We make incredible ice cream. Period. It’s super-premium, meaning it’s full dairy with a high butterfat content and we don’t whip a lot of air into it when we make it. It’s rich, creamy, and dense in texture – all signs of an incredible ice cream experience. It’s clean label, meaning no chemicals, no artificial flavors and no artificial colors. We pay attention to how it feels in the mouth and how it melts. And, best of all, we figured out how to make it lactose-free so that everyone can enjoy it. Why hasn’t the dairy industry figured this out already? Good question. But we did, and you’re going to love it.
At Victual, we have an ever-changing roster of 16 flavors – some basic flavors will be available year round; others will change seasonally, and some limited edition flavors will be here for just a short time only.
Our ice cream is available as 1 to 3 scoop servings, or to go in pints and quarts.
We will strive to keep this list as current as possible. However, sometimes flavors will sell out and be replaced before we have a chance to update our selections here. Fear not - we're sure you'll be able to pivot to another flavor you will love. To ensure so you will find a new favorite, we'll let you sample as many as you wish.
One of the benefits of growing up in Detroit, MI, was its ethnic diversity; one of those groups was Greek, and from them came my love of baklava -- a rich/sweet dessert made from flaky phyllo dough, chopped walnuts and honey. For our ice cream, we've started with a honey base and strewn in massive chunks of chopped up baklava. It's extra sweet and extra amazing, especially when you get one of those chunks of chopped nutty, syrupy goodness. I can say with confidence that you've never had an ice cream like this before. Like all of our flavors, this one is full dairy and lactose free, made with all natural ingredients and food coloring.
Folks, this is the real deal, flavored with pistachio paste, with chopped, roasted, salted pistachios strewn throughout. If you're hoping for a Jell-O® pistachio pudding flavor, this ain't it; this is real and authentic, and it's absolutely scrumptious. And like all of our flavors, this one is full dairy and lactose free, made with all natural flavors and colors.
Lemony Oreo® ***NEW***
We start with a lemon ice cream base and add in tons of crushed up Lemon Oreos. Brightly flavored citrus-y goodness with a two-thumbs-up rating. And like all of our ice creams, this one is full dairy and lactose free.
This flavor is meant as our midwinter seasonal flavor, combining juniper berries with teaberry, and adding in spices of cardamom and white pepper. If you've been fans of Summertime and Bonfire from past seasons, this could be your new favorite taste experience. Like all of our flavors, this one is full dairy and lactose free, using all natural flavors and colors.
Birch Beer ***NEW***
For the unfamiliar, birch beer is similar to root beer, but a bit more authentic in origin. Made by distilling birch sap down to an oil, it has a more complex flavor, earthy and spicy; it's creamy up front and slightly minty on the finish. Gotta say that we were so excited to sample this one when the first batches were done; we predict you'll love it! And like all of our flavors, this one is full dairy and lactose free, made with all natural flavors and colors.
Brown Sugar Maple
Maple anything – syrup, sugar, candy, fudge – has always been a favorite flavor, and giving it a brown sugar base in this beautiful ice cream makes it ultra rich and extra special.
We only make this one when we find overripe bananas at the grocery store. The authentic banana flavor is intoxicating and the nutty chocolaty flavor of the Nutella makes it magical. This is one flavor that cannot be missed. And, like all of our ice creams, this one is full dairy and lactose free
We're in love with this flavor – one of our most complex recipes to date, as we worked to replicate the surprisingly complex flavor of Red Velvet cake with cream cheese frosting, all while using all-natural flavors. The interesting thing about Red Velvet cake is that there's a touch of sourness to it, as it's historically made with buttermilk. With a bit of luck (or skill) we nailed it. It's extra-creamy texture and mouth feel comes from the lactose-free cream cheese that's added during churning. As with all of our flavors, this one is lactose-free, full dairy, and all-out yummy.
Chocolate V 2.0
Sometimes tinkering with recipes is a good thing. In a quest to make the best possible CHOCOLATE ice cream, Rave Creamworks has experimented and switched its cocoa powder from a well-known brand to a lesser-known but highly esteemed Dutch brand. We think it's a winner ... extra smooth and creamy with a beautiful chocolate flavor.
Midnight is everything that can go right when you experiment with favors and get lucky. It's modeled after one of Paul K's favorite chocolate bars by Naive Chocolate of the United Arab Emirates – it's their Orange Licorice dark chocolate bar – so good that he has absolutely no restraint once he cracks one open. The ice cream version is velvety smooth, and the dark chocolate and licorice notes hit first, with orange following up at the end. Sophisticated and lovely.
A customer favorite from day one! Flavored with Creme de Noyaux, a pink almond-flavored French liqueur, and the most incredible Chocolate Liqueur made by broVo in Oregon. These flavors are supplemented with Dutch process dark cocoa powder and almond extract. Interestingly, the overall flavor profile is that of maraschino cherries with a whisper of chocolate. The levels of liqueur are low enough that all ages (or those that don't imbibe) can enjoy it.
Glace au Café
Perfection, achieved. From the day we launched Rave Creamworks, we've been tinkering with our coffee ice cream flavor, moving from "Coffee" to "Cafe Latte" to "Cafe au Lait." Each iteration was an improvement, but didn't achieve the flavor I've been seeking. You could call it Coffee 4.0 but we've decided call our latest (and final) version GLACE AU CAFÉ, which means coffee ice cream in French, in honor of the country that produces our natural flavoring agent. We don't care if you pronounce it with a distinctively Minnesotan accent, but you can try saying "glass aw ka-FEY" and you'll come close to the French pronunciation.
The ice cream that all other flavors are judged against is Vanilla; it's the backbone the core – of the dipping cabinet. We've selected Madagascar Bourbon Bean Vanilla as our vanilla extract – it's arguably the best vanilla that you can source, and vanilla extracts from other parts of the world just cannot compare. Not only that, but we also churn it with ground natural vanilla bean pods, just to boost the whole experience into the stratosphere.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip
Luscious, peanut-buttery, smooth, with a generous helping of real chocolate chips. This is always in high demand once it arrives in the dipping cabinet. Like all of our ice creams, this one is full dairy and lactose free.
Bourbon Caramel Pecan
You asked (and begged and pleaded) for nuts in ice cream. We figured out a flavor that sounded good: An amazing ice cream made with Hudson Baby Bourbon – ultra creamy, caramel-y and the gentle crunch of pecans. We've got a lot of goodness going on here.
