Did you know July is National Ice Cream Month?
Did you know a lap around the interior of Broadway at the Beach is roughly one mile?
Did you know you can walk a mile around Broadway all while enjoying some sweet treats along the way from six different ice cream shops?
So put on your sneakers, sandals or flip flops, we are taking a tasty tour of Broadway at the Beach!
First Stop: The New Stop…
Our journey begins with the newest ice cream that has pulled into Broadway… Waffles & Cream. Located near Joe's Crab Shack, this ice cream truck delivers more than just a scoop of the good stuff, but they also serve it on top of a warm waffle with all the dessert fixins! Here you can create your own sundae, enjoy ice cream waffle nachos or try a signature bowl including the Broadway Bowl featuring a waffle bowl with a white chocolate and rainbow sprinkled rim and two scoops of strawberry ice cream, topped with bits of strawberry glazed donuts, strawberry sauce, rainbow sprinkled and whipped cream! One word… YUM!
Second Stop: Sweet Molly's
Next we head west to the other new ice cream destination to land at Broadway at the Beach, Sweet Molly's Creamery. Located across from Yamato's Japanese Steakhouse, this light bite eatery will have you waggin' your tail just like the shop's canine companion and namesake, Molly! This family-owned and operated ice cream shop creates more than 20 unique ice cream, frozen yogurt and sorbet flavors! Some of our favorite flavors include, Chocolate Pecan Stir, Cotton Candy Crazy and Cookie Dough Crumble!
As we make our way further west from Sweet Molly's, we continue our journey past some of our other sweet treat favorites including It'Sugar, The Fudgery and Wee R' Sweetz!
Ladies and Gentleman… Ben & Jerry's!
This legendary duo of ice cream creators have a double dose of goodness with two locations at Broadway. The first one on our tasty trek is Ben & Jerry's South near Liberty Brewery & Grill. Our favorites? Chunky Monkey, Cherry Garcia and the classic, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.
Three down… three to go!
The Classics Of Kilwins
Now that we have sampled the sweetness and walked along the southern end of Broadway, it's time to cross the bridge near WonderWorks, and into the Mediterranean Village to the next stop, Kilwins!
From confectionary creations to fudge and candies, you can find everything to satisfy your sweet tooth, but we are on a mission for ice cream and that's one item you will not want to pass up on at this sweet shop! Our go-to at Kilwins has to be the Southern Praline Pecan in a waffle cone!
Two to go... we've got this!
After Kilwins, we will start our way down past The Avenue and Paula Deen's Family Kitchen to our second stop into a Ben & Jerry's, this one on the north side of Broadway. Same great tastes, but with a different view of Lake Broadway where you can enjoy the flavors of Cinnamon Buns, Chocolate Shake It and The Tonight Dough all while watching the Beach Rider Jet Boat go by!
Now that we are closing in on that mile around Broadway, we have one more ice cream stop and this one takes us to Heroes Harbor, home of Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, River Street Sweets and Cold Stone Creamery where you mix in your own unique flavors or try one of their signature creations! From the Birthday Cake Remix, to the Cookie Minster to the Mud Pie Mojo, it is hard to top one of their signature selections, in their freshly baked waffle cones! In fact, the only thing you will want to top off their ice creams maybe a cherry!
So there you have it, a deliciously tasty tour of Broadway at the Beach, good not only during National Ice Cream month, but every day of the year!
