Living inside the Candy Land board game is such a dream; a sweet, delicious dream.

Waking up every day to a row of smooth, rich delicious scoops of ice cream, freshly prepared hot donuts filled with that flavorful ice cream, and surrounded by cotton candy that looks like clouds is a dream.

Now how do we make that wonderland a reality?

There is a place that offers all of these treats and more.  It is a challenge to find a unique sweet treat, one that is a change, a mix up from the usual dessert items found around town.  Hypnotic Emporium, located on South Main Street, offers a variety of creative ice cream flavors and off-the-wall treat combinations.

    Having a wide variety of crazy ice cream flavors to offering retro candies like Pez, chocolate rock candies, salt water taffy, pop rocks, and more, anyone can get what they desire here.  

      Their menu consists of: classic malts, shakes, hippy shakes which have fruity pebbles in them, root beer floats, banana splits, sundaes, cloud cones, ice cream, and cookie sandwiches.  

       Curious as to what a cloud cone was, I decided to order it.  A cloud cone, to my surprise, is a waffle cone with cotton candy inside and around it with a big scoop of ice cream on top.  I contemplated for a few minutes on which flavor ice cream to get because of how many unusual flavors they had; some I had never heard of before. I finally chose “french toast”. Some of their flavors were eggnog, lemon drop, banana cream pie, and so much more.

    Honestly, I did not know how french toast ice cream would taste with pink cotton candy surrounding it like a cloud, yet it tasted like a dream.
