Known for its inventive flavors, like bacon and bourbon, Lumpy's Ice Cream is a favorite at the North Carolina State Fair. Now, you can have it (almost) anytime!

Lumpy's is holding an official grand opening for its first retail store at 306 E. Wait Ave. in Wake Forest on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. 

There will be giveaways (including Koka Booth Amphitheater tickets) and coupons. The N.C. Department of Agriculture will be bringing their giant Got to Be NC grocery cart and their educational RV. 

Some of the Carolina Railhawks and their mascot will also be on hand. 

Three special flavors will be offered on Saturday – Benni's Bacon and Bourbon (which has previously only been available at the fair), Angel's Apple Pie and Montezuma's Mexican Chocolate (which is described as a dark and spicy blend). 

If you aren't up for the more adventurous flavors, they will always offer the staples – vanilla, chocolate, strawberry and butter pecan in the store.

Lumpy's is open 11 a.m. - 9 p.m. Monday - Thursday, 11 a.m. - 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 1 p.m. - 7 p.m. on Sundays.
