Anna Marie's Ice Cream
Owners Heidi Williams and Laura Kenkel have been chums since middle school, finding their entrepreneurial passion after attending a three-day seminar at Ice Cream University. Now, the two ICU grads provide delectable homemade ice cream, cookies, and a cornucopia of frozen pastries with all-natural ingredients. Traditionalist tastebuds cling to a cup of pure, creamy vanilla ($3.60), but free-spirited buds crave butter pecan, and top that dairy mountain with blueberries, pineapples, and Butterfingers ($.50 each). Anna Marie's specialty sundaes up the ante of granular toppings, like the chocolate bubble sundae ($4.60), layered with chocolate syrup, marshmallow, whipped cream, and one cherry placed atop to benevolently rule its icy dominion. Customers on-the-go can take home a frozen turtle pie ($14.99), the chilled amalgamation of caramel, hot fudge, and pecans–the decadent, sugarcoated foil to grandma's wholesome apple pie. And Anna Marie's low-fat and low-carb offerings mean sweet-toothed dieters can still party like they're cruising through a galaxy governed by the laws of butterscotch.
