Wonders Ice Cream Company, a Minnesota creamery known for its over-the-top desserts, will soon open its first Dallas location.
The small Midwestern chain announced that it would expand to Dallas in an Instagram post earlier this week, and sales tax permit applications filed with the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts indicate that it will open inside a strip mall at 5150 Lemmon Avenue. Since opening in the Twin Cities of Minnesota in 2017, Wonders Ice Cream has already expanded to five locations in Minnesota. The Texas outpost marks the growing chain’s first expansion outside of its home state.
The shop is yet another destination for rolled ice cream, a Thai dessert that involves spreading ice cream base thinly onto a super-chilled plate (or “anti-griddle”) and scraping it into thin rolls, joining spots like Chills 360 and 7 Degrees Ice Cream Rolls. Non-rolled ice cream — Wonders Ice Cream calls it “scraped ice cream — is an option, as are a variety of creative serving vessels like waffle cone taco shells, sweet hot-dog-style buns and traditional cones dyed in bright colors.
For ice cream enthusiasts, Wonders offers 20 different types of rolled ice cream, ranging from strawberry cheesecake to matcha berry and mangonada, all of which can be customized with a variety of toppings like Pocky sticks, fruit, crushed cookies, and candy. For those who eschew dairy, Italian ice and coconut-based ice cream options are on offer, along with milk teas and shakes made with any of the ice cream flavors.
No word yet on when Wonders Ice Cream will make its Dallas debut, but its sales tax permit is active as of November 1. Eater has reached out for more details on the opening timeline — stay tuned.
