Lexi Balunas and Matt Pesko opened Cloud Nine Ice Cream & Cereal Bar in Patchogue last year serving up ice cream infused with cereal. Now, they have brought their delicious concoctions to Smithtown.

A new ice cream place has opened in Huntington, and while the owner is stepping out on her own, she has globs of ice cream parlor experience behind her.
According to a story on Huntington Patch, owner Christine Cairo worked at Krisch's in Massapequa for years before she thought of starting her own shop.
“Cairo's brother owns Krisch's, and she received an offer to make the Huntington storefront a Krisch's satellite,” the story says. “Her husband, Paul Cairo, also said she could share the name Strong Island Ice Cream — the parlor he founded in Nesconset. However, Christine declined and opted to fly solo instead.”
The Ice Cream Chick occupies the same site where Herrell's Ice Cream used to be but closed this June after 13 years in business, according to a story in Greater Huntington.
Location: 46L Gerard Street, Huntington, (631) 673-1100.
