Sparks Cafe Soda Fountain

After walking through Walton’s 5 & 10 and seeing all the history of Walmart in downtown Bentonville, AR, you will come out at Sparks Cafe Soda Fountain.  The Cafe is a retro ice cream parlor.  They serve Yarnell’s ice cream which is a fantastic ice cream company from Arkansas.  Sam Walton sold Yarnell’s ice cream in his first franchise.  While eating ice cream, we were able to show our children retro t.v.’s, radio’s, and more.  We even watched a little “I Love Lucy” while enjoying our ice cream.  We had a great time in this retro ice cream parlor.  It was a fun way to end our walking tour through the history of Walmart.
