Are you a lover of Mountain Dew and soft-serve ice cream, too?
If so, you can kill two cravings with one cone at Redford Township’s Dairy Whip, which offers the world’s only Mountain Moo — a combination of Mountain Dew and non-dairy soft serve.
“My husband Josh and I were talking one day and he said, ‘Let’s come up with a Mountain Dew ice cream’, and he did it,” said Cody Hutchison, who has owned Dairy Whip with her husband since 2019.
“It took a while to come up with the perfect recipe; it took quite a few tries, but people love it.”
Like Colonel Sanders’ famous chicken recipe, the Mountain Moo recipe is a family secret, Hutchison revealed.
“I don’t even know it,” she said, smiling. “It’s in my husband’s head.”
The Hutchisons’ wildly-popular flavor is made with real Mountain Dew, so you could conceivably get brain freeze and a caffeine buzz all in one cone.
“There’s probably a little less than the amount of caffeine you’d get in a serving of Mountain Dew,” Hutchison said. “We started selling it in 2020 and it’s become a summer tradition.
“We usually only offer it one or two weeks a year.”
Additional innovative flavors
Although Mountain Moo will only be available this summer until Sunday, June 11, Dairy Whip has other one-of-a-kind menu items you can purchase at 26215 Plymouth Road.
The most-popular always-available item may be its vegan superman cone, which combines blue moon, lemon and wild cherry vegan ice cream stacked atop a vegan sugar cone.
Thanks to its innovative flavors and combination walk-up and drive-through options, the Dairy Whip is a popular place from March through October, Hutchison confirmed.
“On summer nights, the walk-up line is usually past our sign (about 100 feet away) and our drive-through line stretches onto (Plymouth Road) sometimes,” she said.
“On super-busy nights, we’ll have as many as seven employees working in here.”
