Food trucks have been popping up in the MOV these past few years and I’m happy to report the newest addition can be found in St. Marys, W.Va. Scoops opened its doors this past June and has been churning out sweet confections including cookies, ice cream and coffee. With enticing flavors that vary based on seasonal availability (black raspberry, anyone?), your palate will never be disappointed.
What started as an idea turned into reality this past spring for Emily Powell and her sister. The two had talked of opening an ice cream/food truck for almost two years. Destiny dealt its hand when the owner of The Boxcar restaurant in St. Marys announced his fully equipped food trailer was for sale. The duo jumped at the chance to purchase the trailer and the Scoops food truck was born.Since its introduction to the MOV, Emily said the community response to Scoops has been nothing short of extraordinary. “When my sister and I opened Scoops this summer, we just thought it would be a nice little summer job – we had no idea we’d be as blessed as we have been!”
Not sure what to purchase at Scoops? Emily can help you out. “Currently, we offer hand-dipped ice cream from a locally owned creamery in Virginia, our homemade cookies from scratch and specialty coffee drinks! You can purchase these items individually, or we have several combination options.” Examples include their ice cream/cookie sandwiches, trio cup (a coffee float with your choice of cookie/ice cream) and loaded milkshakes (a coffee milkshake with a cookie crumble on top.) And if you’re planning on bringing your four-legged friends along, Scoops offers homemade dog treats for them as well!
