Summer and ice cream go together.  And this should be your prompt to check-out the newest ice cream store in our area, Queen Bee Ice Cream.

Located in Marsh Manor, Queen Bee Ice Cream shares space with Angel Heart Cakes. Since opening in late February, owner DeAndra Axlund has been winning converts from the loyal fans, local businesses, and especially the near-by neighborhoods.  In fact, Suburban Park residents have instituted a regular Saturday night walk and social. The lovely new patio just in front adds to the experience.

Starting Queen Bee has been DeAndra and her husband’s dream for over nine years. But only in 2010 did everything come together:  a good location, right time in her life, and of course, the ice cream!

Queen Bee sells 37 flavors of Marianne’s Ice Cream – the same Marianne’s that’s been an institution since 1958 on Ocean Avenue in Santa Cruz. And for the first time,  Marianne’s  has developed a unique flavor for one of its partners. The Queen Bee flavor is a luscious combination of See’s molasses chips, dark chocolate, and honey in a vanilla base.  You need to try it. Marianne’s signature flavor, 10-20, is always available.

DeAndra’s favorite flavor is Macapuno, a very tasty coconut ice cream.  (Of the flavors I sampled, it was mine, too!)

DeAndra also makes homemade cookies and customized ice cream sandwiches, tantalizing layered milkshakes, yummy cupcakes frosted with ice cream, and ice cream filled cupcakes.  Queen Bee always has a selection of sorbets, and at least one or two ice cream flavors with No Added Sugar (NAS).
