OBX Sweet Treats
My husband and I have had our own business for nearly a decade now, so I'm pretty partial to mom and pop shops. I like the idea of supporting a local family, and keeping the money we spend here rather than in Virginia at a big box store or chain restaurant. Another thing I'm pretty partial to... desserts. So when two cool new locally owned sweet shops opened up this spring, I knew I'd become a customer. The first to open was Zen Pops, a popsicle shop located in the Seagate North Shopping Center in Kill Devil Hills. Crystal, the owner, makes everything from all-natural ingredients. The popsicles are fantastic, and the homemade ice cream is delish! In Nags Head on the Beach Road, the recently opened Surfin' Spoon serves frozen yogurt in a hip, beachy hangout. Try the watermelon sorbet. Yum! Both are great places to cool off after a hot day at the beach... and you can feel good about supporting our local economy, too!
