Get your sweets at Snazzy Treats and Eats

Welcome back to another Spotlight Series with Sarah!
I started this series to get to know the city more personally, while my readers can get to know me better in the process.
If you’ve been keeping up with this series, then you might remember that I mentioned I have a sweet tooth in my first Spotlight Series.
Doesn’t matter if it’s in the morning, afternoon, after dinner, or midnight, I’m always down for a sweet treat. Cookies, ice cream, cheesecake, cobbler, donuts; doesn’t matter, I don’t discriminate.
To keep our sweet tooth cravings local, my boyfriend and I visited Snazzy Treats and Eats on Saturday, June 29th. The bright colored walls were the first thing I noticed when we entered the shop. The right side of the store (pink wall) resembled an ice cream parlor, while the left side (orange and blue walls) resembled a convenience store.
We walked up and down the convenience store side checking out what available goodies were stocked on all the shelves, refrigerators, and freezers. The shelves were loaded with items like chips, ramen, pasta noodles, rice, canned vegetables and beans, soups, cereals, crackers, and a variety of candies. You can buy paper towels, paper plates, sugar, and condiments such as ketchup, mustard, mayo, relish, hot sauce, and ranch.
The freezer had frozen vegetables, french fries, pot pies, and individually wrapped ice cream. The refrigerator was stocked with energy drinks, juices, teas, water, pops, eggs, butter, and lots of flavored pickles.

Banana pudding shake and Carolina peach ice cream at Snazzy Treats and Eats.

I grabbed myself a can of Taiwan classic bubble tea (honeydew with tapioca pearls) and my boyfriend picked out two bags of Lays chips: hot chili squid and roasted fish flavour.
We then checked out the ice cream parlor side of the store. The available ice cream flavors were: strawberry cheesecake, Michigan pothole, banana pudding, vanilla, mint chip, Carolina peach, play dough, and cookie jar.
Cheesecake and peach cobbler are two of my favorite desserts, so I asked for a sample of both. Both samples of ice cream were mouth-watering. The strawberry cheesecake had swirls of strawberry and a chunk of cheesecake. The Carolina peach was refreshing and had peach pieces.
I knew I didn’t need any other sample after I tasted the Carolina peach. I got a Carolina peach cup and my boyfriend got a banana pudding shake.
We watched his shake be made right in front of us from the banana pudding ice cream and I was asked if I wanted a lid for my cup. Since we were taking our sweet treats to go, a lid was a great option so the dog hair in my car wouldn’t get stuck in my ice cream.
With how creamy and flavorful the ice cream was, I plan to stop by again for more.
Snazzy Treats and Eats opened in April 2023. “We’re a small market for people to pick their odds-and-ins up. People come in for something like beans, and we’re a last minute pick-me-up spot for ice cream,” said Charlotte Sealie, Snazzy Treats and Eats owner.
Sealie used to work concessions when her kids did football and cheer, and that’s what sparked her desire to start her own business. She still works full-time at her day job, but Snazzy’s is her long-term retirement plan.
“If you want something different, we like to specialize in different,” said Sealie. “There’s not many places you can go and get the same experience.”
Some of Snazzy Treats and Eats’ best-selling items are the banana pudding ice cream, sugar cone, ice cream sandwich extreme, and bubble plates (bubbled pancake with topping and ice cream, powdered sugar, drizzle, whipped cream, and a cherry).
Sealie mentioned that during the winter months, people were asking about non-dairy options, so Snazzy’s now offers Italian ice (blue raspberry, pina colada, lemon, and lime) in a cup or slushies.
“I try to accommodate everybody and I’m always willing to do things when customers ask,” said Sealie. “Just like malts, even though that’s not on the menu.”
Snazzy Treats and Eats always has the following ice cream flavors available: vanilla, superman, Michigan pothole, and banana pudding. Snazzy’s tends to go through an ice cream flavor (three gallon bucket) in a week and a half to two weeks. “If a customer comes back and doesn’t see a flavor that they just had the prior week, just ask about it,” said Sealie. “I could still have it in the back, but it was so slow that I switched to a new flavor.”
Customers can also get involved in creating their unique flavor choice. Sealie mentioned that people like to mix and match the ice cream for milkshakes, or you can buy any item in the store (like a pop, candy, or ice cream) to combine in your shake.
“We provide unique things to test your sweet taste buds,” said Sealie.
Sealie likes the idea of keeping Snazzy Treats and Eats family friendly, and wants people to bring their children in, so she will not be trying to obtain a liquor license or sell cigarettes.
“I’m here for the community,” said Sealie. “I’m local to the area, have lived here for over 25 years, and would like people to come in and see what it’s all about, or just stop in and say hello.” Sealie wants the community to know that Snazzy Treats and Eats accepts EBT payments.
Snazzy Treats and Eats is located at 35139 E Michigan Ave, and is open 1 – 9 p.m. Monday, 3:30 – 9 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, 1 – 9 p.m. Thursday, 1 – 10 p.m. Friday, and 1 – 11 p.m. Saturday.
