Ice Cream Trail

The Oxford Creamery | Oxford, MS

At The Oxford Creamery, the goal is to play on nostalgia. “We strive to make ice creams that taste like they’re from here, or taste like another time,” said Denver Bidwell. Before Oxford Creamery opened in August 2019, Hudson Magee, the owner, hired Bidwell as the chef. For Bidwell, who has worked from butcher shops and fine dining alike, his brain’s now frozen on the sweet treat.


Magnolia Creamery | Tupelo, MS

Magen Bynum saw a need and a market in Tupelo for snow cones, so she decided to open up shop. Since she also owns Magnolia Salt and Bath Co, she decided a snow cone truck would be the best option.


Chunky Chuck’s | Columbus, MS

Regina Unruh remembers when her friend Chuck showed her his next project: a pink-painted, flamingo-stuffed ice cream shop. Instantly, she loved it.

“You have people come in here and it’s just happy, it’s just a happy atmosphere,” she said.


Saxon’s | Houston, MS

Saxon’s has been serving the Houston community since 1972. Ashley Henry’s weekly order was a chocolate milkshake and a cheeseburger – which is still her go-to – but back then she had no idea where Saxon’s would take her. In 2013, Henry and her husband bought the drive-in and beloved restaurant.
