Oh my gosh — we think it’s really happening.
We first heard scuttlebutt a few weeks back that Bruster’s Real Ice Cream was considering opening a shop in Ashburn. And now it looks like that scuttlebutt is true.
Bruster’s will reportedly be moving into the Broadlands Village Center shopping plaza at Claiborne Parkway and Broadlands Boulevard. It will be taking over the corner unit vacated by Starbucks when the coffee house moved to a new freestanding building a few months ago.
Bruster’s Real Ice Cream is a Pennsylvania-based company with nearly 200 locations in 20 states and even some overseas. The brand has more than a hundred flavors in its recipe book — many of them seasonal — and the ice cream is made in the store each day. Get ready for flavors like Chocolate Raspberry Truffle, Southern Banana Puddin’, and Caramel Apple Crunch.
No word yet when Bruster’s will open in the Broadlands, but it can’t come soon enough.
