With Memorial Day weekend being so dreary and gloomy, I decided to treat myself to a trip to the cutest ice cream shop! It is called, The Local Scoop, and it is a hidden gem in the Promenade shopping center (although there are two other locations; one in Parktowne Village and one in down town Matthews, behind Carolina Beer Temple.) And with summer fast approaching, this is going to be the place to be!
It is a cozy, family friendly atmosphere that really strives to bring people together. It strives to bring the community together. The Local Scoop aims to support local businesses by incorporating as many fresh ingredients as possible in their ice cream. And the way they do that is by reaching out to small farms for all of their ice cream recipies!
Hey, that does not sound like a bad thing in my book!
They offer a variety of different flavors as well as dairy and non-dairy options. And there are also gluten-free options and allergy accommodation as well.
Hands down cookie dough is my favorite flavor! IYKYK right?
I have had their cookie dough before, but when I had it on Monday, man it hit the spot! It was so creamy and rich! Melt in your mouth, delicious!
If you're out and about this summer, this would be a great place to take the kiddos, or family visiting from out of town. You could go to celebrate a birthday or any kind of milestone event!
Or, if you're like me, you could just treat yourself every now and then!
Whatever you decide, The Local Scoop has you covered!
Special thanks to The Local Scoop and Ralph for having me and taking the time to talk to me a bit!
I will be back soon! =D
