Heather Baker and Hilary Hunt are back for the next stop on the Ice Cream, Cakes & Shakes Bucket List. This week, the ladies beat the heat at Loblolly Creamery in Little Rock.
“We are rolling into another sweet week of the bucket list, and Heather we are at the perfect spot in SoMa,” Hunt says.
“It is all ice cream, cakes and shakes,” Baker responds, before the pair make their way inside to check out what the crew at Loblolly Creamery have in store.
The sweet spread of summertime deliciousness was almost too good to be true. Almost.
To get things started, the Loblolly crew heard Baker’s favorite flavor is salted caramel, so they whipped up a salted caramel milkshake. (Which she just had to get a sip of before the cameras started rolling.)
And since Hunt is lactose intolerant, they had something personalized for her as well: a cherry limeade freeze.
“They have something for everyone here,” Hunt says.
For round two, the gals went in for the tried-and-true America classic: ice cream cones. They had a few of their favorites from which to choose, each of which was scooped into Loblolly’s house-made, gluten-free cones. Baker showed off one of the fan favorites, the Arkansas Mud, and Hunt kept it dairy-free with the vegan PB Crunch.
For as much as the name Loblolly Creamery spells ice cream for most Arkansans, the spot also has plenty of other options. Like the homemade macarons, which Baker and Hunt were served on its Ultimate Flight, which includes six macarons and six mini-scoops of ice cream.
Then there are the oatmeal cream pies, which the duo was dying to dive into. And, of course, they had to try a couple of sundaes. Baker doubled-down on the brownie sundae and Hunt had a spoonful (or two) of the edible cookie dough sundae.
“Can we say scrumdiddlyumptious?” Baker says.
One of the coolest things about Loblolly Creamery that Baker and Hunt make sure to note is that everything can be taken to-go, and even picked up curbside. From pints of ice cream to bags of the many sweet treats, all of your favorites can be enjoyed just as well from home.
“We all scream for ice cream,” Baker says. “You’ll have to tune in next week to see where we end up next.”
