As Little Rock's biggest Loblolly Creamery fan-boy (bordering on obsessive), I could barely contain myself when they announced that today (December 21) only, all pints of their wonderful ice cream will be on sale for $3 at the Green Corner Store on South Main. This stuff is so good that I think it's a bargain at the normal $6 price, but if you haven't had a chance to try this homemade-style ice cream you should head down and take advantage of the sweet, sweet sale. And for all of you who know how good Loblolly is, make sure you stock up — the creamery is shutting down for three weeks in January for some research and development time.
I spoke with Frozen Goodie Genius Rachel Boswell, and she says that they have double vanilla, chocolate sorbet, salted caramel, chocolate pistachio, chocolate pumpkin, persimmon sorbet, raspberry fromage, spicy thai, peppermint stick, rum vanilla, blueberry port and possibly more flavors available, and I personally guarantee that each of these is worth wrapping your lips around.
The $3 deal cannot be combined with any other coupons or specials, and supplies are limited, so it behooves you all to form a sugar-craving mob and descend with force and fury on the soda fountain to get your fix. The Green Corner Store is located at 1423 Main Street, and the Loblolly crew will be scooping pints from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. (or until the pint containers run out). Ice cream not your thing? Well, I'm sorry for you, but you can still get a fresh-made phosphate, egg cream, or do some last minute holiday shopping from all the local products available. And if the world doesn't end today, you'll be ready for the best New Year's resolution possible: eating more ice cream.
