A Royal Ice Cream and Candy Shoppe

16 Aug

Velvet Ice Cream

While vacationing in Harbor Springs Michigan, I tasted the best ice cream ever at Velvet. Owners Trish and Erik Berakovich named the store Velvet to evoke a royal ambiance and experience.

Just like the name, Velvet’s ice cream is regal and rich.  My favorite flavor (there are 28) is the sea salt chocolate carmel. Let’s not forget about the candy — sumptuous homemade carmel corn and fudge.  To complement the ice cream, Sanders products are available.

Purple reigns as the color of choice. The stylish boxes match the wallpaper.

Velvet is not to be missed on Main St. in Harbor Springs. The owners are thinking of opening a store in metro-Detroit. Where do you think the sweetest spot for Velvet 2 would be?

Detroiters Love Coney Island Hot Dogs

9 Jan

Faygo pop and Sanders hot fudge are pure Detroit, but the hot dogs in Motown sure are special.  Pile on the chili, mustard and onions and you have a Detroit Coney Island hot dog. Now in Canton, American Coney Island will open a new restaurant with a drive-thru — perfect for a quick fix. On January 12th at 44532 Michigan Avenue in Canton, customers can drive up for a Coney. As part of the opening celebration, the first 50 customers will receive a FREE hot dog, beginning at 9 a.m. Other specials  will continue throughout the day.


American Coney Island is a third-generation Motown family business, founded by Gust Keros in 1917. His son Charles and Charles’ daughter, Grace, are in the business.  American Coney Island won the best Coney Dog in Detroit on “Food Feuds” on the Food Network and Travel Channel’s “Food Wars.”
