I remember my Dad and Uncles challenging my Great Aunt to finish one of Weeks Mount Washington banana splits by herself. She accepted the challenge and did complete it one Sunday night before we went to the Weirs to watch fireworks. I remember her lying on the back seat of the car groaning while the rest of us watched the fireworks. Will never forget her face of pain.
