From snow cones and Italian ice to traditional ice cream and everything in between, these local Savannah shops have the perfect solution for your summer sweet tooth.
A SnoBall is New Orleans style shaved ice coated in a sweet and colorful syrup. And when you’re in the mood for one of these, Pelican’s SnoBalls, just south of Midtown, is where you need to be. Just be sure and try one of their signature SnoBalls, like the Super Hero – a classic mixture of blue raspberry and cherry.
Leopold's Ice Cream
Leopold’s Ice Cream has been the tried and true, go-to sweets shop in Savannah for over a century – and they’ve used the exact same premium-ingredient recipe since the shop was established in 1919. Take your pick from a single or double scoop, sundaes, splits, ice cream sodas and sandwiches, floats, or shakes. And how could you ever resist flavors, like lemon custard, caramel swirl, or rum bisque?
Savannah Square Pops
This tasty treat is like ice cream or sorbet in popsicle form. These handcrafted ice pops include flavors such as Blueberry Basil, Milk n Honey, and so much more. Savannah Square Pops, located in the Savannah Historic District, even features locally inspired flavors like Tybee Breeze and Georgia Peach Tea.
Have you ever had real Italian ice before? Think snow cone, sorbet, and ice cream all combined into one delicious treat. Right off of East River St. you’ll see Repicci’s little Italian ice shack. It’s a must-try this summer with flavors ranging from espresso and caramel apple to lemon and strawberry.
