Located on Woodward Ave in Downtown Ferndale, Treat Dreams is a local favorite scooping out some wild and crazy flavors. Mac and Cheese, Chocolate Covered Potato Chip, & Brown Sugar Ham are just a few of the homemade flavors this ice cream shop is whipping up. The flavors change so stop in to see what’s on the menu.
Raspberry Jalapeno: I tried a sample and it was sweet and spicy, but the jalapeno just wasn’t doing it for me. I think sweet goes better with Habanero Pepper, rather than Jalapeno.
Sunday Breakfast: Maple ice cream with pieces of bacon and waffle. Josh got it in a milkshake which was a good move, but after a while it wasn’t cold anymore. The maple ice cream was delicious, but the bacon tasted more like bacon bits then the real thing and became soggy about halfway through. Props to the idea!
Salted Carmel & Butterbeer Sundae: The Butterbeer was a combo of butterscotch ice cream and Vernors flavored ice cream. The Butterbeer was sweet and delicious. I’m not huge on butterscotch, but the Vernor’s seemed to balance it out making it not super sweet.
The Salted Carmel was terrible! I’ve had Salted Carmel flavored frozen yogurt @ Yogurtopia & a Salted Carmel Mocha Frapp @ Starbucks and both were tasty, This ice cream was so bitter it tasted as though I took a swig of OJ after brushing my teeth. I get the whole sweet compliments salty deal, but this was just straight up bitterness. I ate about half of it trying trick myself into liking it, and it still didn’t work.
I was disappointed that I couldn’t try the Chocolate Covered Potato Chip ice cream, but there’s always next time. With all the weird and wacky flavors there are bound to be a couple I wasn’t a fan of, but I will definitely be back. I’m just dying to know what the heck Mac & Cheese ice cream tastes like! If you are sick of the same old boring ice cream, check out Treat Dreams for some different, interesting flavors.
