In the middle of a busy rush, Arroyl scrambles to restock the mix in toppings for spinners. Spinners, which can be compared to Dairy Queen Blizzards or McDonald's Flurries, is a pretty popular treat at Hartzell's. Spinners are made with either soft serve or home made ice cream, normally chocolate or vanilla. Spinners are a very personal treat, each customer can make their's from scratch if they desire. There are 55 different mix ins, toppings, that can mixed into a Spinner. If a customer wants a candy mix in, such as Kit Kat or Twix, the employee chops up a full sized candy bar to add to the Spinner.
Pretty happy with the fast service, Jess LaBella and Sarah Foley enjoy their treats. "They are always pretty fast, and the ice cream tastes so good" LaBella said. LaBella is a more frequent and satisfied customer while it was Foley's second visit.
