The Scoop about the Real Scoop Ice Cream Shop in Wolfville
Disclosure: Our family received an ice cream party at the Real Scoop Ice Cream Shop in Wolfville so we could have first-hand knowledge to share with you about this great new local business!
They Have Swings!
I can honestly say that I have never been in a food establishment that has swings!
Real Scoop Owner, Tammy, said they wanted to have something unique and fun in their new shop in Wolfville, and I can’t think of anything better than a swing!
We All Scream for Ice Cream!
All the ice cream at the Real Scoop is made onsite with real, quality ingredients. No preservatives. No chemicals. Everything you can pronounce and everything you’ll want to eat!
Choose your base flavour (Chocolate, Strawberry or Vanilla) and the price includes one mix-in of your choice.
The mix-ins are everything from cookie dough to Pop Tarts and Rice Krispie Squares! Just about anything you can imagine!
We opted for a little more traditional flavours like oreo crumbs, chocolate eggs and M&Ms.
You can immediately taste the homemade difference!
Then, one of the best parts is having it served in either a waffle cone or a bowl, all made freshly at the shop.
Besides ice cream, the Real Scoop makes and serves Belgian waffles made with authentic pearl sugar, the key ingredient in traditional Belgian Liege waffles!
On top of all that, they serve fair-trade coffee!
The Story Behind it All
Real Scoop’s owner, Tammy, told me that up until just recently, their family was living in Ontario. Tired of the hustle and bustle and the busy lifestyle, when their oldest daughter started attending Acadia, they decided to follow her here.
Tammy says she always wanted to open her own business. When she thought about what she loved – going camping and going for ice cream, she knew she had her business model.
Looking around Wolfville, there were no other ice cream shops in town, so decided to fill the void with the Real Scoop.
“The store matches perfectly the vision I had in my head!” says Tammy.
Tammy has experimented with the recipe and has perfected it with wholesome ingredients. She is proud of what she and her family has been able to build.
Stop in on a weekend and you might see all 4 of the family working behind the counter!
And, they have swings!
Right in front of the big picture window are 4 wooden swings. Have fun eating your homemade delicious ice cream or sipping your fair-trade coffee, and be sure to take a selfie!
The Real Scoop is a place you are going to want to come back to many times so you can try the different mix-ins and see what is on the menu that week!
