It seems like only yesterday that The Charmery opened its doors on the corner of the Avenue and Chestnut in Hampden. Back then, it was late summer, and everyone within a mile radius was practically banging down the doors, wondering when the mom and pop ice cream store would finally open and give us some sweet respite from the summer heat. This winter has sure been no picnic anywhere in the country– but here as we’re maybe seeing a few glimpses of spring, we figure let’s keep the hot beverages flowing for those last sweet moments.
The dead of winter (or the messy, wet beginnings of spring) don’t usually conjure up thoughts like, “I sure could use a trip to the ice cream parlor.” But then again, not every ice cream parlor boasts thick, delicious hot chocolate overflowing with homemade marshmallows. It makes sense that these folks would know how to make a good hot chocolate—after all, when properly done, it’s just as creamy, flavorful, and sweet as ice cream—just a whole lot hotter. Of course, you can still come in for a cone or a sundae or a float, if you’re bold enough. But we say take the time to appreciate the season’s specialty. There will be plenty of time for eating ice cream later in the year.
The Charmery is located at 801 W 36th St in Baltimore. For more information, visit www.thecharmery.com.
