If your idea of a nice treat is an ice treat, you’re in luck this spring. Local ice cream shops are making moves to expand, remodel, and reopen to give everyone a taste of the sweet life — particularly in Broad Ripple. Here are some of the most recent developments:

Canal Creamery just opened last weekend. A sister shop to Canal Bistro, the preciously pink store is serving up scoops of traditional flavors like moose tracks, cookie dough, and butter pecan, as well as shakes, floats, and sundaes. We’re stoked to try the baklava sundae, and its website hints that boozy shakes may be added to the menu soon.

Meanwhile, just down the street, Brics (short for Broad Ripple Ice Cream Station) is taking a brief hiatus from Monday, March 11 to Friday, March 15. It plans to complete renovations during that time to maintain the small shop’s charm.

If popsicles are your thing, then you’re probably already familiar with Nicey Treat. Its Nicey Pop Shop in Broad Ripple will be moving across the street from Flatwater Restaurant. We’ll let you know when we hear of a reopening date — in the meantime, the shop is also hiring.
