  • Tropical Dreams Hawaiian Creamery
    Tropical Dreams infuses conventional flavors of ice cream, gelato, shaved ice, and sorbet with exotic fruits imported from the Aloha State. Like a young, idealistic politician, the premium-flavor ice cream contains only 10% air, creating a creamier consistency than standard ice cream—which is generally 40%–60% air. Such creamy concoctions include chocolate coconut macadamia nut ($3.85/medium). In the from-scratch gelato, the shop’s ice-cream artisans blend together puréed locally grown fruit as well as fruits flown in from Hawaiian farms for popular flavors that include mango and white-chocolate pineapple ($4.05/medium). For nondairy deliciousness, sink teeth into passion-orange-guava ($3.85/medium) sorbet, which is served in a coconut bowl ($1 extra) that can be bashed open by a ukulele.

  • Marble Slab Creamery South Jordan
    The warm aroma of freshly baked waffle cones envelops every nook and cranny of Marble Slab Creamery, revving up guests’ senses with the promise of impending decadence. As the hand-rolled cones tan in their ovens, the store’s staff bustles about the premises whipping up fresh batches of super-premium ice cream in the on-site creamery and helping patrons select a flavour from a list of more than 50 options. This chef-driven dedication to gourmet ice cream began in 1983 with the company’s founding in Houston, Texas, when two French chefs were enlisted to create a recipe for Marble Slab Creamery’s signature sweet-cream ice cream using their culinary expertise. Today, staffers utilize the frozen-slab technique of ice-cream architecture, scooping each customer’s choice of ice cream and mixins onto a chilled marble slab to mix the separate elements into one customized mélange. Though specializing in cone-based ice-cream treats, Marble Slab Creamery also offers a menu full of other scream-worthy confections including cakes, shakes, and ice cream cupcakes.
