The Food Network star loves ice cream so much she opened her own shop
In 2019, Drummond announced that she was opening an ice cream shop in the town of Pawhuska, OK.
She named it after her beloved Basset Hound, Charlie.
Charlie’s Sweet Shop menu items pay tribute to the life Drummond, and her husband Ladd have created on their ranch with their five children. Menu items include “Wild about Berries” and “Road to The Ranch,” via a screenshot of the menu posted to Yelp.
The store also features a touching mural of the Drummond family’s beloved dog.
It features a basset hound with long floppy ears and an ice cream cone on his head. Below the picture reads the text, “In memory of Charlie, the ultimate sweetheart.”
