- Dips & Sips is dishing up ice cream.
A throwback scoop shop has come to Mission. Dips & Sips
opened at 5735 Johnson Drive, in Mission, two weeks ago with a cooler full of Blue Bell ice cream, soft serve that can be swirled with a flavor burst, and ice-cream and cookie sandwiches made by hand.
The most old-school thing about Dips & Sips could be the prices. A mini cup or cone (about a scoop and a half) is $1.50, a small is $2, and a mega is $2.50. Sundaes are just $2, and a mini explosion (a blended treat like a Dairy Queen Blizzard) is $3.
- Dips & Sips has flavor bursts, like butterscotch.
Just two doors down from LaMar's Donuts (and directly across the street from Werner's), Dips & Sips - the space has previously held a dance studio, consulting business and graphic-design shop - stocks 16 flavors of ice cream and 11 flavors of soft serve. The ice cream is now the base for a variety of frozen treats, from banana splits to floats. Sundaes are just $2, and a mini explosion (a blended treat like a Dairy Queen Blizzard) is $3.
The soft serve is available plain or with a ribbon of flavor burst (eight flavors from blueberry to butterscotch) are available. In addition to ice cream, Dips & Sips sells cake pops, pies and ice-cream cakes.
Dips & Sips is open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and from 2 to 8 p.m. Sunday. The phone number is 913-677-DIPS (3477). The ice-cream shop is holding a grand opening Saturday, April 14, and Sunday, April 15. It'll be offering a promotion of buy one dip, get one dip free.
