A new day for ice cream connoisseurs

Moultrie News. January 20, 2024

Lovers of waffles and ice cream have reason to celebrate due to the recent grand opening of The Dolly Llama Waffle Master outpost at the Wando Crossing shopping mall in Mount Pleasant.

Members of Town Council joined Mount Pleasant Chamber of Commerce reps on the afternoon of Jan. 16 to officially baptize the new ice cream retailer that has set up shop adjacent to the Highway 17 Walmart Supercenter.

The Tuesday ribbon-cutting ceremony afforded local officials and area business leaders an opportunity to sample the shop’s delectable selection of desserts with a tantalizing choice of myriad sauces and toppings.


Owned and operated by the husband-and-wife combo of Michael and Candace McNerny, the new Dolly Llama location offers an assortment of ice cream flavors served in two styles of waffle.

These include a bubble waffle option, described as a Hong Kong street food similar to a crepe or pancake that’s placed in a waffle iron and comes out “nice and fluffy,” according to co-owner Candace. The other waffle cone variation is known as the sweet-tasting OG Liege or  Belgian waffle, which is traditionally crispy on the outside and warm and soft on the inside.


Those who opt to forgo the waffle choices altogether can enjoy their ice cream in a cup or prepared as a milkshake.

Of the 16 ice cream flavors available at the Dolly Llama, three are of the vegan variety for the lactose intolerant.

And those who may be in the mood for something warm can make do with a serving of standard coffee, espresso or cappuccino.

“Growing up, I did work in food and beverage, and I’ve just always loved serving the public and ice cream makes people happy. So, I just want to bring a little happiness to Mount Pleasant,” explained Candace, a California native who resided in Nevada prior to relocating to with her family, dog and two cats to the Lowcountry.

And while the community’s reception has been wonderful, said Candace, she and her husband will be looking to set up outdoor seating and planters to increase visibility as the weather begins to warm.
