Sprinkles Ice Cream, 8413 Preston Center Plaza, 214.363.4050; sprinkles.com
Five years ago, a sugar rush reached citywide proportions thanks to the arrival of Sprinkles Cupcakes. Now, the enemy of diets everywhere has struck again with the opening of Sprinkles Ice Cream, a modern take on the old-fashioned scoop shop. Nestled alongside the bakery and its cupcake-dispensing ATM, the Dallas location was a no-brainer for L.A. owner Candace Nelson. “We’ve shipped more house-made pints to Texas than any other state,” she says. Foodies can indulge in flavors such as salty caramel, Cap’n Crunch or butter pecan with caramelized pecan dragées, along with originals vanilla bean and strawberry. Options such as red velvet waffle cones, crumbled cupcake toppings or the Sprinkles sandwich (a heaping scoop of your favorite ice cream flavor pressed between two fluffy cupcake tops) mean your healthy intentions can begin, well, another day.
