Eat Arkansas blogger Kat Robinson has posted a quick review, accompanied by plenty of pictures, of a new ice cream parlor in Sherwood. It's called Scrumdiliumptious and Robinson describes the atmosphere as a cross between "Harry Potter" and "Willy Wonka." As evidence, she includes a picture of the parlor's signature cone: five stacked slices of chocolate, strawberry, pistachio nut, birthday cake and orange sherbet. Scrumdiliumptious is open from noon until 11 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 1 p.m. until 10 p.m. on Sunday. The address is 8000 Hwy. 107; the phone number is 501-835-3300.
