Sweet Science Ice Cream will close its St. Paul location this spring in order to open a new store in Edina.

Sweet Science Ice Cream’s new location at Nolan Mains at 50th and France is slated to open in late May. The store uses “food science and all-natural ingredients” to make its products, including pints, sundaes and novelty items.

“Sweet Science is thrilled to bring local ice cream back to 50th & France!” said owner and founder Ashlee Olds in a statement. “We look forward to creating a delicious atmosphere of community through the best ice cream around, just in time for summer.”

The store’s current location at the Keg and Case Market in St. Paul, which first opened in 2011, will close, according to the announcement.

Sweet Science will feature options for certain dietary needs, including gluten-free waffle cones, as well as seasonal offerings.

This spring, the store will serve Blood Orange Cream, and the summer will feature Lime Curd White Chocolate and Peach Cobbler flavors.

The announcement also cited the new location’s outdoor seating areas and nearby retail shopping.

"It’s the perfect place to grab a scoop and do some retail shopping. It’s time to relax and enjoy ourselves again,” Olds said in a statement. 

The press release says that Olds "hopes to one day soon scoop again in Saint Paul," having previously operated at the Como Lakeside Pavilion and Delicata Pizza & Gelato before Keg & Case.
