After a full day of fun in Sanford and Deland, I decided to hit one more ice cream spot before we called it a day. (Yes, I’d already had two dishes of ice cream, but it was important for science! And for you!)
Sweet Spot Creamery sells a ton of their own homemade treats in addition to ice cream. We tried lots of flavors, although if you’re gluten-free like me, you’ll have to skip a lot of them. It’s a cute setup inside.
Here’s what we tried:
Creme Brulee – This is very tasty, and definitely a fun flavor! It’s very good and unique.
Butterbeer – This is a vanilla base with a butterscotch swirl. I found the swirl especially satisfying, but I just wasn’t in the mood for another “vanilla with stuff” flavor. I would have preferred a butterbeer base, but next time I will try their butterbeer drink, which combines caramel and butterbeer and ice cream!
Raspberry Krispy Kreme – Oh, back in the old days this would have been my flavor! It’s a vanilla base with a raspberry syrup of some sort with chunks of donut. According to my husband, the donuts were a little dry – perhaps he would have preferred a cakier donut here. He said all of the elements were good, it just didn’t quite form a cohesive unit together.
Lemon Blueberry – This is AMAZING, with big, fresh-tasting blueberry chunks. It has a lemon base and cake pieces. It’s absolutely delightful (and bummer about the cake for us gluten-free folks.)
Chocolate Strawberry – This is a chocolate base with a chocolate shell and strawberry jam. It’s very creamy, light chocolate, without a ton of depth to it, but when combined with the texture of the chocolate pieces and the tasty strawberry jam it’s like a sundae in every bite! The strawberry chunks in the ice cream can be frosty, but the jam is consistent throughout and makes each bite delightful. This is very good, and it was my favorite of the visit.
All of the ice cream here was creamy, and their toppings are homemade. There’s also a keto flavor if that’s helpful for you! One scoop came to less then $3 before tax, so it was super reasonable or even cheap for the portions.
They seem to do best at the fruity stuff, but be sure to confirm up front any allergens that you may need to avoid. And if you love some seasonal holiday flavors, be sure to give them a visit! Their holiday menu looks incredible, particularly if you can eat gluten.
Thanks for the visit, Sweet Spot Creamery!
Take care friends, and happy eating!
