Taylor Swift was impressed by the efforts of her 16-year-old fan who runs her own ice cream shop.

Taylor Swift fans in Pennsylvania can also enjoy a variety of ice cream flavors inspired by the pop star.

Ripleigh Maring is a 16-year-old student from McSherrystown, Pennsylvania, who owns Ripleigh’s Creamery.

Ahead of Taylor Swift’s three concerts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, as part of “The Eras Tour,” Maring has created new Taylor Swift flavors for the event, Pennsylvania’s Fox 43 reported.

All the flavors are named after some of Taylor Swift’s most popular songs – including ‘Lavender Haze’, ‘Bad Blood’, ‘Love Story’, ‘Karma’ and ‘Wildest Dreams’.

The store went viral on TikTok after Taylor Swift gave Ripleigh Maring a special surprise a few days before her concerts in Pennsylvania.

Although Taylor Swift won’t be able to visit the store, she made sure to let Ripleigh Maring know she was impressed with her efforts.

On Thursday, May 11, Taylor Swift sent her four bouquets of red roses, Ripleigh Maring revealed in an online TikTok video.

In a TikTok video that has been viewed nearly four million times, Ripleigh Maring revealed that among the red roses was a personal letter from Taylor Swift.

“Ripley, I’m sorry I couldn’t come to your ice cream shop,” the singer wrote.

“I’m sure ‘Karma’ is amazing. You are very creative. Keep working hard to make your dreams come true,” he added.

The 16-year-old high school student revealed in her video that Taylor Swift’s performance brought tears to her eyes.

Speaking to Fox 43, Ripleigh Maring encouraged other Taylor Swift fans to visit her store and dress in the style of the singer’s albums, just like they would at a concert.

Ripleigh Maring has been running the store since she was 14 years old and calls it her passion.

A young Taylor Swift fan has turned her passion into a modern business – which has caught the attention of one of the world’s most famous pop artists.

Ripleigh Maring attended Taylor Swift’s “The Eras Tour” concert in Tampa, Florida last month — but most of Ripleigh’s crew will attend her concerts in Philadelphia this weekend, she noted.
