There's now hope at the end of the security check line for folks flying out of Terminal 4 at Phoenix Sky Harbor. Beginning at 8 a.m. today, Sweet Republic airport outpost will be slinging scoops, cups, cones, and shakes for weary travelers. If you're anywhere near Gate B5, you're going to want to get your buns over to Sweet Republic to try one (or all) of its eight ice cream and four sorbet flavors.
With waffle cones and waffle bowls being made on site and all your favorite Sweet Republic cookies and sundaes being offered, the airport just got a little less frustrating and a lot more, well, sweet.
While some of the flavors will change seasonally, ice cream fans can expect to see salted butter caramel, almond butter crunch, Madagascar vanilla, Belgian chocolate, brownie swirl, peanut butter chip, real mint chip, and Peaberry espresso right now. If you're dairy-free, don't worry. You can get the delicious basil lime, coconut, strawberry, or chocolate sorbets to soothe that sweet tooth between destinations.
Now if only that other Phoenix location would open up, then we wouldn't have to buy a plan ticket to get Sweet Republic's treats within the city limits.
