Nothing screams summer quite like ice cream. And, at Summit Creek, there’s no better way to cool off during the dog days than with a scoop or two. Luckily, just beyond your doorstep lie several shops, pop-ups and parlors with your favorite frozen treats to feed your best summer yet. So, sneak a peek below at what we’re devouring this season.
Ice Cream from Eli’s
Eli’s Old Fashioned Ice Cream and Soda Fountain is a Provo staple, serving up delicious flavors and floats in a historic building that once served as a bank vault. While the shop also features a menu of delicious soda fountain eats, their ice cream is an unwavering winner. Stick to the classics and order a double scoop on a sugar cone, or branch out and try one of their seasonal flavors like salted caramel and chocolate. And, better yet, you can enjoy live music while indulging in your favorite treat.
Sundae from Rockwell
One of Provo’s most sought-after ice cream shops, Rockwell, has a consistent line out the door for a reason: their super fresh and creamy homemade ice cream is amongst the best in Utah. Their ever-changing menu features unique flavors like honeycomb, peanut butter oreo and blueberry basil with ingredients freshly picked from Snuck Farm. But, why choose? Opt for the Rockwell sundae and combine your favorites with chocolate sauce, butterscotch or even their famous peanut butter ooey gooey cake.
Shave Ice from Lani’s
If you’re yearning for a frozen treat but don’t want to feel weighed down before an afternoon of adventure, head to Lani’s in Spanish Fork for their delicious shave ice. Hailing from the North Shore of Oahu, Lani’s serves up the classic Hawaiian treat that’s similar to a snow cone but far fluffier with a scoop of vanilla ice cream at the bottom, to boot. Try the quintessential mango or coconut, or taste the unique local flavors of Hawaii with lychee or Li Hing Mui.
Ice Cream Sandwich from The Penguin Brothers
If it’s an ice cream sandwich that you’re craving, no one does it better than The Penguin Brothers. There’s a chance you’ve seen their pastel pink trunk meandering the streets of Utah Valley, but their storefront in Provo is the true ice cream mecca. They’re baking up a snickerdoodle, chocolate chip, oatmeal and double fudge storm, topping the cookies with an array of their best flavors. Order “The Breakup” for a chocolate explosion, complete with double fudge cookies and chocolate sea salt ice cream, or choose the “Scout Camp” for the ultimate flavors of summer, complete with double fudge and chocolate chip cookies piled high with s’mores ice cream.
