Although Hooligan's Deli and Ice Cream is a popular snack destination for students, it caters to all ages with a multifarious menu of sandwiches and sweet treats. Pop in after work or after watching a heated Scrabble match between rival mascots to snag afternoon fuel, such as a turkey club ($5.85) or a Hooligan's hoagie ($6.50), which features warm cuts of turkey breast, ham, and roast beef swaddled within a plush sub roll. Straight from the grill, a prime-rib sandwich ($7.80) tackles carnivorous hankerings with six ounces of succulent prime rib, and a veggie burger ($5.35) quells leaf-lust with a patty crafted from a blend of fresh vegetables and grains. Witness the careful stacking abilities of dairy scoopers as they heap together flavored ice cream on a cone ($1.38–$4.30), or excavate the icy drifts of hot fudge, butterscotch, and pineapple on a sundae ($3.95) with a spoon or pocket-sized ice auger.
Secret of the Islands' natural bath and beauty products nourish and soften the skin to imbue a healthy glow. The company's artisans follow a Bahamian family recipe to make an exfoliating salt scrub infused with tropical aromas, and they blend vitamin E into face cream to reduce the appearance of fine lines. Although the product recipes come from the tropics, the products themselves are made locally in South Carolina.
