There's no shortage of ice cream stops in Buffalo and Western New York. They're all over the City of Buffalo and the suburbs. From big ice cream shops that also serve food to small stands that keep people coming back every spring and summer.
However, there are plenty of ice cream places that no longer exist that Western New Yorkers miss so much. They could've been in business in the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, or even as recently as the last 20 years.
I remember going to a place that was on Niagara Falls Blvd (and we're talking mid-90s), that is where the current Anderson's is now. It was called Custard's Last Stand and was next to Ted's. I remember going there on a school field trip when I went to Willow Ridge Elementary in Amherst. They had an orange custard cone which I adored as a 5-year-old.
Does anyone remember the old Antoinette's on Union Road? It was Antoinette's On The Hill, which is now a Nick Charlap's location. It wasn't that long ago it changed hands, but that's another one I remember.
We recently asked listeners what old ice cream places they loved going to as a kid and for whatever reason, aren't around anymore in Buffalo. So many great answers but there were a few that kept getting brought up.

LOOK: 50 famous memes and what they mean
With the infinite number of memes scattered across the internet, it's hard to keep track. Just when you've grasped the meaning of one hilarious meme, it has already become old news and replaced by something equally as enigmatic. Online forums like Tumblr, Twitter, 4chan, and Reddit are responsible for a majority of meme infections, and with the constant posting and sharing, finding the source of an original meme is easier said than done. Stacker hunted through internet resources, pop culture publications, and databases like Know Your Meme
to find 50 different memes and what they mean. While the almost self-replicating nature of these vague symbols can get exhausting, memes in their essence can also bring people closer together—as long as they have internet access.
