Screwballs Frozen Delights

1400 Towson St., (410) 241-3217, Locust Point

More at

This new Locust Point spot features hand-dipped ice cream, plus soft-serve, milkshakes, malts, root beer floats, Coke floats, snowballs, sundaes, banana splits, flavors galore, toppings aplenty, and, just in case you need them, dog treats. There’s also a massive hand-written chalkboard menu, a fun 1950s ice cream parlor feel, and the option of pleasant conversation with the retired couple that owns the place. The store always stocks 13 flavors of the premium stuff—a hormone-free brand called Moorenko, manufactured in Silver Spring—and it rotates the flavors as they come in. You can get them in a cup ($3.65 for a small) or a cone, for here or to go. Think it’s the wrong season for ice cream? You thought wrong. Check out the pumpkin ice cream, which smells almost better than it tastes, and other seasonal flavors: rice pudding, blackberry, and apple pie. The hours are winding down—4-9 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays, 1-9 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays—until the “grand closing” celebration the second Saturday of November; it’ll reopen sometime in March. Call anytime between now and closing, and you can special order any flavor to keep at home in the off-season.
