5 Reasons to Kick Off Spring With Ice Cream

Just because we’re biased doesn’t mean we’re wrong! There are so many things to love about our favorite sweet treat, and we’re here today to convince you that ice cream is far more than just a summer staple. Here are five reasons you should kick off spring with ice cream!

Sweet Anticipation

If you’re not one for the cold, you might have muscled through the winter months without a certain frozen delicacy. But now that warmer days are on their way, what better way to celebrate than to throw off that hat and gloves and grab a spoon instead? Ice cream reminds us that better days are coming, and for many of us, recalls happy childhood memories of sweltering afternoons spent with sweet sugar highs and dripping cones. What says “spring and summer” like ice cream does?

Quality Time

Going out for ice cream is a great way to spend time with family and friends. The spring season’s penchant for new beginnings means this might be just the time to talk to someone new, and the way to anyone’s heart is through their stomach! Whether you’re trying to woo a new date or have fun with your kids, grabbing a cup or cone together is a wonderful place to start. Cheers to relationships, new and old!

Out and About

If your preferred ice cream parlor is local (hint hint), it’s a great excuse to venture out into the great outdoors for an evening walk or midday break. We all need to get away from the hustle and bustle to just breathe for a while, and there’s no better place to do so than in the fresh air. Pocket your phone for an hour or two and be in the moment, whether you’re strolling with friends, family, or taking some time to be alone with your thoughts. It’s okay to take a break– especially when there’s ice cream involved!

Colors of the Rainbow

Pastels are the color palette of spring, and ice cream is perfectly able to fit the bill! From lovely strawberries and cream to eclectic blueberries and lime, our favorite frozen dessert can be any color of the rainbow. At Norwood, we love to incorporate fresh fruit and in-season produce into our rotating flavors, so you never know what might pop up and when! All the more reason to visit us often…

Just Because

Okay, so maybe this last one is a bit of a cheat, but it’s dessert! What better reason is there to indulge than no reason at all? Sometimes spontaneity makes for the best experiences, especially when it comes to ice cream. If you happen to be in the neighborhood, pop in for a scoop of handcrafted spring cheer in a fresh waffle cone!
