Crinkle cut dill pickle chips coated in a light breading with a hint of spice.  Deliciously deep fried for your enjoyment $4.25.

Enjoy ice cream swirled with a blend of premium roasted coffee with smooth chocolate accents or the season’s ripest raspberry flavor of sweetness with a bit of tart, swirled into your ice cream cone, sundae, parfait or flurry.  Add your favorite topping or candy for your own personal creation.

Try a caramel or salted caramel apple sundae or shake, or a snickers/green apple flurry! A refreshing essence of cool, crisp harvest apples.  The ice cream alone tastes like apple pie ala mode!

COCONUT FLAVORBURST  Returning for a 5th season by popular demand!  Enjoy this escape to paradise with a tropical treat of summer sweetness not only as a cone, but as the ice cream in your Sundae, Parfait or Flurry (no extra charge).
