You Scream, I Scream, We ALL Scream for.....
Goodbye Pie, Hello Ice Cream
The clouds have cleared, the birds are singing and Spring is finally in the air. With one quick glance we can see the change that’s underway. Flowers are blooming, the grass is high and our skin is begging for the sun’s kiss. And just as we see changes to the world around us, we also start to notice changes at our local restaurants. We gradually move away from the warm cakes and pies that soothed our bones over the Winter months and we start looking forward to fruit topped custards and creamy ice creams! Fortunately for us foodies, Salisbury has PLENTY to of options!
One of my favorite stops is the old fashioned, iconic Dairy Queen located at 1004 W Innes St where you can still order all kinds of delicious soft-serve treats right at the window. On a warm summer night, just after the sun sets, nothing makes the heart sing like a dipped cone!
As you venture into downtown, you’ll notice Spanky’s, a cozy, sort-of retro ice-cream shop that also offers all sorts of sundaes, cookies, sandwiches and soups in addition to a nice selection of ice-cream flavors. Spanky’s is located right on the corner Innes and Main and is a regular stop for downtown shoppers. North of Spanky’s you’ll find some less traditional ice-cream in the beautiful new Pho Uy in addition to Vietnamese waffles and bubble teas.
Venture South on Main and you’ll find one of our newer ice-cream joints, Salisbury Scoops. Currently located at 207 S. Main St, Salisbury Scoops first opened in May 2018 by owners Jesse and Morgan Miller of Cleveland, North Carolina. The Millers are not new in town. In fact, they also own Southern Sass Boutique which they operated out of the same shop until the business outgrew the space. That’s when Salisbury Scoops emerged. When asked, “why ice-cream?” the Millers responded swiftly asking,
“who doesn’t love ice-cream?”I have to admit, they got me there. Salisbury Scoops offers a wide variety of ice creams with several unique flavors. They have done well in their first year but alas, they have yet again outgrown the location.
With an anticipated date of late-April, Salisbury Scoops will host a grand re-opening right next door at 205 S. Main. The new location will offer guests more space and a more open and friendly environment. Along with the current menu, they will also offer several fun, new items including gourmet milkshakes and slushies, including a Rowan themed Cheerwine flavor! They will also be offering the “Salisbury Super Split.” The Salisbury Super Spilt consists of not one.. not two.. BUT FOURTEEN scoops of cold, creamy ice-cream. Then, they top it with all the traditional fixings! This enormous bowl of Heaven can be enjoyed by two or more people BUT if one person manages to eat it all in 30 minutes or less, the feast is FREE of charge, and the brave soul who conquered it will be honored with a portrait on the Scoops’ Super Split Wall of Fame!
Salisbury Scoops is open Tuesday through Thursday from 11am-8pm, and Friday and Saturday from 11am-9pm. You can find them on Facebook and Instagram @salisbury-scoops! So when that craving hits, and you know it will, don’t forget that when it comes to ice-cream Salisbury has it all!
Now I want some ice cream. YumReplyDelete
