Eight tasty cold treats to beat the heat in Arlington

Arlington’s summer days have always consisted of a sweltering combination of high humidity and temperatures. This month has been no exception.

Yet summer is also the season to venture out, try new things, and explore new places.

In the interest of remaining active while cooling down, here are eight tasty, cold goodies in Arlington you can try before summer ends.

1. Nutella ice cream from Nicecream

Nicecream in Clarendon (2831 Clarendon Blvd) uses the process of freezing ice cream with liquid nitrogen. Its selection of ice cream flavors rotates weekly and has flavors spanning from white chocolate peanut butter to grapefruit creamsicle. However, Nutella is a must-try.

2. Nutella açaí bowl from South Block

Similarly, did you know you can get some of that addictive chocolate hazelnut spread in your South Block açaí bowl? We did, so we figured you would want to try that to cool off. Topping off South Block’s Nutella açaí bowl are mixed granola, banana, strawberry, coconut and Nutella.

3. Peanut butter icebox pie from Bakeshop

Bakeshop in Clarendon (1025 N. Fillmore Street) is no ordinary bakery. Offering a slew of flavors of cupcakes, bread, cakes, cookies, pies and macarons, Bakeshop also offers vegan and gluten-free options. Its Peanut Butter Icebox Pie is the perfect pick-me-up for peanut butter lovers.

4. Ice cream cookiewich from Bakeshop

One of the most popular summer treats at Bakeshop that is a must-try is its ice cream Cookiewich. This Cookiewich consists of two mouth-watering chocolate chunk cookies enveloping vanilla ice cream. Bakeshop’s Cookiewich is, in the opinion of this reviewer, beyond any ice cream sandwich you have ever tried.

5. Coffee Oreo + Chocolate Heaven ice cream from Mimi’s Handmade Ice Cream

Mimi’s Handmade Ice Cream in Pentagon City (1201 S. Joyce Street) is full of ice creams, sorbets, and sherbets made with locally sourced produce. Offering over 44 flavors, chocolate lovers will “melt” over the Coffee Oreo and Chocolate Heaven.

6. Low-fat chocolate frozen yogurt topped with maraschino cherries + M&M’s from SweetFrog

Frozen yogurt lovers can stop by SweetFrog (2931 S. Glebe Road) for extensive frozen yogurt and toppings options. Offering fresh fruit, candy, nuts and cereals, and sauces, my go-to toppings are maraschino cherries and M&Ms.

7. Cannolis from The Italian Store

The Italian Store (5837 Washington Blvd, 3123 Lee Hwy) is a must-try place at the Westover shops. Not only does each location provide pizza and subs, but they also offer two sizes of cannolis: small and large. Cannolis are the perfect cool treat to transport your taste buds to the Mediterranean island of Sicily.

8. Frozen lemonade from Auntie Anne’s

Okay, it’s a chain, but don’t sleep on the refreshment power of the icy beverages found at this pretzel purveyor. With a location in the Fashion Centre at Pentagon City  (1100 S. Hayes Street), Auntie Anne’s offers the perfect drinks needed for cooling off. Auntie Anne’s has a variety of lemonade drinks ranging from frozen lemonade to lemonade mixers, as well as iced teas. My favorite is the original frozen lemonade.

First, using safe cleaning products ensures toxic chemicals won’t leak into waterways or harm wildlife if disposed of improperly.

Second, it’s better for you and your family. Fragrant chemicals in surface cleaners can expose you to a similar amount of pollutant particles as a busy city road, New Scientist reported.
