A person reading this blog for the first time will probably wonder, “Does she ever actually cook?” I do, I really do!! But just not recently. The past two weeks have been a blur and left me with not much time or energy for cooking, but I still did a TON of eating! So at least if you’re in Grand Rapids you’ll know where to find the good stuff if you’re just not in the mood to cook for yourself.

After making three visits to Furniture City Creamery in one week, the other night Mumra and I decided to stop at Spoonlickers. We were at the Eastown location at 1551 Wealthy Street, but you can find the other locations HERE.

Like Furniture City Creamery, the flavors at Spoonlickers change every so often.

They always have at least two vegan flavors. Hooray!

There are a few places around town with this setup (Pump House and Bloop being the other two I’m aware of). You grab a bowl and fill it with as much ice cream/sorbet/frozen yogurt your little heart desires,

choose from an assortment of toppings, and then put it on the dreaded scale to find out how much damage you’ve done…

I went with the Pistachio and Chocolate flavors, with a short squeeze of Pistachio hidden under a big ol’ pile of Chocolate.

I was happily surprised to see warm vegan chocolate sauce.

Mine is topped with crushed bits of Nutter Butter cookies, a homemade strawberry sauce, and the warm chocolate sauce. Like a PB&J on steroids, ya know, in a good way.

Mumra got the same ice cream flavors, simply drizzled with chocolate sauce and sprinkled with pecans. She did say the pecans seemed a little stale – oops!

It’s kind of a neat place – but it is not goth if that’s what you were thinking, just decorated for Halloween 🙂

Aaaaaaaand if you wanna take some ice cream home, you can buy it by the pint. And there are vegan flavors available in the pints, too! I didn’t buy any this time, but I hope I’ll get a chance to try the Vegan Blueberry Frozen Yogurt.
