Oh Sweet Charlie's: Rolled Up Ice Cream Kings

A neat Center City ice cream joint.
Autumn, my favorite season, is here.
Though summer is over. Chill has come. Rainy days have arrived.
That doesn't mean that I don't miss ways of beating the heat. 
A few weeks ago, I shared Sweet Charlie's Ice Cream Roll Live in action via the AfroVeganChick channel (subscribe to a digital world of vegan food, art, fashion, hair, and more). This creative concept is interesting-- rolling up ice cream and putting toppings on these rounded tubes.
Almost everyone filmed the sideshow spectacle of their creations being made. As the male workers, chopped, scraped, and rolled ice cream to cheesy pop tunes, I waited for mine to be clean. Since there's no separate turntable (it is a small place), for a vegan, it is recommended that they wash away traces of dairy base.
They use scrumptious Nada Moo-- a popular Texas family-owned vegan ice cream brand.
I picked vanilla flavor with blueberries mixed in and strawberries and crushed almonds on top.
And it tasted as special as it looked-- a pale lavender shade, strawberry slices like bright red flower petals.

Berry sweet concoction.
Isn't it beautiful? The fruity flavors divinely work together in a cool innovative take on traditional take out ice cream. Rolled up ice cream is a satisfying thing!


  1. I've never heard of rolled ice cream, but it looks fun. I have to try that Nada Moo, I was wondering if it was good. I just subscribed to your YouTube channel!!!

    1. I found out on an afternoon television special on ice cream brands n Philadelphia. Their segment stood out. Nada Moo is delicious-- expensive though. I only buy it on sale. Thank you so much for watching the video and subscribing! Your support is super duper appreciated. *cyber hugs* <3
