Camille's Hand Dipped Ice Cream Bars

1013 W. University Ave. #165, Georgetown, 512/819-9095
Mon.-Sat., noon-9pm; Sun., noon-8pm

Camille's Georgetown location is the first franchise outlet of the Austin-based company started by Rome and Melyn Gregorio, Bran­don Cunningham, and West Texan John Atkin­son. It sits in Wolf Ranch Town Center, on the southwest corner of University Avenue (Highway 29) and I-35. Walk in the door and your eye is immediately drawn to the Techni­color array of colorful ice cream bars of all varieties, in regular and mini sizes ($4.21/2.70). Everything is produced from quality ingredients, and they have handmade frozen yogurt bars, ice cream bars, fruit flavor bars, hand-done ice cream shakes ($3.78/3.34), and freshly squeezed lemonade ($2.26/2.05). Here's the deal: You pick a flavor, and then decide if you want it dipped in milk or dark chocolate. Then, you choose from the big assortment of add-on toppings to stick onto the chocolate glaze. They flash-freeze this stuff, so it stays frozen longer than you'd expect, and they have groovy little trays that fit underneath (you slide the stick through) to catch any drips. It's genius – and delicious. A few that we've tried? Cappuccino in milk chocolate with Heath bar; coconut in dark chocolate with pistachios; cherry pie (and also amaretto) in dark chocolate with almonds.
