It is located on the corner of Maryland and Dale. In a delightful red and white building with a gigantic ice cream cone waving out to newcomers, “Welcome to Conny’s.”
All along the front is a porch where you order from. Being right on two busy roads, it gave me a sense of safety for my kids. If they stayed on the inside of the railing, they would be safe. A few benches are placed on this porch, and I sat my children down on it as we waited for our ice cream to be ready. And one by one, the cones came.
Conny’s is open from March to October at 11:00am. In the fall and the spring they close at 9:00 pm and in the summer 9:45 pm.
Let me tell you what makes Conny’s so special. They have over 24 flavors of soft serve ice cream. Flavors like cotton candy, pistachio, blackberry, chocolate, etc. The list of flavors is unbelievable.
I believe they can twist which ever flavor you want with vanilla, too. Or they can take the crunch topping and swirl it together on top of you cone.
If you want a dipped cone, you must get a vanilla, chocolate, or traditional twist cone. The remaining 24 flavors are too soft to dip. Not only can you get a dipped cone, you can get a dipped cone with crunch topping.
Case in point!
I was in heaven. Why not go for all the good stuff, right? So I enjoyed it, I did. I must confess with all the delectable goodness I should have chosen just one or the other. It tasted amazing, and I believe it would have tasted even more amazing if I had gone simple.
The kids all got cotton candy.
And it tasted incredibly exactly like cotton candy. Cleaning up their cones gave me a psychological sugar rush. And like I said, the special flavored cones were really soft. They melted quickly.
When you go to Conny’s bring an entire case of wipes. They will provide you with a handful of napkins which will help. The wipes, though, will be more helpful. First wait until the cone eaters are done because there is no use cleaning them up when the cone still exists!
