Seven cold treats on hot summer days in Norman
Earlier this week on our Facebook page (you follow it, right?), we asked for favorite cold treats on hot days in Norman. No surprises as our followers named many of our same favorite treats!
With perhaps the hottest part of the summer coming up in the next seven or so days, here are seven cold treats to try, one for each day of the week.
Eskimo Sno. Whether lining up at the original parking lot location on West Lindsey Street (#LoveLindsey) or one of the other locations (867 12th Ave. NE or 1228 N. Interstate Dr.), this is certainly a spectacular frozen treat. Popular flavors include the Tiger Blood, Wedding Cake, Ninja and Orchid Cream.
Custard Factory. Another long-standing Norman tradition celebrating its Sweet Sixteen this summer, make it a point to treat yourself July 16 for National Ice Cream Day. With live music, banana split eating contests and more, this is the cool place to be Sunday.
Apple Tree Chocolates. Did you know the Campus Corner favorite serves milk shakes? Well, now you do so get over there and try one.
405 Brewing Co. Taproom. For those who are 21 and over, a cold brew at 405 Brewing Company can really hit the spot. The taproom is open Thursdays from 4-8 p.m. and Sundays noon-5 p.m.
Classic 50s Drive-In. Classic 50s is a Norman staple and favorite. With “happy hours” featuring half-price drinks, this can be a refreshing treat on a hot day as well as economical, too. Try a Sprittle, an Eskimo Frosty or a Crimson and Cream slush along with an order of PickleOs.
The Baked Bear. Newer to Norman, The Baked Bear sits on Campus Corner and offers more than a dozen original-recipe cookies and ice cream flavors. Pro tip: Request your ice cream sandwich to be warmed so that it is less messy to eat.
The Mont. Sipping a frozen drink on The Mont’s famed patio with misters on the perimeter is as Norman as Norman gets. For those 21 and over, a Swirl is a rite of passage but many of the frozen concoctions may be prepared without alcohol, too.
