We are a small-batch ice cream company with a creativity problem. Since opening our first shop in Brooklyn in 2013, we have concocted more than 500 wacky and weird flavors alongside reimagined and improved classics. Our ice cream is like driving 31 in a 25, honking the horn the entire time.
In 2011, Mohan Kumar had a problem. He needed to find a fix for his wife Holiday, whose strange pregnancy cravings included savory ice cream she couldn’t find on grocery shelves.

Holiday loved it so much that the trio decided to start an ice cream empire, with their first kingdom in Williamsburg.
