Over the years I have become less and less of a dessert gal. I used to love sweets, but I definitely prefer savory, salty, fruity, and just plain foods now. However, that is not always the case. There happen to be a few places in the Indy area that I love to get dessert or just a snack from.
Nicey is one of my favorite places in Indy. You can find it alongside the Monon Trail in Broad Ripple. Whenever I first tried Nicey I think I went back at least 1-2 times each week for the entire summer. Nicey is home to a delicious, natural popsicles. It has sweeter, creamier options and fruitier options as well. They have vegan and gluten-free options too if you have any dietary preferences or restrictions. There are many things I love about Nicey but I really love all of the unique flavor options. I like to try a new one each time I go unless I am obsessed with a flavor at that time. I like to go for the more unique options because I like to try new things and 9.9 times out of 10 I know I’ll love it. If you find yourself at Nicey, I have a few flavor recommendations: almond butter, avocado, dark chocolate sea salt, passion fruit, and pistachio.
If you are in the mood for a big scoop of classic, homemade ice cream, Handel’s is the place for you. There are a couple locations in the Indy area! I feel like I have been going to Handel’s forever and I would like to assume almost everyone likes Handel’s. There are many different flavors you can choose from, and like most ice cream places you can get shakes, sundaes, and more. I stick to the same few flavors when I go, just because I love them: Mint Chocolate Chip, Pistachio, and Coffee Chocolate Chip. When I was younger my favorites were Pineapple Sherbet, Cake Batter, and Peach (one of the summer flavors) in case you aren’t a fan of the others!
This place is so cute! I found out about Mrs. Curl from my sister who would go with her friends sometimes and constantly want to go ever since. Mrs. Curl is in Greenwood, IN, pretty close to Indy. It is a little outdoor ice cream stand with a pretty large sitting area, and very long lines (just shows how yummy it is). Mrs. Curl does have some food, but I go for the ice cream. What I really love about the ice cream is the prices and the fun twists that are added to a regular ice cream cone. You can get flavors along the edges of the ice cream, fun types of sprinkles and toppings (like in the picture), sundaes, shakes, or just regular, delicious soft serve.
