SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT TO OUR WONDERFUL CUSTOMERS:

In an effort to continue to serve our customers and also slow the spread of COVID-19, Sweet P’s has made some changes to our RE-OPENING date and procedures. We will continue to follow the guidance from appropriate authorities and make changes as necessary. We believe in being calm, but we also know that we need to take this situation seriously.

As long as it remains possible, we will continue to offer ASHLEY’S ICE CREAM voted the BEST in Connecticut for more than 29 years in a row! We will also continue offering our specialty smoothies and the authentic and delicious ACAI BOWL.  Please understand that for everyone’s safety we will be processing all transactions with a limited menu through our front door window so customers will no need to enter the shop.  Lots of good stuff, just not quite as many options. Fresh food is perishable and as a small family business we are trying to mitigate our damages by keeping our fresh inventory a bit lower than normal. Trust us, as soon as this crisis passes, we will load up on all of your favorites again!

This pandemic is delivering painful financial blow to small business like ours. It is especially painful because the financial impact affects all of our seasonal employees too. Small business owners everywhere are doing our best to keep afloat and support each other.

If we might ask a favor, there are a few things that you can do right now that would help us immensely:

  1. Order ice cream in pints and quarts to share with everyone in your family or to keep a longer supply at home. Of course you can always order your single, double or tripple scoop of your favorite ice cream at any time.
  2. Place your smoothies, acai bowl, and “to go” ice cream orders over the phone to avoid waiting in line
  3. Support other small businesses in Downtown Essex and other neighborhoods. We are all in this together and we appreciate your support more than you know. Supporting small businesses now means they have a better chance of still being there when this storm passes.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We will continue to post any changes to our website and social media pages.
