Food Spotlight: Three Twins Sundae Cone

 

 

We did it! After years of development, I am ecstatic to bring a Three Twins interpretation of the sundae cone to you! It's the first organic one in the market, and I bet you'll think that it's also the best.

There's a sundae cone out there named after a poultry leg, and do you know what it lists as its first ingredient? It is...drum roll, please...whey. Not milk, but whey. You might be thinking, "No way!" But this is, in fact, the truth. That iconic brand isn't even ice cream!

Our sundae cones take a different route when it comes to ingredients. We start with organic cones that are coated with chocolate on the inside and then filled with organic ice cream that is made from organic milk, organic cream and organic sugar. We top it all off with a drizzle of chocolate and roasted peanuts. And, the result is magnificent.

 

Ingredients

organic milk, organic sugar cone (organic wheat flour, organic brown sugar, organic soybean oil, salt, organic soy lecithin, organic vanilla extract), organic cream, organic cane sugar, organic semi-sweet chocolate (organic unsweetened chocolate, organic cane sugar, organic cocoa butter, organic soy lecithin, organic whole milk powder, organic natural vanilla extract), organic peanuts, organic nonfat milk, organic vanilla extract, organic locust bean gum. allergy warning: product contains milk, peanut, wheat and soy. manufactured on equipment that also processes eggs, corn and tree nuts.

About the company

Three Twins was born in San Rafael, California in 2005 when Founding Twin Neal Gottlieb set out to craft delicious, affordable and accessible ice cream exclusively using incredible organic ingredients.

Before writing the business plan for Three Twins Ice Cream, Founding Twin Neal Gottlieb was sharing an apartment with his twin brother, Carl, and Carl’s wife, Liz, who is also a twin. The trio dubbed their apartment “Three Twins” and when it came time to start the company, Neal knew just what to call it.

Though it’s been a pretty great ride for more than a decade, that doesn’t mean there haven’t been some bumps along the way: landlords too nervous to take a chance on an ice cream entrepreneur with little money and limited experience, 90-hour weeks making and selling scoops and trying to keep a business afloat, cold, rainy winters (remember those?) with dismal sales.

But after a couple of years, things began to take off. Restaurants came calling. We started selling at the Berkeley Farmers' Market and began

Industry News: Celebrated Craft Ice Cream Company Reaffirms Commitment to Food Safety with Certification

 

 

Graeter’s Ice Cream Achieves Level 2 SQF 2000 Certification In The Name of Food Safety

CINCINNATI, OH (May, 2016) – Graeter’s Ice Cream, a 146-year-old family owned and operated craft ice cream brand, is proud to announce that it has achieved Level 2 SQF 2000 Certification from the SQF Institute. The Safe Quality Food Program is a leading global food safety and quality certification and management system that is committed to producing the safest, best tasting and most affordable products available. This certification further ensures that Graeter’s Ice Cream will continue to deliver a product that promises excellence in quality and food safety, ultimately speaking to the company’s attention to serving families and ice cream lovers with confidence as a leader in food processing.

“Product quality goes beyond taste,” said Richard Graeter, fourth-generation owner and CEO of Graeter’s Ice Cream. “The same passion that goes into crafting our ice cream 2½ gallons at a time also drives us to pay special attention to making a safe product.”

In understanding that today’s consumers are more educated about their food than ever before, Graeter’s chose to undergo the rigorous process to become Level 2 SQF 2000 Certified to provide consumers next-level protection in terms of food safety. Additionally, Graeter’s has found that the certification promotes a keen sense of awareness within the company. Companies that adhere to the practices established by the SQF Institute assure customers that their food products have been produced, processed, prepared and handled according to the highest standards.

Among a select number of ice cream companies furthering their commitment to food safety with an SQF Certification, Graeter’s has again established itself as a leader in the category. While maintaining the French Pot process, allowing each two-gallon batch of ice cream to be frozen and packed by hand, supplemental elements of the production process recently underwent an expansion to add an upgraded hardening spiral freezer and more French Pot Freezers. Each upgraded element provides the company the capacity to meet a growing nationwide demand. Since opening in 2010, it has maintained a pristine record of cleanliness and quality. By combining its traditional made-by-hand process with the rigorous modern food safety protocols that define SQF Certification, Graeter’s Ice Cream continues to set itself apart from its competitors and position the company for continued success.

“We are proud to be one of the few ice cream makers with both an artisanal process and a Level 2 SQF 2000 Certification,” said Graeter. “Food quality and safety have always been top-of-mind for us, as well as something we take great pride in. It not only gives our consumers another level of transparency but also gives us the ability to continue producing the best ice cream that makes Graeter’s so special as we continue to grow.”

 

About Graeter’s
Graeter’s Ice Cream produces craft ice cream using the small batch, artisanal, French Pot process, dating back over a century. Graeter’s has won the hearts of ice cream enthusiasts across the country as well as the respect of the nation’s most influential foodies.  Winner of the 2015 Munchie Award for best ice cream in the United States, the Cincinnati-based company remains family owned and operated and continues to handcraft ice cream 2½ gallons at a time.  Today, Graeter’s has more than 50 retail stores and ship over 300,000 pints annually for online mail order sales. Graeter’s can also be found in more than 6,000 grocery stores in 46 states. Visit www.graeters.com for more information.

We are Phin & Phebes (pronounced "Fin" and "Feebes") Ice Cream of Brooklyn, New York. We make unique and interesting flavors with a little something for everyone. All of our flavors start out in our home kitchen and we produce them on a larger scale so we can share them with you.

Our philosophy about ice cream is simple: it should be fun for adults and kids, unpretentious, delicious (of course) and surprising in the best way possible. We want to change the way you think about ice cream.

Our Dairy & Ingredients

We do not put stabilizers or syrups in our ice cream because we believe that ice cream can be one of the purest foods if made properly. Additionally we use only the best all-natural ingredients and our hormone free dairy comes from family owned farms across New York, Rhode Island and Massachusetts.

Open, taste and experience pure, all-natural joy.

 

 

The beginning...

We made our first batch of ice cream in February of 2010 when looking for a yummy wintertime hobby. We brainstormed a flavor that was inspired by the Ritz cracker sandwiches filled with marshmallow and peanut butter that we loved as kids. We cranked it up a notch though and covered these in caramel and chocolate and broke them up into a sweet cream base. The results? "Fluffnut" ice cream, our first flavor and also now the name of our dog.

 

 

The next three months...

We spent every weekend for the next three months prototyping as many flavors as possible. We conceived of flavors such as: Coconut Key Lime, Banana Whama, Goat Cheese Caramal, Caramal Brownie Boom, Ginger Cookie Snap, Maple Bacon Pecan and so on. We wrote all our flavors down on our chalkboard wall in our kitchen. We ate a lot (like really a lot) of ice cream.

 

 

Brooklyn Lyceum Fair

We got accepted into the Brooklyn Lyceum Fair, an annual food and arts fair in Brooklyn where we made and brought seven unique flavors. This is our first public debut. We get a great response from people and sell out halfway through the second day.

 

 

The Hester Street Fair

A couple months later we apply and we get accepted into the Hester Street Fair, a street fair in the historic Lower East Side. We are still working full-time jobs and slinging ice cream on the weekends. We use this opportunity to experiment with seeing what flavors people like and further exploring ice cream as a viable long-term plan.

 

 

Our First Store Sales!

In the fall of 2010 we started selling our ice cream at Brucie's in Cobble Hill and Marlow & Daughters in Williamsburg. While still working full-time jobs we made enough small inventory to sell in these two stores. We never slept.

 

 

Ice Cream University!

In January of 2011 we attended Penn State's famous week long ice cream course, otherwise known as Ice Cream University. There we learned all about the science of ice cream and many other valuable things about ice cream and the industry.

 

 

The Road Ahead

We knew our small little ice cream operation had hit its max potential and we started to think bigger. We knew we wouldn't be able to make a significant difference while doing this on the side. So in January of 2011 we quit our day jobs. What came next was several months devoted to a business plan, recreating our flavors with a new formula and sourcing ingredients.

 

 

Here We Are Today

Hundreds of flavor prototypes later, we are back and ready to bring you some ice cream!
