Welcome Summer With A Sweet Treat

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ICE CREAM! Nothing beats a delicious helping of ice cream to welcome summer 2019 in sunny Sarasota. Whether you crave a refreshing mint chocolate chip cone after spending the day on Siesta Key or have a sweet tooth for soft serve while shopping on Lakewood Ranch Main Street, there’s truly something for everyone ranging from guiltless dairy-free and gluten-free options to creamy custard.
Kilwins – St. Armand’s Circle
Who doesn’t want to smell freshly baked waffle cones and watch the tempting makings of fudge while in line for your scoop of ice cream? Kilwins is a town favorite found in the beautiful St. Armands Circle with locations all around the globe. Keep your eyes peeled for a new location coming soon to Waterfront in Lakewood Ranch!

Orange Octopus – Siesta Key
This ice cream shop is a Siesta Key gem that makes all their ice cream in-house in small batches to give their customers the creamiest ice cream experience. Try the popular Toasted Coconut or sink your teeth into the Oogey Gooey Brownie containing chunks of their own homemade brownie chunks.
Big Olaf – The Village in Siesta Key
One of the most beloved ice cream shops in Sarasota, Big Olaf is the perfect treat to top of your day lounging on Siesta Key beach or after having dinner in The Village. Pam’s favorite flavor is pistachio!

Sweetberries – Sarasota
Personalize your custard with optional concretes (comparable to Dairy Queen’s Blizzards). Try a fun new flavor of the day posted on their website and they also have a flavor calendar so you can peek ahead to see flavors to come!
D’Lites Shoppe – Lakewood Ranch
If you’re wanting a guiltless treat this summer, D’lights is the way to go. They offer options ranging from vegan & dairy free Nice Cream to keto soft serve that’s low in both sugar and carbs. They also offer coffee and cold brew options (yes, that is a photo of a cold brew ice cream float!!) that are local, organic, & direct trade.
