Happy’s Ice Cream in St Pete
We discovered a new ice cream shop that has delicious options for kids, plus boozy ice cream for adults! Happy’s Ice Cream is located in a shopping center just a few miles north of downtown that we’ve driven by 100 times. Turns out this plaza holds at least three places with excellent Google Reviews!
Happy’s is owned by husband and wife team
We’ll post on all 3 places, starting with Happy’s Ice Cream! With 70 reviews, this fairly new locally owned shop has a 5 STAR rating and we can see why. Owned by a husband and wife team, they simply want to bring a smile to everyone by making and serving delicious small batch ice cream.
Allana is a St Pete native
“The Happy’s family has a deep passion for cooking, creating, and community.” Turns out, Allana was born and raised in St. Pete. In fact, her grandfather is renowned as the first to bring ‘authentic Chinese flavors’ to St. Pete in the 1940’s, her inspiration for continuing the culinary traditions.
Allana’s husband Marco found his inspiration from his family’s pastry business. He moved to St Pete in the 90’s and is the ice cream maker extraordinaire, with a total love of sweets. “We don’t just sell it, we make it with care and passion in small batches weekly.”
Flavors Rotate and are made in small batches
The flavors rotate fairly frequently as they make only a small portion at a time. In addition to cones and cups, check out their other offerings such as the brownie batter shake, which Colt loved. They also serve adult flavors, which were Rum Raison and Cinnamon Toast on the day we visited. If you’re feeling rowdy like I was, have them mix the two together! Oh man, sorry Breyers, you’re not Happy’s boozy ice cream! So good.
When you have a moment check out this locally owned small business and show them some love!
