Cool Down with Some Frozen Treats from these Sweet Shops in Hattiesburg

Don’t let the heat and humidity get you down. Our apartments in Hattiesburg, MS are just a few minutes away from delicious frozen treats! Whether you’re craving a milkshake, ice cream cone, or flavored snow, there are plenty of sweet shops in Hattiesburg to cool you down and satisfy your sweet tooth.

The Yard

You know the lyrics that go “My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard?” Well, one look at the milkshakes at The Yard Milkshake Bar will have everyone getting in line. In fact, they appeared on “Shark Tank” and struck a deal with Mark Cuban! You’ll want to study the menu before you go because you won’t believe how many choices they have. If you’re having a bad day, order the Cheer Bear: strawberry ice cream with rainbow marshmallow drizzle in a vanilla iced jar dipped in rainbow sprinkles. It’s topped with colorful whipped cream, a piece of cheesecake, a sour rainbow candy, and Teddy Grahams. 

If you’d rather eat your treat with a spoon than suck it with a straw, order a specialty bowl that comes in a cup. The Cereal Killer is gluten-free. Edible cookie dough is available in several flavors and also comes as cake pops. Make sure you check out the secret menu too.

Hub City Creamery

It’s hard to even compete with The Yard, but if you like Hershey’s ice cream, Hub City Creamery is the place for you. They also have gelato, shakes, malts, and floats. Choose from over 30 flavors, including Moose Tracks with no sugar added. For an extra sweet treat, order a cannoli, cinnamon roll, or churro. Hub City Creamery may not be fancy, but it also won’t break the bank. 

Nannie Mac’s 

Getting snow on the ground in Mississippi is a rarity, but having snow that you can eat is a definite at Nannie Mac’s. They serve New Orleans-style snowballs which means they are light and fluffy. Choose from over 50 flavors like Cotton Candy, Tutti Frutti, and Fuzzy Navel. You can also pay extra to have your snowball stuffed with a scoop of ice cream. The menu also has milkshakes, hot dogs, nachos, and more.
