The chosen flavour-scoops are put on the slab and the mix-ins - which can be of a variety of nuts, candies or fruits depending on the choice of the customer, which are mixed with the ice cream to create a blended treat for everyone. The store also offers signature ice cream cakes, shakes, smoothies and sorbets.
