Frozen Fun

Stay Cool This Summer With Sweet Treats Around Town

The summer heat is here, and there is no better way to beat the July swelter than with a frozen treat. 


Take a drive through ScoopDog in North Little Rock for delicious custards and classic 100% beef hot dogs. Owner Joe Yanosick calls it a picnic all year long.

Since 1999, this family-owned business has offered freshly made frozen custard boasting fun names like The Standard Poodle and the Chocolate Lab. 

You'll always be met with a smiling face whenever you come and leave with a full stomach.

Loblolly Creamery

Nestled in SOMA, Loblolly Creamery makes everything from scratch, sourcing many ingredients from local farms, Marketing Director Tabitha Cummings says.

They're known for rotating fun flavors, two of which will be back this summer: the Mighty Peach and the Little Rocket Pop Sorbet. 

Mark your calendars for National Ice Cream Day, July 21, which they have dubbed National Loblolly Day to mark the anniversary of its opening in 2017.


With their flagship location in Hot Springs, Scoops has just added a new store on Broadway Street. 

Scoops is known for daily slow-churned ice cream in 25 flavors. Beyond ice cream, Scoops offers smoothies, coffee and sweet treats.

Le Pops

Found in the beautiful Heights District, it is the perfect place to pop into for a gourmet ice pop. 

Since 2017, this family-owned establishment has provided quality handmade pops to the community, ensuring that they use the best ingredients they can find!


If you can't decide between a scoop of rich ice cream or a bite of rich fudge, you won't have to choose at Kilwins, which can be found in the River Market District.

Stepping into the shop will make you feel like you're in an old-time soda fountain, and the classic ice cream will make you glad you came. 


At Shake's, off of West Haven Drive, they use old-fashioned processes to ensure their frozen custard is great.

Their menu offers the custard dressed up in classic sundae fashions, but you can also mix in different toppings or opt for a float.
