Summer is approaching, which calls for all the ice cream treats on a hot day. Good thing you don't have to go far to experience the best there is in town, all close to home at Union at Carrollton Square. Take your pick from one of Carrollton’s top four ice cream shops for that creamy, sweet, ice cold goodness.
Beth Marie’s Old Fashioned Ice Cream
Beth Marie’s Old Fashioned Ice Cream is the real deal – we’re talking premium-quality ice cream containing 14% butterfat, all made using a machine built in 1927 that produces 10 gallons of ice cream in 18 minutes. With a seasonal menu and over 130 flavors made over the years (and between 48 and 64 flavors at any given time), you can always count on Beth Marie’s for some amazing ice cream.
Snow City Shaved Ice Cafe
Not your typical ice cream shop, Snow City Shaved Ice Cafe is that dessert shop that keeps you coming back for more of its unique shaved ice creations and pressed waffles. In addition to their delicious shaved ice that’s often referred to by guests as “creamy snow,” they have other treats like Cake Bingsoo (your choice of cake filling with delectable toppings) and French taiyakis (fish-shaped stuffed waffles). Snow cones, but fancy – Snow City is the spot.
Using only fresh, real ingredients, Yogurtland offers some of the best froyo in town. Frozen yogurt flavors like cookie dough, cheesecake, Dutch chocolate, fresh strawberry, and several others set the stage for your yogurt experience. Personalize it with your favorite toppings, and voila – the best froyo ever.
7 Degrees Ice Cream Rolls
Another outside-of-the-box ice cream shop, 7 Degrees Ice Cream Rolls serves up delicious homemade ice cream, but in a roll! Customize your ice cream by choosing from a wide variety of flavors for your base, then choosing four mix-ins or toppings, and one sauce. Uniquely delicious, 7 Degrees is a must-try.
