Summers in North Carolina can sure get hot, and we at Moose Pharmacy believe a little ice cream may be just the remedy folks need for the weather!
While your doctor may never write you a prescription for some ice cream, pharmacies and ice cream have a long history together. Starting in the 1850’s some pharmacies began incorporating soda fountains into their businesses, where you could not only get sodas, but also soda floats, malted milk shakes, and ice cream sundaes.
By the 1920s, almost every pharmacy had a counter where you could get a frozen treat along with your medicine. This trend didn’t last forever, and many pharmacies have sadly shut down their ice cream and soda counters.
Even Moose Pharmacy’s own ice cream counters were closed for a time, but due to popular demand they are back open and serving ice cream once again!
If National Ice Cream day has put you in the mood for a scoop or two, be sure to check out the ice cream counter in Moose Mount Pleasant, which offers Vanilla, Chocolate, Cherry, Cookies and Cream, Butter Pecan, and more.
If you’re looking for even further variety, then swing by our Mount Holly location which offers other soda-shop creations like Orange-ade. We’re happy to help you beat the summer heat, no prescription needed!
