Lick-ity Split has always been a staple of Grand Ledge, and on April 9, 2022, it officially opened for the season. Now, it may have been quite cold that day, but that did not stop people from getting a cone. This local business is beloved by the community, and for good reason too.

Lick-ity Split has many options for treats, including: soft-serve and dipped cones, shakes, slushes, flurries, and a wide assortment of sundaes. Recently, the business added a Dole Whip, a dairy-free pineapple flavored soft-serve, to the menu. They open at noon and close at eight thirty on Monday-Thursday, and Sundays. On Fridays and Saturdays, however, they have 12-9 hours, since they tend to have more business on the weekend.

During the summer, it is not uncommon to see people lined up waiting for a turn to order delicious and refreshing treats. Many people from nearby neighborhoods like to walk, but people from all over drive to town just for ice cream. Lick-ity Split is especially popular during Grand Ledge’s many summer events, festivals, and parades. Win or lose, Lick-ity Split is a great place to celebrate a victory or strategize for the next time after a baseball, softball, or soccer game. Lick-ity Split is also popular among the canine crowd for their pup-cups topped with a doggie bone and a touch of peanut butter. There truly is something to please everyone.

Lick-ity Split is just a short stroll from Island park and Jaycee park. This makes it the perfect place to grab a sweet treat and take a leisurely walk to enjoy views of the Grand River or some music in the park. It is also a great place to grab dessert after enjoying dinner at one of Grand Ledge’s downtown restaurants. With quick service and friendly staff, Lick-ity Split is a cool place to cool off.
