We love some Charlies Bakery and Ceamery! Have you been before? They’ve added #superpremiumicecream to their collection of goodies, and we have to say, it’s delicious. It has less air in it than other varieties and more fat content, which means more flavor. They didn’t pay us to say that, it’s just the truth. They just signed up for the Bungalower Buddy Keyholder program too, so if you buy some ice cream, you can get a free cookie from the “Baker’s Dozen Cookie Category,” with your purchase. That includes the oatmeal, molasses, and chocolate chips. Delicious. Don’t have a keychain yet? Go to and join today for just $20. Go and say hi to Charlie’s asap! #bungalowerbuddy #ireaditonbungalower #buylocal #cookies #icecream #orlandothings #thisisorlando
