If you are like us, every day is Sundae and you can’t have a good dinner without dessert immediately after. And don’t worry, we won’t judge if you are a dessert first kinda person because, same. Let’s hear the scoop!🍨🥄

📸: Mayday Ice Cream

🎵”Sweet dreams are made of this…”🎵 is the song that plays in our head when thinking of Mayday Ice Cream! Mayday has such wide variety of ice cream flavors to choose from that you are going to want to sample them all. Our favorite is the coffee & donuts flavor and it even has chunks of donuts in it! How cool?! And even though their delicious ice cream speaks for itself, the story behind the name makes them stand out even more! We have recently learned that Mayday is named in honor of some innovative fellow Americans who served our country in World War II. You can read more about their story here.

📸: Whit's Frozen Custard

It is hard to talk about Whit’s Frozen Custard without immediately craving it. Every flavor of the day is delicious! One of their fun features is you can make your own unique flavor, it’s called “The Whitster.” You choose your flavor and whatever topping you want! Their toppings include customer favorites, candies, fruit, nuts, etc.! If you are wanting something to-go, they also offer take home freezer items. 

We saved the best fact for last… they also offer Doggie Sundaes for your furry friends!🐾

If you have ever been to Sweet Theory on a Saturday morning, you know the line is usually out the door!

Daily offerings include cinnamon rolls, doughnuts, and biscuit sandwiches! They also have gluten free items including coffee cakes, cupcakes, brownies, cookies, loaf cakes, and more!🍰
