On a hot summer day, few activities compare to licking a cold tree branch, which is why an overwhelming majority of children choose ice cream instead. Stick a spoon in the next heat wave with today's deal: for $4, you get $8 worth of soft-serve ice cream at d'Lites Emporium, a low-calorie, low-carb, low-fat, low-sugar, cholesterol-free, and guilt-free soft-serve shop in the Metro West Village shopping center.
At 50 calories per serving, the only things missing from d'Lites ice cream are artificial sweeteners and sadness. Each day at the shop, two specialty flavors guest star (chocolate and vanilla are available every day), including concoctions such as honey-roasted pecan, piña colada, English toffee, blackberry, and more. In all, d'Lites has more than 200 flavors in its recipe Rolodex. The shop slings soft serve into cups ($2.39–$4.19), cake cones ($2.99), and luxurious chocolate waffle cones ($4.09), as well as into specialty creations such as shakes ($3.09), sundaes ($3.89), and their signature Banana d'Lites ($4.19). If you want to shower a newlywed in sprinkles, order them and any other extra toppings for $0.55–$0.75 each, and if you're on the run, grab a to-go pint ($5.09).
As a healthier alternative to eating heavier ice creams and sticks of butter on a stick, d'Lites soft serve is a legitimate indulgence for calorie counters and carefree kids alike. One woman even lost 80 pounds after discovering d'Lites ice cream, and though her story isn't typical, it certainly is deliciously true.
Customers of d'Lites Emporium are too busy enjoying their frozen treats to write many reviews of their experiences. Readers of the Southwest Orlando Bulletin named d'Lites Best Dessert Locale in their 2010 Best of Southwest poll. Three Google Mappers give d'Lites Emporium five stars.
- The ice cream is amazing. I stock up my freezer with ice cream and eat it every night. The best part about it is that I have actually lost weight. – Tommy, Google Maps
