A SCOOP of happiness!
Proprietor of Warlingham’s new dessert parlour The Scoop Company Maria Grey opened her doors one sunny August evening (yes, there was one where it didn’t rain!) to welcome a group of selected guests, including us!
Upon arrival, we were greeted with sweet treats and flutes of candyfloss bubbles. There was time for everybody to meet and mingle, so it was a great opportunity for the invited local businesses to get to know one another. Then we were given a challenge that I found particularly tough: to choose from The Scoop Company’s impressive ice cream menu. Almost every flavour you can think of is included, but I eventually decided on chocolate chip sprinkles over a vegan Mr Whippy cone, as well as a traditional strawberry sundae. Both were absolutely delicious!
As well as ice cream, gelatos and sorbets, The Scoop Company also offers a variety of baked goodies,including croissants, pain au chocolat, brownies and a variety of doughnuts (my favourite was a pistachio one, but it was definitely a close call with the Biscoff-crumbled ones!).
And if that was not all, each guest was given a branded goodie bag when they left (who doesn’t love a goodie bag?!), filled with novelties such as ice cream cone key rings, reusable straws and other tasty nibbles.
The level of care and attention to detail that Maria put into the evening was evident, but this simply reflects the dedication and effort she puts into making her business a focal point for the Warlingham community. Whether it’s a coffee stop on the way to the shops, an after-school outing for the children or you’re hiring the venue for a private event, Maria and her team will go out of their way to make you feel welcome.
