We are Italian Ice converts now after Sunset Slush. Love the texture and how much more refreshing it seems than regular old ice cream. Our hands down favorites for our family of four are the chocolate mint and root beer flavors. This is a must...More

Sunset Slush is a must have everyday for us while on the beach and sometimes an evening treat as well! Good to see franchises expanding throughout NC so this treat is closer to home.

My family walked here last evening for dessert and were impressed with the variety of flavors. The kids loved it but they have no sugar-free offerings.

Thank You for giving us a try! We actually have a sugar free toasted almond ice cream. Sorry you were not told about it.
