CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – From milkshakes, ice cream sundaes, and even non-dairy to huge bomb creations at Roger’s Place in Chicopee, 22News explains the huge variety at this local iconic place.
Roger’s Place is a family-run business that has been serving soft serve for more than 20 years and is home to the ‘Bomb Fill Up Cones‘ for its third season. Roger’s Place is known for its huge portions and was inspired to create the bomb cones by a few desserts seen around the world and wanted to create their own core cones with Roger’s touch on it.
Catherine Westley of Roger’s Place told 22News that the first bomb was created in May 2021 called the caramel walnut whip, a vanilla soft serve filled with caramel, topped with chocolate dip, and rolled into walnuts.

“I knew that if I was going to do a core cone, it had to be Roger’s way and so here we began just filling with sauces. Now we are putting whole eclairs inside cones, pieces of NY cheesecake, and carrot cake in cones.”
