After raking in nearly $200 million at the box office worldwide this weekend, it’d be hard to call “Godzilla” just a flavor of the week — except at Snowflake Ice Cream Shoppe in Riverhead.

Godzilla ice cream, a monstrous dessert now available at the West Main Street ice cream stand, celebrates the 2014 revamp of the classic monster flick. The flavor contains vanilla ice cream, five different types of homemade cookies, smashed M & Ms and decapitated gummy bears.

Patrons began requesting the treat after Snowflake announced the flavor by posting a photo of the Japanese beast terrorizing the ice cream shop on its Facebook page.

“A lot of people were coming in right after seeing the movie,” said Snowflake owner Stu Feldschuh. “One kid came in all over looking for Godzilla.”

Godzilla ($3.75 small, $5 large)  ice cream is available at Snowflake Ice Cream Shoppe located at 1148 West Main St. Riverhead.
