“You come here so much, Why don’t you just buy it?” Started as a joke for Kathy Ruholl until, a month later, she followed through and purchased Teutopolis Tropical Sno. What started out as a treat after her tennis matches grew into a welcoming ice cream and treat shop known and cherished by all who reside in the Teutopolis area. Serving everything from traditional tropical sno, soft serve ice cream, and even Cookie Monster sundaes, Teutopolis Treats has everything you need for a sweet surprise. Ruholl says her favorite treat is a cherry on top, whether it be a cherry dipped cone or a cherry flavoring. Today, she has owned the business for 15 years, moving over to a new “Teutopolis Treats” domain and location 7 years ago.
Although the delicious indulgences draw a crowd, the atmosphere makes them stay. Find the white picnic tables and umbrellas bustling with locals straight from church, fresh off the tennis court, kids on bikes, and even, sometimes, people riding in on horses. High school employees have a special relationship with their customers and boss as they chat and create happiness whenever they serve the treats. When you visit Teutopolis Treats, it is clear that you are getting so much more than ice cream, and I don’t just mean countless toppings! Enjoy a friendly smile, and make a great memory relaxing and hanging out with friends and family at this local hub.
