A Cookie + Ice Cream Match

On September 1st, 2016, we opened the doors to our brand new cookie shop in Bressi Ranch, an amazing community within Carlsbad, CA. This location not only serves delicious Cravory Cookies, but there is a full service espresso bar brewing local San Diego James’ Coffee. As if a new shop, new neighborhood and coffee wasn’t enough, we decided to take it one step further with...ICE CREAM.

When the idea of adding ice cream first came about, it was extremely important to us that we serve ice cream that is up to the same quality as we hold our cookies to. This process served to be tedious, yet necessary (and yummy!) and we embarked upon the adventure of choosing an ice cream supplier. After sampling over 25 different brands of ice cream, we very excitingly began our partnership with Lappert’s Ice Cream.

Lappert’s began in 1983 when Walter Lappert decided he wanted to make and sell his own ice cream in Kauai, Hawaii. Walter moved to Hawaii with his family and began creating ice cream in Hanapepe Kauai. Since then, Walter’s son, Michael, has maintained the Lappert quality here in the continental US, yet the two companies run separately. You can still taste the Hawaiian flavor in many of the available flavors; from coconut to  The Lappert’s ice cream found at Cravory Cookies, is produced not too far away in Richmond, California. It just seemed perfectly right to partner up with a wonderful company, who comes from humble beginnings, just like us.

Once we selected the ice cream supplier, the dream of including ice cream into our repertoire began to feel like a reality! Our next step: menu creation. Our cookie chefs assisted in the creation of the menu and made sure to pair the cookies and ice cream perfectly. A few of the sundaes offered include:
