After lunch at Shoreline Brewery, we headed across the street to do some shopping at the Lighthouse Place Premium Outlets. It was a pretty miserable day. Cold. Rainy. Windy. Not a great day for an outdoor shopping trip, but we walked quickly and stayed under the overhangs to get to where we were going.
Down one of the side aisles, my mom noticed an ice cream shop. She was jonesing for dessert while we were at the restaurant but passed hoping we’d find something while we were shopping.
What we found was Scoops Old Fashioned Ice Cream. My mom didn’t even ask if anyone else wanted some, she just started heading that way hoping we would follow. We did.
Scoops is a small shop inside the outlet mall. They serve Sherman’s Ice Cream, fudge, and a few other menu items. I’m pretty sure my mom was going for ice cream, but after seeing the fudge, we all headed straight to that counter.
Without much effort, J and I found one that we wanted. Of course, it was the Chocolate Peanut Butter. We asked for two slices and the girl working asked how much we wanted. I was expecting her to just slice off a piece, but she was asking us how big of a piece we wanted. I just told her to hack off the end and we’d take it. J and I were going to split it and neither of us needed very much.
My mom got a slice of the Chocolate Pecan. She went through the same ordeal with figuring out how much she wanted. Once they got that figured out, it was added to the scale to come up with a final total of just a little over $11.
While the fudge was good, it was no Mackinac Island fudge. The slice that J and I got was very soft and gooey. It was a mess to eat because it just stuck to everything. My mom’s was made much better. It was much more solid and not nearly as messy. J and I divided our slice up but I think I ended up getting more.
Scoops seemed to be a hang out for the area college kids who were returning home for the summer from college. There was quite a large group starting to gather and this is what Scoops is good for. It’s a good break from shopping. Yup. A good break from shopping. It is what it is.
