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 24 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.
Berry Corny ***NEW***
No, your eyes are not deceiving you; this flavor combination is all about summer harvest -- sweetcorn, seedless blackberry jam, and a touch of honey. Like all of our flavors, this one is full dairy and lactose free, made with all natural ingredients and colors.
This is one of my favorite Rave Creamworks ice cream flavors -- chock full of real wild blueberries, a hint of molasses, and chopped up cookies baked by our favorite neighborhood SuperOne grocery store. Wow is this one good! So good! And like all of our flavors, this one is full dairy and lactose free.
Not for everyone ... our most *interesting* Rave Creamworks ice cream flavor ever: BONFIRE. This flavor is the essence of fall -- smoke, tequila, chocolate, walnut, burnt sugar. Yes, you read it right. Now scooping at Victual. Like all of our flavors, this one is full dairy and lactose free -- and surprisingly delicious.
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.
Those into French liqueurs and French lore know of the Green Fairy – visual hallucinations that supposedly were the result of drinking absinthe, a liqueur made from wormwood. (We could go into more detail of the old French lore, but it's ancient history and involves a conspiracy theory from vintners in the burgeoning wine trade who tried to spread false rumors about the existing liqueur industry to get people to switch from liqueur to wine. I digress.) If you've read this far, you're going to want to know that our Green Fairy flavor is made from absinthe, a fennel liqueur and an anise extract. There you've got it – a three-way race towards a licorice flavor that is ultimately smooth, mellow, and lovely. (And it's not just for dads and grandpas.)
White Chocolate Peppermint
This seasonal favorite is exactly what it says it is - the subtle flavor of white chocolate underneath the refreshing taste of peppermint. We mix in real peppermint candy, and while they may dissolve in the ice cream the flavor is amazing!
Honey Lavender Sunflower Seed
This is an incredibly special ice cream – mild wildflower honey, balanced subtly with lavender ... and the salt from the roasted sunflower seeds ties all of the flavors together into the most perfect combination ever. The texture is extra creamy and there's a slight crunch from the sunflower seeds. So many of our customers have reached out to us to let us know just how good this flavor is – and we happen to agree with their assessment.
Version 2.0 ... we made it better! How did we improve it? By flavoring it with real matcha powder instead of a liquid flavor for an authentic green tea experience. Mildly sweet, somewhat grassy, just like the matcha you'd get next door at the Mixed Company coffee shop, only in ice cream form. And like all of our flavors, this one is full dairy and lactose free, made with all natural ingredients and colors.
For the uninitiated, it tastes just like angel food cake! Like all of our ice creams, this one is full dairy and lactose free.
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.
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.
Not your standard cookies and cream ice cream. Chock full of real Oreo® cookie - this tastes like the real thing!
There are some flavor combinations that are iconic in our vast world of food and desserts and Minted Oreo is one of those perfect pairings. This limited-run flavor is the perfect variation of an ice cream flavor that's already near perfection and always high on our list of best sellers. We use fresh spearmint extract and stir the Oreos in by hand after the ice cream is fully churned to protect the fresh minty green color from looking muddy. Cool, refreshing, chocolate-y, Oreo-y, and it has such a clean mouth feel.
Plain ol' Peanut Butter
Made with Skippy® brand smooth peanut butter (lots of it!) and churned to a perfectly creamy consistency. No chocolate chips, no cocoa powder, no chopped nuts, no gimmicks; just plain ol' peanut butter. Like all of our flavors, this one is full dairy and lactose free -- and 100% delicious.
Double Double Vanilla Vanilla
We're crazy for vanilla! You get *extra* Madagascar Bourbon Bean Vanilla plus Tahitian Vanilla plus real vanilla bean specks in this glorious new flavor. Wowza!
It's what happens when you take a midwestern kid's favorite ice cream flavor, Blue Moon, and try to recreate it using all-natural flavors and food coloring. Tutti frutti in flavor, with notes of Froot Loops. Surprisingly delicious, with an authentic summery vibe. Like all of our ice cream flavors, this one is full dairy and lactose free.
We start with a cinnamon ice cream (real cinnamon, not flavoring) and add chopped up Lund's & Byerly's Snickerdoodle cookies into the ice cream just after churning. This flavor is a favorite of co-owner, Paul V, and it was one of the first sample batches that we made long before the idea of the store Victual, and Rave Creamworks, was even fully fleshed out. It's a good thing that Paul V likes snickerdoodles so much ... it's ended up being one of the all-time customer favorites.
After holding onto Brown Sugar Maple for much longer than expected, we've switched to SALTED CARAMEL. Yummy. That's all that needs to be said (except reminding you that like all of our flavors, this one is full dairy and lactose free.)
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
Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter
Introduced for the first time in late winter, we realized immediately that we had a hit flavor on our hands. Rich with a fairly rare "black" chocolate sourced from King Arthur®, we add tons of Skippy® peanut butter to round out the flavor profile. Like all of our flavors, this one is full dairy and lactose free.
