Publish date:

Candace Cameron Bure, best known for playing D.J. Tanner on both Full and Fuller House, popped into a small-town Minnesota ice cream shop last week.

A Facebook post shows Bure – smiling, as anyone holding a chocolate-dipped cone should be – with a couple of employees at the Tip Top Dairy Bar in Osakis, Minnesota.

"So the girls were pretty excited when they noticed this special person at the Tip Top tonight!!! How exciting 🍦🍦" the caption says.

The dairy bar said on its Facebook page that Bure's stop-in made for "an exciting weekend," calling her "extremely friendly and a class act.... Thanks for stopping and having some ice cream with us!!!"

But what exactly was she doing in west-central Minnesota?

As Bure posted on social media, her son graduated from the hockey-centric NorthStar Christian Academy in Alexandria, Minnesota. TODAY says she has three children with her husband - former NHLer Valeri Bure.
