Talk of the Town:

Jenny Schnabel

I really think it's clever

I really like the name

Bringing ice cream and soup together

It's "Scoups" I will acclaim

16 flavors of ice cream

The kinds we love the most

Recommended Stories For You

I scream for ice cream

To that I will give a toast

"Scoups" I would say is a family affair

They all help each other out

Kimberly, Geoff and Michelle

Along with many young adults

Work the business from the inside and out

I must mention their "Scoupierior Cards"

They are given to the elementary schools

As each child does well in class

It's free ice cream and no rules

Now of course, there is soup

3 homestyle choices every day

Each served in a sourdough bread bowl

To warm and comfort you on your way

16 months in business

With family values at the core

Whether it's a scoup of their ice cream

Or soup that is scouped with a ladle

You'll be coming back for more
