While the days and weeks seem to mesh into one amidst the coronavirus lockdowns, this Sunday is a special day that will break the monotony.
It is Mother’s Day, and while it may not be possible for mom to be taken out to eat at her favorite restaurant, there are local options for families to mark this special day.
One option could be a special delivery or curbside pickup from Twist and Shake located at 482 Shirley Street.
Sheryl Queen, who has been operating Twist and Shake for the past 13 years notes that there is something for everyone, especially for mothers.
“While there are no customers allowed inside or at our takeout windows,” Queen noted, “we offer both delivery and curbside pickup.” The menu includes a wide selection of ice cream and yogurt flavors. If you’re looking for more than just an ice cream to satisfy a sweet tooth, try one of their delicious Banana Boats or Brownie Sundaes.
As for worries about the ice cream or yogurt melting before it reaches your mother, Queen describes the process that keeps the frozen ice cream from melting.
“We first take the order, make the order, then bag and secure it for delivery,” Queen said. “We then put the bag into a deep freeze of about five degrees below zero and then wait for delivery or pickup.”
Twist and Shake is open for the season and their telephone number is 617-846-8500.
