Loyal Hoppers gladly followed their favorite shop to its new location a couple of years ago. Who wouldn’t with flavors like Aztec Chocolate (made with cayenne and cinammon) and Chuck Berry sorbet (both pictured). Or try a scoop of cranberry Gorgonzola; it tastes just like cheesecake.

The Blue Bell, Mayfield, and Hershey ice creams are yummy, but if you don’t get a waffle cone, you’re missing out. The cinnamon and vanilla cones, are made-to-order and create a warm, delicious cradle for any flavor, among them banana pudding and Southern blackberry cobbler (pictured with a cinnamon cone).
