All the delicious offerings at Adina’s aptly named Sweet Shop are made with fresh ingredients using family recipes that have been passed down throughout the generations. The ice cream is even homemade from a local creamery. Adina’s Sweet Shop has become a welcome tradition for many who stop by on the way in or back from a vacation in the Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg areas. Consequently, they have become something of a local landmark with many visitors saying they offer the highest quality and most flavorful dessert options around.

In addition to the scrumptious offerings in desserts, including locally made ice cream, Adina’s Sweet Shop also has a category of “Tipsy Sweets.” Options like the Blackberry Moonshine Cookie, which is made from scratch and contains the best Blackberry Moonshine from the Tennessee Legend Distillery is one choice. Also available in the “Tipsy Sweet” category is the Hammershine Moonshine Cookie, which is made of Hammershine Moonshine from Tennessee Legend Distiller and is not for the faint of heart as it sits at 120 proof!

An interesting note about the bottles of shine that are utilized to make the delectable treats, with every bottle purchased, a portion of the proceeds benefit the Guns to Hammers Construction Company. This nonprofit organization is committed to helping Veterans with disabilities by providing home improvement projects, allowing them to live independently. The company mascot is a lovable English Bulldog named Jack Hammer.
