The Charmery Owners Share Top 10 Flavors From Their First 10 Years

From Baltimore Magazine:

A lot has changed since David and Laura Alima peeled back the butcher paper on the windows to unveil their Hampden ice cream shop, The Charmery, at 801 W. 36th St. on July 20, 2013. 

For starters, the Avenue flagship now has four sister locations: a shop and production facility at Union Collective in Medfield, as well as stores in Towson, Columbia, and Chevy Chase. Another, slated to open at The Parks at Walter Reed in Washington, D.C. proper, is also on its way.

Additionally, the initial team of 15 has now grown to 150 staffers, including front-of-house scoopers, ice cream makers, delivery drivers, and store managers. 

As regulars know, The Charmery’s imaginative, experimental flavors (everything from the fan-favorite “Ice Cream Sando” and “Saturday Morning Cartoons” to “Butter Popcorn Pecan” and “Mezcal-Lime Strawberry”) are perhaps what the shop has become best known for throughout the years. Many of them have been the result of countless collaborations with other creatives, special events (Ice Cream for Breakfast and the Kiddie Scoop Ball Drop on New Year’s Eve have become annual favorites), or community fundraisers for organizations in need.
