Widow's Walk Ice Creamery
When a business is in the Southern Indiana area for 20 years or more, it becomes an icon – a staple in the community, if you will. One of the crowd favorites, even after all these years, is Widow’s Walk Ice Creamery on the river in Clarksville. A few years ago, the locally famous ice cream shop went through a change of ownership and is now owned by Jill Dodson. Although the owner is different, the overall atmosphere and service hasn’t changed – it’s almost as if there were never a change at all within the business. Dodson was able to bring a sigh of relief to the community by purchasing the business and keeping the tradition alive.
“We are still rolling through 10,000+ customers a month during the summer, providing them with the same great ice cream and service that’s been around for 20 years,” Dodson said.
All of the delicious ice cream at Widow’s Walk is handmade, hand-dipped, premium flavors. While they have several menu items that have made them famous, here are a few that are sure to be your favorite ways to cool off this summer.
The Proud Mary Peanut Butter Cup Sundae is started with a base of two warm, melt-in-your-mouth brownies with some Peanut Butter Cup ice cream and topped off with hot fudge, whipped cream, nuts and a cherry. The Rudy's Rockin' Red Punch is made up of Orange Sherbet blended with Big Red to make a cool refreshing drink. An all-time favorite at Widow’s Walk is the Create Your Own Banana Split. You can choose your three flavors of ice cream and your three toppings and then it is all topped off with whipped cream, nuts and a cherry – it’s to die for! The Widow’s Walk Ice Creamery even offers kid size cones for the little ones in your group!
Although they don’t offer any specific specials, they will occasionally offer a Groupon - so be sure to keep your eyes open! Their neighboring coffee shop, where you can find delicious fudge, souvenirs and chocolate, will be offering an array of entertainment this summer that can be enjoyed in the front courtyard of Widow’s Walk. Summer entertainment will be featured on Saturday evenings in June, July and August.
While the Ice Creamery doesn’t offer entertainment just yet, according to Dodson, they have been known to surprise guests standing in line with an impromptu singing/dancing opportunity!
This summer, Widow’s Walk will be introducing several new flavors by featuring a “Flavor of the Week.” The ones that prove to be crowd favorites will continue to be offered on a rotating basis. Some of these will include: Banana Cream Pie, Lemon Cheesecake and Raspberry Fudge Cordial.
