Summer Ice Cream

Summer’s in full swing and it’s ice cream time!

Visit our Deli to experience the Co-op’s handmade ice cream, crafted in small batches, using local ingredients. In addition to our classics — Vanilla, Chocolate, Coffee — check out these favorite and returning flavors:

  • brownfieldCherry Chocolate Chunk:  farm direct from Brownfield Orchard in Chelan, WA. Juicy, organic red cherries make their way to the Co-op from Chelan, where they meet hunks of rich, dark chocolate fair trade Guittard Chocolate, and become enrobed in our silky Vanilla ice cream. A delight on its own or served atop a freshly baked Chocolate Chip Cookie.
  • Chocolate Brownie — Our house-made brownies meet their match with vanilla ice cream. Why complicate matters? Some things are just best made simply.
  • Chocolate Peanut Butter Caramel Swirl — all the usual suspects are here: organic, freshly ground peanut butter (also available for purchase in bulk), made-from-scratch caramel sauce, and melted dark chocolate. Together they combine to create something truly enjoyable.

Do you enjoy your frozen delights dairy-free? Fresh Raspberry and Orange sorbet are available, made from local whole fruit, lemon juice, and filtered water.

Stay tuned for more exciting frozen treats in CONES, our new community-owned business, a part of our upcoming marketplace, C•SQUARE, located at 309 S. 3rd Street, adjacent to the Co-op building. Save the date: join us for an Open House on September 10th, 2016. Our new venture CONES will feature frozen novelties like ice cream bars, sandwiches, and more.
