UMMM Ice Cream Parlor – Local Review
UMMM is damn right! This hidden gem was the last place I needed in my life with 3 little kids. Since we’ve found out about this place, my girls ask for UMMM Ice Cream every day of the week. We are still newbies to the area and try our best to support local businesses. UMMM Ice Cream Parlor prides itself on providing quality homemade ice cream and waffle cones since 1982. They’ve been voted Burlington County’s Best Ice Cream Shop and Best of the Best by South Jersey’s Magazine (resource: www.ummmicp.com) – just to mention a few. While reading reviews on Yelp, I decided to take my girls on a mommy + me date to see if UMMM Ice Cream parlor can live up to its hype…
UMMM is located in the Historic section of Burlington City and accommodates both outside and inside seating. It’s a small sized vintage-styled parlor – which I actually loved. I am usually attracted to ‘modern styled’ shops, but this place was actually cute. When we entered the parlor, we were immediately greeted by a smiling staff who offered us menus. The smell was amazing as a young gentleman prepared homemade waffles at the stand. Based on reviews, it does seem to attract large crowds depending on when you go, but on this particular day, there were only a handful of people in the parlor. This was great for a mother with 4 little girls (oh, I forgot to mention we also had my niece with us). To top the friendly service received when we entered, we received our entire order within 10 minutes. Listen…I’ll stop here – there’s no need of me telling you about the ice cream. Just look for yourself.
Did UMMM live up to its hype? Hell yeah!
Ice cream THIS good should be a crime! I guess this will be the summer that I will continue to satisfy my sugar cravings (FYI – I have no interest in sugar-free, no mam’) at UMMM Ice Cream Parlor as a frequent fan. UMMM also provides a service called “Bringing The Fun To You!” where they will cater to groups as small as ten to as large as you need. With 3 girls celebrating their birthdays in the summer months, I plan to try this service and will keep you updated if I do.
I wrote this review to say this…support a local business and try your local ice cream parlor. If you are in the Burlington, NJ area, support THIS ice cream parlor. You will not be disappointed!
