We were on our way out and passed by Stephan's Sugar Shack. The staff was great and the beach scene set up with unexpected and pleasant. I'm really writing this because the options took us by surprise. We had two servings each...one of Hershey and one of Italian Ice but we'll come back for the Dippin Dots.
