Craving more ice cream? After sourcing 10 local ice cream places for Rowan Blog, contributor Camryn Hadley, a senior double major in Public Relations and Advertising, has discovered a new spot right in Glassboro.
It’s no secret that I have a large sweet tooth. When I heard a new ice cream shop opened behind my residence hall, I had to try it out!
I got the chance to meet with Lucy’s Creamery owner, Nikki, and got the inside “scoop” on Rowan’s newest local business.
Lucy’s recently opened amid the pandemic summer in July and is located on 211 West High St. The location is perfect for a walk around campus and ending on the Glassboro Town Square with some treats.
The ice cream shop was originally founded by Nikki’s dad in Sewell, NJ in 2002. Nikki met her husband and now co-owner while working there when they were 16. The two recently bought the shop and made the move to Rowan to appeal to college students and offer indoor ice cream dining year-round.
This family-owned business has some insane sundaes! But the most popular? The Peanut Butter Lover’s and Brownie Sundaes take the cake. If you ask Nikki, her favorite would be a hand-dipped Strawberry Cheesecake with soft serve as a close second.
As for my favorite? I’d have to go with the Cereal Killer Sundae with Fruity Pebbles and Rice Crispy Treats!
Of course, Lucy’s has some awesome promotions for Rowan students. When picking up your sweet treat, make sure to show your Rowan ID for 10% off your order. And don’t worry, using Rowan Bucks as a form of payment will be coming soon!
