Wild, can’t miss desserts around Columbia, SC

Recently, we asked Soda Citizens to share their favorite wild, can’t-miss desserts around town.

@twistcolasc commented, “Do you have instructions on WHERE to START?!!?! That is HUUUUUUGE!!❤️❤️” Though they were talking about the huge milkshake from LICK Ice Cream, (which was delicious by the way), we also felt an overwhelming “where do we start” feeling when trying to tackle covering all of the wild dessert options around Cola.

We have a list of ~15 can’t-miss dessert options around Columbia, but today we are starting with just a spoonful of sugar by sharing the first five.
