A delightful summer day in Sevierville can be even better when it involves an ice cream cone. This quintessential summer treat is tastiest on a hot day but can be enjoyed year-round at several Sevierville shops. Set aside a few moments to sample the wonderfully sweet flavors at these local favorites:
Cruze Farm Ice Cream
This small chain is a Knoxville staple, but it can also be found on the Parkway in Sevierville. The cheery aesthetics make the atmosphere at Cruze Farm nearly as enticing as the soft-serve, as you’ll discover the second you step inside this dreamy world.
A variety of flavors are available, with daily options encouraging return trips so you can try ’em all. What’s more, multiple flavors can be mixed in a single cup or cone to create a heavenly combination. Unique options include lavender honey, espresso, and brown butter.
Adina’s Sweet Shop
A wide variety of treats can be found at Adina’s Sweet Shop. This is a Sevierville go-to when you’re craving fudge, pie, pastries, and cupcakes. Any of these treats taste better when combined with the shop’s homemade ice cream.
If you’re feeling especially hungry — or you’re willing to split your order with a friend — you’ll opt for the banana split, which can include multiple ice cream flavors and a generous serving of whipped cream. Order whichever treat you find most compelling before you enjoy it at one of the benches in front of this rustic-style shop.
Buzzed Bull Creamery
With locations springing up all over the country, Buzzed Bull Creamery is quickly making a name for itself with ice cream concoctions infused with your favorite alcohol. Order your creation “buzzed” and choose your flavor, base (such as vegan/non-dairy, sorbet, or ice cream), and toppings, as well as the drink of your choice.
Fear not teetotalers and folks under 21: Buzzed Bull’s delicious desserts can be enjoyed without alcohol — and with signature recipes like Death By Chocolate, Dreamsicle, and Strawberry Shortcake, there’s something for everyone on the menu. Locations in Sevierville and Pigeon Forge give locals and visitors a chance to grab their dessert by the horns and get buzzed.
The Apple Valley Creamery and Bake Shop
Take a step into the past at the Apple Valley Creamery and Bake Shop. This old-fashioned bakery and ice cream parlor serves a variety of homemade goodies. Choosing just one order can be tricky, but you can’t go wrong with a double scoop served in a waffle cone. Ice cream sundaes, shakes, and malts are also available, as is delectable fruit cobbler topped with a huge scoop of ice cream. Take your time as you browse dozens of flavors — and be sure to savor while taking in the quaint atmosphere.
Edible cookie dough has exploded in popularity over the last couple of years, and with places such as Knox Dough offering up delectable bites of chocolatey goodness, it’s easy to see why. Another somewhat new innovation in the world of sweets? Rolled ice cream, which is also on the menu at Knox Dough.
Enjoy both cookie dough and rolled ice cream at locations in Sevierville, Maryville, and, of course, Knoxville. Perhaps the tastiest treat at Knox Dough is the cookie dough milkshake, which combines the best of both worlds as chewy cookie dough blends with hand-scooped ice cream for a flavorful treat that is impossible to resist.
With locations in Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, and Sevierville, it’s clear that the Chocolate Monkey is a Smoky Mountain favorite. The Sevierville location is easy to find on the Parkway, where locals and tourists alike stop in for caramel apples, truffles, and many other delicacies. When it’s hot out, however, nothing beats a simple scoop of ice cream. The friendly service is the cherry on top of this wonderful dessert experience.
Sundaes, shakes, and simple scoops are all available along the Parkway and throughout the lovely town of Sevierville. Take a break from your busy day and rediscover the joy of savoring delightfully sweet ice cream.
