The middle of a sweltering Ocean County summer is definitely not a bad time to open up a new sweet shop in the middle of Point Pleasant Beach.

Not only did a new sweet shop just open on Bay Avenue, but it's a familiar address for ice cream lovers.

You might remember about two years ago when Toms River native Alexa Hesse added a storefront to her popular ice cream truck business and opened Lexilicious at 512 Bay Avenue.

Earlier this month, Lexilicious announced on their Facebook page that a new location is in the works while the ice cream truck business booms.

In the last week, eagle-eyed ice cream lovers noticed that new signs went up on the same store front and Haven's Sweet Shop started welcoming customers.

Open for about a week now, Haven's Sweet Shop is not only scooping ice cream, but they're also offering some delicious looking treats, like these decadent looking pretzels, one of my chocolate weaknesses:

 

Haven's is also doing something unique (and really smart!).

You know how you can go to your favorite brewery or winery and get a flight of smaller samples if you're having a hard time deciding?

Well, that's exactly what Haven's is doing, but with ice cream instead of alcohol:

Clever, guys, very clever!
