Whether you’re in town for a visit or live in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains, you absolutely have to stop by the Apple Valley Creamery and Bake Shop. This small ice cream shop and bakery is a not-so-hidden treasure that’s beloved by all in Sevierville, Tennessee. Day in and day out, they dedicate their time to whipping up handmade ice cream and baked goods that’ll surely knock your socks off.
No matter what time of the year it is, they have over 60 flavors of ice cream on tap, ready for you to order any way you like it. They can just put your scoops in a cone or make you a milkshake, float, or throw your favorite flavors right on top of your brownie, cookie, or banana bread.
Speaking of bread, they have every flavor of dessert bread you could want plus the basics, like sourdough. Their signature Apple Cinnamon Bread is scratch-made using fresh apples sourced from local growers plus all the finest ingredients money can buy. The result is out-of-this-world flavor with a texture only achieved through decades of baking experience.
You can’t just visit this shop once and call it good either because their seasonal fare is more than worth the extra trips. Throughout the year, they roll out specialty bread, like Pumpkin Spice Bread and Orange Cranberry Bread, in full loaves, mini loaves, and muffin sizes. They also change up their brownie additions, cookie varieties, and ice cream flavors as the seasons go by.
Must-try items on their menu include:
Their Milkshakes pack a powerful punch of flavor and a smooth consistency you’ll want to sip on all day. You can select just one ice cream flavor or several to create the perfect shake time and time again. Although they are made big enough to share, you won’t want to give up the straw after you get a taste.
Apple Coffee Cake
Available as a full loaf, mini loaf, or muffins, their Apple Coffee Cake will have you planning your trip back before you even leave the shop. They manage to pack a full orchard’s worth of flavor into every bite, likely due to their commitment to using apples from East Tennessee. The sweet crumb topping brings everything together as it provides a bit of crunch to counter the bread’s melt-in-your-mouth texture.
In addition to premade baked goods, they sell their dry mixes by the batch. Each one only requires a few key ingredients, like oil, applesauce, and eggs, to make up to two dozen muffins or two full loaves of deliciousness. You’ll definitely want to try their Apple Walnut Bread, Apple Coffee Cake, and Blackberry Bread to start.
If you’d like to take your next special occasion to the next level, ask about their handmade cakes and cupcakes. Like all their offerings, all their cakes are made from scratch using the highest quality ingredients. The cakes look just as good as they taste, thanks to their incredible decorating expertise and commitment to going above and beyond with all their designs.
