Sweet Emotion Dishes

The newly-opened stand dishes out soft-serve dairy-free ice cream and pizza from The Big Slice.

Sweet Emotion has made the quest to find vegan offerings in Springfield a bit easier. Last week, the walk-up stand officially opened, debuting dairy-free pizza by The Big Slice and oat milk-based ice cream.

The menu, as the name might imply, centers around sweet frozen treats. You can order your dessert in a cup or cone, and choose between chocolate or vanilla. Either way, the order comes out black to fit the business's emo-punk-pop theme.

Paying homage to the adjoining Outland Ballroom venue, Sweet Emotion attaches musically-inspired names to its signature ice cream and topping combinations. For example, the Jimmy Eat Swirl comes with hot fudge and white mocha swirl with Oreo crumbles and sprinkles. For a fruitier experience, try a Dream Whip. This Dole-Whip-inspired offering comes in pineapple or strawberry flavors.

To avoid a sugar crash, order a slice of pizza first. Sweet Emotion sources its pizza from The Big Slice and keeps an ample supply of vegan and non-vegan pizza on hand for your by-the-slice needs. You'll find classic flavors on the menu including pepperoni, cheese and veggie with vegan cheese.

Sweet Emotion is open Monday through Wednesday from 11am to 2pm and 5 to 10pm, Thursday and Friday from 11am to 2pm and 5pm to midnight, Saturday from 11am to midnight and Sunday from 11am to 10pm.
