you remember Thrifty Drug Store and the 5 cent cones. Thrifty Drug is gone, bought out by Rite Aid, but they still carry Thrifty Ice Cream (an excellent value when it is on BOGO Free). Chocolate Malted Crunch is amazing, Cherry chocolate chip divine, Mint chip my favorite, but they have a mean pistachio too.
