Halo Top ice cream shops have been sprouting up all over L.A. in the past year. Next up is an opening in the city’s beating commercial heart, the Grove.

The Grove location will be a freestanding kiosk, so you can stroll right up for a quick ice cream break in the middle of your shopping trip. The offerings will be similar to the previous shops, with a mix of scooped and soft serve ice cream, dairy and non-dairy.

This shop will have some impressive new topping choices to try, including potato chips, bacon, caramel popcorn, chocolate-covered strawberries, cookies, and entire doughnut holes–and since the ice cream boasts that it has less than half the calories of most competing brands, you might as well indulge.

In honor of the shop’s launch on August 24, they’ll be handing out free ice cream to the first 100 customers that stop by, so if you haven’t tried Halo Top yet, this could be your chance to check out what everyone’s been talking about. Grand opening celebrations continue through Sunday, including an interactive, selfie-optimized “playground” inspired by the company’s most popular flavors, birthday cake, rainbow swirl, and strawberry.

This marks the third store to open since the brand debuted it’s Scoop Shop concept at the Westfield Topanga mall in December, followed by a second outpost in Century City. A fourth location at the Americana in Glendale is also on the horizon.
