Merritt Movie ExpertsMay 2016 we launched The Sweet Spot in Merritt Movie Experts. For
several years Merritt Movie Experts has served up ice-cream, with it
growing a little bit each year. Last fall we decided to expand yet again
and to do something to make the ice-cream a little less seasonal. After
months of searching, deciding, debating and a little bit of fate
stepping in, we bought the equipment to make our own fudge and popcorn.
Add one major renovation and The Sweet Spot was born. In December 2017, we had to move from our old location to our new one. This meant revamping our display layouts and kitchen. We are hoping it will be a more efficient system but it will take a summer season to find that out.

What's the Scoop
We have Foothills hard ice cream available to scoop all year. We make our own waffle cones and bowls in store. We also offer ice-cream floats and bowls of ice-cream. So if you don't like a cone you have a choice.
Mother's Day 2016 weekend we started making fudge in store. We are using Calico Fudge's recipes which is made with real butter and cream. Calico Fudge is the same high end fudge you will find in Hell's Gate and other touristy area like Banff and Jasper. But it's right here in Merritt!
Well if ice-cream and fudge aren't you thing, we also have fancy popcorn. Right in store we are making candied, savory and kettle corns. As well as our yummy theater popcorn.
Savory popcorn are our kettle popped corn tumbled with seasonings and / or liquid cheese. Savory types are low in sugar but higher in salt.
Candied popcorn are also our kettle popped corn, coated with liquid sugar based flavourings. Candied types are low in salt but high in sugar.
Kettle corns are in the middle having less sugar then a candied and less salt then a savory. They are also easy to make in vegan version. So far we have figured out 3 types of kettle corns: Sweet & Salty, Salt & Pepper, and Latte (Coffee) and will expand the flavours as we make more recipes.
