About Us

Penny Lick Ice Cream Company was founded in 2013 with the mission of bringing back old-fashioned, custard-based ice cream. Our ingredients are fresh and locally-sourced. We never use artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners. Our ice creams are made in small batches with heavy cream, cream-lined whole milk, eggs and sugar from local Hudson Valley farms. The result is undeniably delicious premium ice cream.

We take our name from a style of ice cream vending in the late 19th century. For just a penny, customers would buy a small scoop (a “lick”) of ice cream in a petite glass with a shallow depression.

Penny Lick push carts can be found at festivals, farmers markets and special events all over New York City and the lower Hudson Valley.
