The Charmery has announced Adventures in Ice Cream, an ice-cream membership program the Hampden ice cream shop is launching in January.
Each month, members will receive two pints of ice cream -- one of them will be a seasonal flavor being featured in the ice cream shop. The second pint will be a members-only exclusive flavor concocted by Charmery owner and master creamer David Alima.
The Adventures in Ice Cream membership is $60 for the three months beginning in January and $200 for all of 2015. In addition to the special pints, members will receive a special in-store monthly treat, things like specialty toppings and distinctly flavored marshmallows.
Memberships are for sale at The Charmery or by visiting www.thecharmery.com.
