Pokey O's Review

So thanks to Pokey O's and Susie O, I have tried 12 new flavors and I'll be posting my reviews over the next few days/weeks. But first I want to review Pokey O's for those who have never had the privilege of going.

The minute you walk in to Pokey O's you can't help but feel like a little kid again. You're greeted by an ice cream counter boasting 15 flavors of various Blue Bell treats, bakery fresh gourmet cookies, and a freezer case full of decadent ice cream cakes! Just a couple of blocks from SMU, this gem is strategically placed next to a Barnes & Noble and a Starbucks...the perfect place for a mom to take the kids after a weekend soccer game or a weary college kid to unwind between finals.

Even though I went to Pokey O's to taste the ice cream, the real star was the cookies! Big, moist, cookies chock full of crunchy nuts, rich chocolate chunks and much more. They have all of the classics like chocolate chip, white chocolate macadamia and snickerdoodle; as well as quite a few new favorites like white chocolate cranberry, maple pecan, and fudge nut brownie. After my tast-athon I was sent home with a big bag of "brokey Pokey" (which is a variety bag of broken cookies) and let's just say it didn't make it home! Kudos to the Pokey O family for coming up such a creative way to use the broken cookies that can't be used for ice cream sandwiches.

Anyways, if you find yourself in Dallas and you're searching for a delicious sweet treat, stop by Pokey O's...you won't regret it.

P.s. If you get there and you're a little overwhelmed by all of the amazing options just ask for a "Susie O" which is an ice cream sandwich made with 2 fudge nut brownie cookies and a scoop of mint chocolate chip ice cream!
