Summer is the perfect season for sitting outside, soaking up the sunshine and sipping cold treats with friends and family. Twin City Sweets is one of Winston-Salem’s most charming ice cream shops sporting tasty desserts in style. What started as a small venture at Cook’s Flea Market in 2017 slowly progressed into a permanent location at 2594 West Clemmonsville Road in 2019. Spend hours enjoying a nice day on Twin City Sweets’ outdoor patio over a sundae (or three) and other snacks.
At this location, expect to find sweets such as honey roasted or cinnamon sugar pecans, almonds, cashews and peanuts, in addition to countless flavors of ice cream. Enjoy scoops alone or indulge in one of Twin City Sweets’ delicious signature ice cream sundaes. Triad locals rave about customer favorite “The Old Salem” sundae, which consists of your choice of butter pecan or vanilla ice cream, Moravian cookies, caramel syrup, gold sprinkles and whipped cream.
Reminiscent of every family’s favorite “dirt cake” dessert, Twin City Sweets offers customers “The Winston Worm” sundae, incorporating cookies and cream ice cream, crushed Oreo cookies, chocolate and caramel syrup, whipped cream and gummy worms. In the mood for something on the fruitier side? Try “The Bailey Banana” for a gourmet spin on banana pudding, made with banana pudding ice cream, Nilla Wafers, whipped cream and (you guessed it) banana pudding.
Aside from creative sundaes and ample outdoor seating for enjoying warm weather, what sets Twin City Sweets apart from other ice cream shops in the area is its sundae theme weeks. This month, visit the location to celebrate Christmas in July with holiday-themed decorations and sundaes integrating flavors such as peppermint, eggnog and more.
Past theme weeks have included Harry Potter-themed sundaes, namely the “Volde-S’mores” sundae with graham crackers, chocolate and a Voldemort cupcake topper. Additionally, video game lovers enjoyed May’s Princess Peach Sundae for a springtime flavor sporting an all-time favorite Super Mario Bros. character. What keeps customers coming back for themed sundaes isn’t the taste alone; the creativity that goes into naming and designing the sundaes never ceases to impress loyal Twin City Sweets lovers month by month.
This July, hop on the bandwagon and join in on the themed sundae fun. Twin City Sweets is open on Thursdays and Fridays from 5:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays from 2:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. Follow along with the Twin City Sweets team, see the latest sundaes and stay up to date on operating hours by following Twin City Sweets @twincitysweets on Instagram and checking out the team’s Facebook page.
