As with other super-trendy ice cream shops that have opened across the country in the past couple of years, Aqua S is known for its vividly colored soft-serve ice cream, made in flavors like pink lemonade, rose milk tea, strawberry cheesecake, and the chain’s famed “sea salt” flavor. The dramatic ice cream creations are swirled into charcoal-black ice cream cones, garnished with everything from toasted marshmallows and caramel popcorn to Pop Rocks, and served shrouded in a halo of fluffy “fairy floss,” or cotton candy.

Stay tuned for more details on when Aqua S will make its Dallas debut.
