Conroe offers new frozen dessert, candy store

Conroe+offers+new+frozen+dessert%2C+candy+store
The store offers a wide variety of candy in self-serve candy.

Exhausted after a day full of exams? Craving a sweet frozen reward after swimming? Suppress your cravings with award-winning Cherry Amaretto ice cream from Yeti Eddy, a new small-owned business in Conroe. Yeti Eddy is the newest addition to the frozen dessert scenery in Conroe, located in the Teas Crossing center, only two exits from school.

 The warmer weather invites a need for frozen desserts and candy. This is perfect as there is a new spot in Conroe. This week I visited Yeti Eddy in the hopes of seeing what the shop would be like and report back, and I found that this store offers great options, amazing prices, and is very clean. 

The store also offers prepackaged foreign candy and nostalgic lollipops.

As I walked into Yeti Eddy, a very sweet staff member immediately greeted me. The store offers more than 50 different candy options, which I think is great as everyone can find something they like. The candy resembles popular options but with a twist. For example, an option was sour-sweet gummy worms and chili-covered candy. There were also foreign candy options, like Lucas and Crayon candy from Mexico. Bags for candy are placed next to the candy and you choose as much candy as you want, and there is a scale to weigh the bag. ¼ lb was $3.25 and 1 lb was $13.00. I think these prices were reasonable, especially as the candy was a generous amount for ¼ lb. Overall, I think the candy offered a wide variety of flavors, ranging from extremely sweet to slightly sweet candy

The ice cream is what truly amazed me; it was soft and creamy, not overpowering in sweetness, which is something I liked.  There are different flavors with a waffle cone option or cute plastic containers that are reusable. The ice cream flavors offer many options like Butter Pecan, Cherry Amaretto, and more. Personally, the Cherry Amaretto ice cream was my favorite; the flavor included a subtle cherry, nutty, and chocolate flavor. I only paid $2.80 for my waffle cone with one scoop of Michigan Pothole ice cream. This is a great price and it allows everyone to enjoy a dessert, even on a budget, and, if you crave more, pints of ice cream are available to take home.

The restrooms are adorably decorated in accord with a pink yeti theme.

The location and store were very clean and maintained, and it was decorated based on the store’s mascot, Yeti Eddy. The store had a corner to buy merchandise, which included t-shirts, hoodies, and hats. Along the side wall, there were interactive toys right next to some of the tables, which can be helpful to people with young kids or siblings. I was surprised to see the restrooms, as they were decorated with the mascot all over the walls cutely and whimsically. The girl’s restroom had a yeti with a pink bow and the boy’s restroom had a yeti with red sneakers and a red hat, and they were very clean and put together. The consistency with the Yeti Eddy theme adds to the experience of visiting, especially for younger children.

With its atmosphere, sweet options, and budget-friendly prices, Yeti Eddy deserves the attention of the people in Montgomery County. The store will definitely be a hit, especially with teens and families. Although it seems targeted at families or younger audiences, it is great for all people to go and enjoy a treat. On March 30th, there will be a grand opening ceremony and ribbon cutting ceremony with deals, giveaways, raffles, and activities for kids like face painting and balloon artistry. Mark your calendars.
