The term “Homemade” refers to the production method. Hot Licks ice cream is made by the individual batch, forty quarts at a time, as opposed to the continuous flow system used by large companies to turn out thousands of gallons of each flavor.
The batch freezing method, combined with the use of the very finest ingredients obtainable, imparts an “old fashioned” or “homemade” characteristic to the ice cream that is absent from even the best of the national brands.
Batch freezing also allows for tremendous flexibility and virtually unlimited flavor possibilities. Where is the fun in making your own ice cream if you can’t make any flavor you can imagine?
Alaska may have a lot of cow moose, but dairy cows are in short supply. In our early days our ice cream mix was made for us by a local dairy but even then additional cream had to be sent up from Oregon.
As our usage increased, we found that the Alaska dairies did not have enough cows to produce our ice cream mix.
Our Pledge To You
We have been making small batch ice cream for over twenty-five years and we have never attempted to cut costs at the expense of quality.
Every day that we make it we will always make it the best we can. Many of our customers are lifelong Alaskans and many more are once in a lifetime visitors to our state.
We want to please everyone. We welcome your questions, comments, and requests.
