2. Lickity Split Ice Cream Shop 

Located in Augusta, Lickity Split Ice Cream Shop serves both Plainwell and MOO-ville ice cream brands along with shakes, malts, and other snacks. Their most recent Facebook post was in September which, in the age of the pandemic, makes me wonder if they're still open. However, I found no indication that they've closed. But, I would encourage you to call before visiting.
