Summer Treats: Sunni Sky's

Posted July 25, 2013

My first stop at Sunni Sky's was last summer after a trip to Noah's Landing, a small zoo in Coats.

The folks at Noah's Landing told me all about a great ice cream place that wasn't too far away. With my two ice cream loving kids in tow, how could I pass that up? So we traveled a few miles over to Angier and pulled into Sunni Sky's.

Wow, it was good! My group didn't know what to choose as we scanned the more than 100 homemade ice cream options.

I thought I'd found some sort of secret Triangle ice cream destination until I posted a picture of the menu on Go Ask Mom's Facebook page. Dozens liked the picture and shared their own love of the spot and favorite flavors.

So, I guess ... not so secret. Sunni Sky's

It's a bit of a drive to Sunni Sky's from my house, but I knew we'd need to make it back at least once this summer.

Go Ask Mom readers gave me a great reason when they let me know about Dr. Young's Pond Berry Farm, also in Angier and another featured spot in our Summer Treats series. We spent the morning picking berries and then headed to Sunni Sky's for a treat.

They encourage you to try a few samples before settling on your flavor. My younger daughter knew exactly what she wanted - the cotton candy flavor. My older daughter took her time before she settled on the raspberry sherbet. I went with the coconut fudge. Sunni Sky's

The menu includes some odd flavors, including Cold Sweat, made with peppers so hot that you have to sign a waiver to even try it. My colleagues over at Out & About took on that challenge last summer.

Me ... I'm going to stick to the sweet ice cream flavors. I'm thinking the peach cobbler variety has my name written all over it. Sunni Sky's

Find Sunni Sky's at 8617 Highway 55 in Angier. It's open daily in the spring, summer and fall. Cash and checks only.

    It still amazes me that people still don't know about Sunni Skys! They have been featured on Food TV and the Today show!

    Sunni Sky's has definitely spoiled me. When I am out of town and go to an ice cream shop, I expect homemade ice cream and tons of options. I have yet to find one that compares with Sunni Sky's on the types of flavors, quality, value, and customer service. The carrot cake is my absolute favorite.

    Mmmm, Sunni Sky's is the best!

    WIthout a doubt, Sunni Sky's (named for the owner's children: Sunni and Skyler) has the best homemade ice cream. My favorite flavors: apple pie, banana pudding, key lime pie, peach cobbler and cherry dump cake (tastes better than it sounds). And for $2.50, you get a single scoop that is the size of 2 scoops at many shops. The ice cream contains chunks of ingredients, such as pie crust and filling.

    I love Sunni Sky's so much! I hate that I live so far away from it though!
