Wholesale Ice Cream

Thank you for your interest in Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream Company, Inc.'s wholesale super-premium ice cream.

The Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream Company, Inc. manufactures only the finest super-premium ice cream. Our philosophy is that if you serve the best ice cream in town (at little or no extra cost), you will attract more customers and keep them coming back for more. This philosophy has worked for us for 50 years, and we know it will work well for you. Please take into consideration the following advantages you will gain by serving Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream Company's super-premium ice cream: 

  • Lower overrun (the air added to the ice cream mix) resulting in a creamier, smoother taste.
    To be called super-premium, an ice cream's overrun must be lower than 50%. Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream Company's super-premium ice cream has an overrun of 35% and our 3-gallon cartons weigh 20 pounds. This allows you to receive at least 60, five-ounce scoops from each of our 3-gallon cartons of super-premium ice cream.
  • Higher butterfat giving a richer taste.
    To be called super-premium an ice cream's butterfat must be 14% or higher. Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream Company's super-premium ice cream has a 14% butterfat content.
  • Reduced "volume loss" due to scooping.
    With 100% overrun, approximately 50% of the carton is filled with air and the other half is cream. Therefore, as you scoop out of the carton you compress the ice cream and push the air out of it resulting in "volume loss". You can greatly reduce "volume loss" and receive more scoops per carton by using Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream Company's super-premium ice cream since only 30% of our carton is filled with air. Our own testing with existing wholesale customers has shown that an average of four more scoops per 3-gallon carton can be obtained by using our super-premium ice cream, instead of a competitor's ice cream that has a higher overrun. Since there is less "volume loss" with our super-premium ice cream, this should offset most of the additional cost, if any, for our wholesale products.
  • Smaller ice crystals resulting in a smoother product.
    Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream Company's low-overrun super-premium ice cream contains smaller ice crystals because it contains less air. Smaller ice crystals reduce product "graininess", which is caused when the product is warmed to scooping temperature and exposed to air.
  • Over 110 flavors to choose from.
    With products ranging from super-premium ice cream to non-fat frozen yogurt to soy ice cream, Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream has an option for all frozen dessert lovers! Every one of our 110 flavors is made of only the highest quality ingredients and is certified Kosher. Check out our comprehensive flavors page for a complete list of all our flavors and dessert options.
