The Texas heat just isn't letting up, and neither are the ice cream shops.

Melt Ice Creams has opened up a new shop in Sundance Square, Fort Worth's entertainment and shopping district. This is the third location for the company, with the other two in Fort Worth's southside enclave Magnolia and in Dallas' Bishop Arts District.

The new 550-square-foot "micro scoop shop," a small space with less seating, is hard to miss, painted in Melt's signature bright yellow.

Melt is owned by married couple Kari Crowe-Seher and Mark Seher. Originally from a small town in Georgia, Crowe-Seher has called Fort Worth her home for the last 15 years. She says she's excited that Sundance Square is embracing more local businesses - like Melt and FunkyTown Donuts - because it makes the space more distinctively Fort Worth.

Community is important to Crowe-Seher. She says they've picked locations for Melt shops that would feel like the store is part of that community. The Fort Worth Parade of Lights is an event she usually watches, but she gets to be part of it this year, she says.

With flavors like Les Fraises, a strawberry buttermilk flavor inspired by the current Monet exhibit at the Kimbell Art Museum, and Boozy Buccaneer, a pineapple ice cream with spiced rum caramel swirls, Crowe-Seher hopes coming into the store can be the best 5 minutes of somebody's day. Vegan options are also available and some ice cream is seasonal.
