We’re firm believers in the fact that a day in the Florida sun deserves the perfect cool down – a creamy and delicious ice cream sundae. And to fulfill that sweet craving, look no further than the newest addition to uptown San Marco’s array of restaurants and shops, The Scoop.
While The Scoop is situated in uptown St. Augustine, stepping inside is like being transported to a classic beachside ice cream parlor from when you were a kid. The shop’s quirky design features a pastel pelican, a logo owner Brent Beckett created after learning that a group of pelicans is called “a scoop.”
Just a few months ago, Brent opened The Scoop as a vibrant ice cream shop built for whipping up your favorite go-to desserts, like heavenly milkshakes, the perfect ice cream float, and soaring sundaes. And to see what this newcomer to the dessert scene of St. Augustine was offering, we decided to take a trip down to The Scoop to sample some sweet selections.
It was then that we happened upon the Cupcake Hot Fudge Sundae, a dessert filled with the most delectable of ingredients. To start, the sundae’s base features hefty scoops of a particularly creamy premium white chocolate ice cream with raspberry swirls and raspberry filled chocolate cups (it just jumped to the top of our list of favorite ice cream flavors). These deliciously classic scoops are adorned with genuine hot fudge and fluffy real whipped cream. To top it all off, one of The Scoop’s neighbors provided the final crowning glory – a LuLi’s Cupcakes Mini Chocolate Cherry Cupcake as a garnish.
We’re all for dessert collaborations, and this one is a doozy. It’s the perfect blend of sweet flavors, a classic ice cream treat taken to the next level with an out-of-this-world cupcake addition.
