How Sweets It Is!

Great News!  A new business called Sweets! is coming to Downtown Auburn Hills.  Owner Kathy Genautis plans to open by mid-June.

Sweets!, an ice cream and café – serving delicious baked goods too – will be a family owned and operated business.  They have been busy learning the “ins and outs” of running a creamery and getting set up in their newly purchased building at 3395 Auburn Road, Suite C, which is located at the corner of Auburn and Squirrel Roads (the former Nana’s).

I spoke with Kathy and she stated that Sweets! will be focused on selling products that are known for their quality, while keeping the prices affordable.  It will be the first and only store in Michigan to sell Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream.

The delicious ice cream is specially made in Madison, Wisconsin.   Flavors like Zanzibar Chocolate (Kathy’s favorite), Heaps of Love, Zoreo, Halley’s Comet, Kitty Kitty Bang Bang, Yippee Skippee, Caramel ChocoLatte, and Iced Latte-Da are just a few that will be offered.

Sweets! will also serve Great Lakes Coffee, having their own house blend.  They will also rotate other coffees as the seasons change and the coffee bean “world crop locations” change.  Ghirardelli Syrups will be used with both ice cream and their coffee menu items. Three caffeinated ice creams, which have the same amount of caffeine as an energy bar, will also be part of the menu.

For pet lovers, Sweets! will offer doggie treats and cones too.  So take a walk with “man’s best friend” to this fun place and have a treat for you and your companion.

I want to try Yippee Skippee ice cream first.  What flavor will you choose?  After our ice cream we can say, “How Sweets it was … Yum!” 

See you soon at Sweets!
