The choice of flavors is amazing. There had to be 30 to 40 different flavors and combinations. I even tried the marshmallow creme topping. Yum! Can't wait to go back again.

Tons of flavors. Local small business owned by a very friendly young woman. My family has visited this little shop every year while we are here on vacation. Clean, pleasant staff, lots of fun flavors, reasonable pricing.

Refreshing crushed ice in a cup with almost any flavor or combination you can imagine. The young granddaughters needed one every day. A good treat for them and for me also. Don't miss it. Go there.
