Sugar, Spice and Sweet Confections

September 03, 2018

There’s no shortage of shops around Branson to stop in when that sweet tooth strikes. Here are some of the best not-to-miss bakeries, creameries, and chocolatiers in town. The flavor offerings alone at Grandma Ruth’s make these cinnamon rolls stand out. Choose from cinnamon, caramel, butter toffee, chocolate hazelnut and more, and you may even catch a look at Ruth herself rolling out that dough. The Keeter Center puts the fresh cream in “ice cream” with their farm to table to frozen delights. From the agriculture students who milk the cows to the students who churn the cream, The Keeter Center has been turning out top of line ice creams—try espresso custard, bobcat crunch or browned butter pecan—for 110 years. For the chocoholics, head to The Best Chocolate in Town where handmade confections, like truffles and caramels, are the specialty. Be sure to stick around long enough to sample a slice of their whipped truffle pie!
