Wild Country Maple Syrup

They are always looking at quality suppliers that can grow with the business, and Wild Maple fits the bill. Jeff and Lara enjoy this syrup regularly and are always delighted by the deliciously complex flavor. Wild Country Maple Syrup makes its home in our Maple Nut ice cream.

Nielsen Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract
Our choice for vanilla is produced from hand selected beans from Madagascar.
Nielsen Massey has been in business since 1907, making premium vanilla for high end food production. They use a cold extraction process that preserves the 300+ natural flavors found in vanilla beans, creating a full flavor profile of creamy, mellow flavors. Jeff and Lara chose this vanilla for its pristine reputation and its wonderful consistent flavor. When Jeff met with the Nielsen family to learn about the vanilla trade and purchasing vanilla, he fell in love with the flavor of this particular vanilla because it stood out against all the rest. Nielsen Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract finds its home in our Vanilla Izzy’s Ice Cream, and is included in many of our other flavors.
How to enjoy? Jeff and Lara use this in french toast batter. Jeff is a French toast making pro. Lara also uses this as her secret weapon in her famous chocolate oatmeal cookies. Double yum!
Guittard Quetzalcoatl Bittersweet Chocolate
Crafting fine chocolate since 1868, Guittard is a winner for one of our choices of chocolate.The dark, rich, flavors found in the Quetzalcoatl Bittersweet Chocolate are the perfect base for our Izzy’s Chocolate ice cream.
Guittard is 5th generation family-owned and it has a deep understanding of crafting fine confectionery. Jeff and Lara choose this chocolate because, simply, it’s their favorite and just the best. Jeff was invited as a guest ice cream maker to Guittard, and loved that they’re a family operation, and of course loved their premium product! We use Guittard’s Quetzalcoatl Bittersweet Chocolate and it’s premium cocoa powder. In our constant search for flavor excellence we are always working on making the chocolate ice cream better, and there will always be room for improvement. But nothing beats the flavor found in this particular candy bar and our chocolate ice cream! Guittard chocolate finds its home in our Chocolate-based ice cream flavors.

Wonderland Park Espresso beans from Peace Coffee
