Those looking to indulge their sweet tooth while also enjoying curbside pickup have a new option with Suga Shack.

The drive-thru ice cream and sweets business opened earlier this month in a former Baskin-Robbins at 7695 White Lane.

Along with standard scoops and a kids sundae ($4.50 for one scoop with a choice of chocolate, caramel or marshmallow sauce topped with whipped cream and rainbow sprinkles), Suga Shack offers a variety of premium sundaes.

Options include the Perry special ($11.99), three scoops wedged between a sliced banana topped high with whipped cream and walnuts; cookie crumble ($8.99), two scoops of cookie dough ice cream between two chocolate chip cookies topped with hot fudge, whipped cream and nuts; peanut buttercup sundae ($8.99), two scoops of peanut buttercup topped with hot fudge, peanut butter sauce, Reese's topping and whipped cream; and banana remix ($8.99), two scoops of vanilla topped with hot fudge, sliced bananas, whipped cream and nuts.

The drive-thru also offers bubble waffles ($6.50 with choice of sauce and whipped cream; $9.99 for waffle with one scoop of ice cream, topping and sauce), milkshakes ($7.50-$8.50) and floats ($6.50-$7.50).

If you're in need of some caffeine, Suga Shack also sells hot espresso drinks as well as iced and blended cold brew. Pick traditional hot or white chocolate for the kids to sip on. The menu also includes chocolate chip cookies (99 cents), brownies with and without walnuts ($2.75-$3.75) and flavored cheesecakes ($5).

The grand opening kicks off at 11 a.m. Friday. For more on Suga Shack, visit the website at
