  • Vanilla

    We use a combination of vanilla extract and vanilla paste from the great Nielsen-Massey Vanillas.

  • Chocolate

    Made with cocoa powder and Callebaut chocolate.

  • Vietnamese Coffee

    Why “Vietnamese”? We use espresso beans (from Carrboro Coffee) and sweetened condensed milk, just like you’d get in a Vietnamese restaurant (or a Thai restaurant, or Guglhupf)

  • Salted Butter Caramel

    Made with butter, cream, and lots of coarse sea salt, this is our most popular flavor.

    We take fresh peaches, roast them in the oven with a bit of sugar, and blend them into our ice cream base for a real peach flavor.

    We make our own lemon curd and mix it into our ice cream base for a sweet and tangy treat

    Both semi-sweet and dark chocolate are melted into a coconut milk base for a super smooth and creamy vegan ice cream. Probably the best vegan ice cream we’ve made yet.

  • Vegan Salted Caramel

    Vegan

    The vegan counterpart to our wildly popular Salted Butter Caramel. We caramelize sugar, skipping the butter and cream, and add it to a coconut milk base. The coconut is noticeable but not dominant and blends deliciously with the caramel flavor.

  • Chocolate Peppermint

    Chocolate ice cream infused with fresh peppermint

    We steep fresh local mint in our ice cream base and then strain it out before churning. If you miss the chocolate chips, try it in a Classic Hot Fudge or Brownie Sundae!

    A quince is a fruit that’s kind of like an apple or pear, but not really. It’s got a more fragrant, almost floral taste. Really, you should just try it. Mr. Parlour’s mom brought us a bunch from Pennsylvania, and we cooked them down into a jam before adding them to our ice cream base.
