( – Woodbridge, Virginia

How I heard of this place: Drive-by. One of my travel companions was craving ice cream, and it was the first place we came upon on our long drive back to Arlington.

Type of cuisine: Frozen custard and a variety of knick-knacky snacks, including muffins and packaged goods, coffees and teas.

Ambiance: Walking up to the strip mall location, one would not expect much from the “Smart Art” red and blue signage outside of the flat, white-colored, single-story building. Entering through the double glass doors, one is immediately welcomed by a larger-than-life inflatable snowman, a three-foot tall Nutcracker and busy, cluttered room lit by yellowed fluorescent lights. The glass topped display cases showcase cakes, and other pastries, working down the line to the register and the back of the space, which includes the kitchen and a line of beverage cases. Pillars in the middle of the establishment separate the limited, hard seating area, where plastic tables and chairs are available for patrons to enjoy their snacks and refreshments.

What I ordered: Only two of us placed orders, mine being for the Drumstick ($2.99), frozen vanilla custard with pieces of waffle cone, chopped peanuts, and chocolate chunks in a waffle bowl dipped in chocolate with rainbow sprinkles (additional $0.99) and the second a small syrofoam cup of vanilla frozen custard with black cherry topping and hot fudge ($5.99).

What I loved: The waffle cone chunks in the custard.

Why I loved it: Quick, easy, with many options to satisfy any craving.

Cost: Low to average ($2.49-$6 per order of custard)
