Since leaving the world of banking in 2010 to open Treat Dreams, founder Scott Moloney—a self-proclaimed “mad scientist of ice cream” according to an article in Hour Detroit—has dazzled area taste buds with his roster of more than 280 flavors. Eschewing traditional tastes for unconventional flavors and exotic combinations such as rose petal, brown-sugar ham, and pistachio wasabi, Scott handcrafts each batch of cone-dwelling treats onsite to ensure freshness and maintain artistic control over his masterpieces.
Scott strives to support the community at large by forging his icy wares from locally sourced ingredients and the carboys of Jack Frost's personal ice cellar. Eager to sate the appetites of all who pass through his doors, Scott caters to dietary restrictions by whipping up batches of lactose-free sorbets and vegan ice creams made with rice or coconut milk.
