More Than a Double Scoop

with one comment

A first visit to Myrtle Beach, hit up a few spots for shopping on one of the days and found attractions at Broadway at the Beach. Usually a sucker for ice cream, especially when it was getting a bit warm from all the walking, happened upon a location of The Fudgery. Like many fudge shops, you’re welcomed by the scent of sugary goodness of the varieties of fudge made on-site. Having been, pretty much, on a hangover from enjoying fudge between the Carolinas, the focus was on the ice cream.

Peanut butter fudge ice cream – absolutely.

Ordered a double scoop in a waffle cone and the friendly server was happy to oblige. Expecting a double scoop, the server hands over a giant cone that, clearly, includes more than two scoops – it was overwhelming. She explained their location happened to be changing suppliers and since the peanut butter fudge was pretty much at the bottom of the tub, she just emptied it out… into the cone. She said, “It may look weird,” yes, it looked weird, but even more delicious.

She caught me taking a photo of it, she says, “Yes, I did that. You can say I did that!”

The Fudgery has retail locations in 15 states.

Not Just a Rice Krispies Treat

leave a comment »

After multiple visits to Wilmington, North Carolina, if there’s anything that is a constant, it’s a visit to Kilwins. Whether it’s the ice cream or the amazing fudge, took a step to the right and browsed the chocolate section – the expansive chocolate section. It took a while to make a decision, with so many delectable options; Kilwins makes it very difficult to make a choice.

Narrowed it down to one of their homemade peanut butter cups or a chocolate covered rice krispies treat – got one of each. The rice krispies treats was amazing, it was soft and the chocolate coating was a great addition to the classic treat. Even picking up the treat, there was still a choice between white, milk, and dark chocolate – with or without sprinkles – again, Kilwins makes the decision-making process difficult.

…and there are still a multitude of options whenever the next visit will be.
