    During the spring and summer months, I like to go to Nelsons for frozen custard, Handel’s for their milkshakes, and Bowlology for their acai bowls.

    During the spring time and summer time, I like to stop by Boba Hut and get a honeydew green milk tea with strawberry popping boba, Baskin Robbins for a banana royale—daiquiri ice and strawberry cheesecake flavored ice cream with marshmallow topping and Sonic to get a medium banana milkshake.

    What a difficult question. I love dessert, and I am obviously an ice cream gal, so my favorite places have to be:
    Cold Stone
    Nothing bunt cakes
    Crepe Expectations

    2. Poppy’s Frozen Yogurt – Not as good as Menchie’s but is still really good fryo!
    3. Mora Iced Creamery @ DTS!! All the ice cream flavors are sooo good! You can’t go wrong with any flavor!

    My top three dessert spots are Somi Somi, T-Swirl Crepe, and Milkywave. The variety of options and close range of good restaurants make these the top dessert places for me.
