It’s official — the best ice cream that Arkansas has to offer is in Little Rock. Loblolly Creamery has been featured in Food Network Magazine, which listed its Arkansas Mud flavor as the best scoop in the state.


The Food Network Magazine feature, titled “Here’s the Scoop,” is billed as an ice cream tour of America, identifying the “most amazing flavor in every state.” The spread opens up with Alabama’s Big Spoon Creamery, Wild Scoops in Alaska, Sweet Republic in Arizona, and then none other than Arkaknsas’ Loblolly — the sweetest place in SoMa.


“We are SO humbled and excited to be featured in the newest [Food Network Magazine],” Loblolly posted on social media. “They declared Arkansas Mud as the best scoop in the state and we couldn’t be more thrilled! Come try a scoop and see for yourself!”


This seems as good an excuse as any to make it a double-scoop-in-a-waffle-cone kind of weekend.
