Sweet Melissa’s Ice Cream

Sweet Melissa’s Ice Cream was started in 2009 with a delicious dream by Matt and Melissa Kenny!​ Made from scratch using many local ingredients! Our flavor list is endless and is constantly changing!

About Sweet Melissa’s Ice Cream

Our dairy ice cream base is made up of milk, cream, sugar, egg yolks, milk powder, and a small amount of guar gum.  We are definitely not against using natural stabilizers in our ice cream, as it aids in the decrease in ice crystal growth and helps keep it a uniform emulsion (a combination of liquids that don’t normally mix together)- which helps gives our ice cream a delightful and creamy texture, consistently. 
Our non dairy base is solely made up of organic coconut milk, organic sugar, and a small amount of guar gum (for the reasons stated above).
