Sprinkles gets an ice cream makeover
There’s nothing revolutionary about ice cream (no offense, rocky road). But leave it to the company that invented a cupcake ATM to crank up the indulgence factor.
Dallas cupcake mavens, meet Sprinkles Ice Cream.
Adjacent to the city’s only Sprinkles cupcake store in Preston Center, this pretty parlor puts a premium on the warm-weather treat, offering a rotation of flavors made from all-organic California dairy.
What’s so revolutionary? Well, for starters you can order your ice cream in a red-velvet waffle cone (which is kind of slightly chocolaty). And then there are the flavors: salty caramel, coffee fudge almond, animal cookie and, believe it or not, Cap’n Crunch.
We couldn’t resist the latter on a recent broiling afternoon and were really taken with the vanilla ice cream studded with caramelized chunks of the cereal (which, to be honest, is too sugary for breakfast anyway).
Luckily, the Sprinkles folks haven’t forgotten where they came from. Go for a cupcake ice cream sandwich, cupcake sundae or even a cupcake shake (your choice of cupcake is blended into the ice cream).
Even the ice cream averse can get in on the caloric action; Sprinkles serves cookies too.
