There’s nothing quite as refreshing during a hot, sunny day like a couple scoops of your favorite ice cream flavor. Luckily, when you vacation on the Outer Banks, there are plenty of places to buy everyone’s favorite sweet treat.
To make sure you can spend your time enjoying your dessert instead of searching for a restaurant, we’ve compiled a handy list of different Kill Devil Hills ice cream shops and other frozen treats. Enjoy!
From classics like banana splits and chocolate on a waffle cone to more adventurous items like salted caramel and brownie bombshell sundaes, Scoops has any flavor an ice cream lover could want. Get it in a cup, cake cone, or waffle cone, make it a sundae with your favorite topping, or order a milkshake or malted shake. Smoothies, coffee drinks, and specialty sundaes are also available. This brightly decorated shop will certainly be a favorite among kids!

It doesn’t get fresher than the frozen custard you get from Kill Devil’s Frozen Custard & Beach Fries. Although similar in appearance to ice cream, custard must contain at least 10% milkfat and 1.4% egg yolk. The other difference comes from how much air is beaten into the mixture with custard being creamy and dense. At Kill Devil’s, they churn out fresh custard hourly to ensure every cup or cone has the optimal flavor! Choose from vanilla, chocolate, or a rotating daily special flavor. You can also order a shake, float, sundae, or take a pint home to your vacation rental! (Burgers, hot dogs, and handcut fries are also available!)
