- Lazy Dog Ice Cream Shop : Famous for Dutch Licorice: 20+ Kinds
- Two years ago I posted on Lazy Dog’s dutch licorice selection as being the best in Grass Valley. It seems that during the last two years they have expanded their offerings and now offer – on site over 20 types of dutch licorice. (In addition they also offer fresh chocolates, ice cream, gelato etc). So in the interest of Displaced Dutch people that like salt licorice – please find an update…
Lazy Dog shop in Grass Valley (front window view) has more than ice cream to offer: Anise Bears, double salt coins, licorice cats, licorice trucks and those little sweet salty cubes are all on the shelves.
Yesterday, (Halloween) I stopped by and this is what i found:

Just photos this time – so many good times this summer… these were all from an Ice Cream Sunday Party one Friday Night in July. Summer is moving to fall and the pool is now just 74 now–so I’m looking forward to next summer – and to the fall colors we hope to see from the peach and plum trees. Next summer I promise to take more photos
