More Ways to Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth with Dolly
Dolly Parton’s cake mixes aren’t the only sweet treats you can enjoy! There are other ways you can satisfy your sweet tooth while celebrating your favorite superstar as well. Here are some of our favorites:
With Jeni’s ice cream: Jeni’s is an artisan ice cream company based in Ohio. In April of 2021, Jeni’s partnered with Dolly Parton to release a special Dolly-inspired treat: Strawberry Pretzel Pie. This ice cream flavor features cream cheese ice cream with swirls of strawberry sauce and salty pretzel streusel. It’s Southern and sweet — just like Dolly! The company is re-releasing this delicious flavor online in April 2022! You can learn more here.
With cinnamon bread from the Grist Mill: If you love Dollywood, we know you’ve heard of this sweet treat. The Grist Mill offers world-famous cinnamon bread! You will always see a long line outside of the Grist Mill as Dollywood visitors wait to get their hands on this warm and delicious treat. If you can’t make it to the theme park to enjoy the cinnamon bread, don’t worry — make it at home with this secret recipe!
Things to Do in the Smokies if You Love Dolly Parton
It’s no secret that Dolly Parton is our own Smoky Mountain hometown hero! You’ll find bits of Dolly Parton sprinkled all around the area. If you love Dolly (which of course you do!) there are plenty of fun things you should do around town. In Downtown Sevierville, there is a Dolly Parton statue! Grab your family and friends and take a picture standing with Dolly. While you’re downtown, stop by the butterfly mural! The mural, titled “Wings of Wander,” was painted by local artist Pinkie Mistry. It was inspired by Dolly Parton and her love for butterflies. Other things to do if you love Dolly are, of course, visit Dollywood, cool off at Dollywood’s Splash Country during the summer, or check out the mural of young Dolly at Old Red’s Cafe on Bruce Street!
