Broom’s Bloom offers delicious chilly treats
With the summer months coming near, what better way to celebrate the first days of freedom than by enjoying a good, old-fashioned ice cream cone?
Broom’s Bloom Dairy seeks to provide frozen and creamy treats with their homemade and hand-dipped ice cream.
Located on a dairy farm at 1700 South Fountain Green Road, Broom’s Bloom resembles an old farm store and has plenty of seating. Large freezers are filled with prepackaged ice cream, artisanal cheeses, and various meats.
The outside offers seating, a scenic landscape, and possible trips to the farm itself.
Despite the various products Broom’s Bloom has to offer, the real crowd-pleaser is the homemade, hand-dipped ice cream. All of the ice cream is made on location and is incredibly fresh.
With flavors that range from the standard vanilla and chocolate to coconut almond and wild berry, it’s hard not to find a suitable choice for any ice cream lover’s palate. Broom’s Bloom is also known to get creative with their flavors too, as they have had flavors like “Purple Cow” (a richer vanilla flavor with purple dye) in the past.
Despite the rotating flavors, the flavor Dirt is one of the most popular. Comprised of chocolate ice cream, chocolate chips, and Oreo cookies, Dirt resembles but doesn’t taste like its namesake.
The rich and smooth chocolate ice cream offsets the crunchy bite from the Oreo cookies and the chocolate chips add another facet of chocolate in this indulgent dessert.
Along with the delicious treat came an incredibly reasonable price.
Broom’s Bloom lists sizes of a serving along with the number of scoops that accompany the size, starting with Very Small making its way up to Large.
The Very Small size of the Dirt ice cream served on a sugar cone totaled $2.50, a much better price compared to other ice cream competitors in the area like Cold Stone Creamery or Friendly’s, and certainly more generous of a portion.
With summer around the corner and frozen treats replacing typical snacks, be sure to stop in Broom’s Bloom Dairy to sample some of the finest ice cream in Bel Air and all of Harford County.
