For more than half a century, you know you’ve turned the corner on nasty weather and all things Winter when you drive down North Avenue in Garwood and the good ‘ol Frosty Freeze is open for business.

The local, family-owned favorite comes out of hibernation in April. They offer wonderful soft and hard ice cream and yogurt, custom ice cream cakes, Italian Ice, floats, shakes and more.

“There’s an old [school] charm about the place,” posted Benson Y on Yelp.

“The best ice cream place in the area. Prices are great,” commented Yelper Rachel B. “We are so glad we found this place!”

Frosty Freeze is located at 1 North Avenue on the Garwood-Cranford border.
