What a sweet surprise it was to discover that Sweet Creme’s ice creams came at such a reasonable price! They had greater affordability than other ice cream shops in the city, making every visit feel like a treat-yourself moment without leaving a dent in your wallet. But, I must confess, as I eyed the tempting Blizzards, my heart sank slightly at their slightly overpriced tag.
And guess what? Staying true to my adventurous spirit, I stuck with the vanilla, and it didn’t disappoint. Though, they did offer an enticing option to upgrade to a chocolate base for a bit of extra cash. As for toppings, the choices were endless, allowing you to customize your dream dessert to perfection. So, with a range of delectable options and a pinch of creativity, Sweet Creme remains a sweet sanctuary where dreams meet desserts!
The service’s excellent inside the shop! The staff at Sweet Creme were like ice cream wizards, ready to conjure up a delightful experience. With smiles that could melt any heart and grace that made me feel like royalty, they guided me through their mouthwatering selection with genuine enthusiasm. I left the shop floating on a cloud of sweet satisfaction!
But hold your cones if you’re going for the drive-thru! As I eagerly placed my order, the minutes stretched like an eternity, and my excitement turned to impatience. I was torn between the comfort of my car and the sweet reward. But the packaging was a lifesaver, allowing me to take my ice cream wherever my heart desired.
However, I’m willing to give Sweet Creme the benefit of the doubt! Maybe, it was an off-day for the waiter when I ordered from my car, and that’s why the service left something to be desired. With that said, make your choice of service wisely.
Bonus Point: For a little something extra, do check out Sweet Creme’s beverage. They’re a world of their own. You can’t go wrong with any of them.
