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.
The fourth in a tetralogy of seasonal ice cream flavors. For Spring, we wanted an iconic flavor that celebrated the season of rebirth and beauty and we chose a decidedly floral profile -- a magical combination of hibiscus, rose, elderflower, violet and lavender. The result is delicate yet complex, far from overwhelming, with all elements working together for a delightful blend. Bloom is, indeed, a thing of beauty. Like all of our flavors, this one is full dairy and lactose free, made with all natural ingredients and colors. (For those of you who are new followers, our other seasonal flavors are Summertime, Bonfire and Chill, which you'll see roll out in June, September and December, respectively.)
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.
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! It's like a built-in root beer float. And like all of our flavors, this one is full dairy and lactose free, made with all natural flavors and colors.
There are no sufficient words to describe just how marvelous this ice cream is. Iconic comes closest. Comprised of tons of real strawberries, goat cheese, balsamic reduction and black pepper, this flavor is truly scrumptious. The day we made it, we simply couldn't stop sampling it. Despite the addition of goat cheese, this ice cream is still easy to digest by people with lactose intolerance; we call it lactose friendly. And, it's made with all natural ingredients.
White Chocolate Lemon Poppy Seed
The bright citrus flavor, tempered by the mellow white chocolate is a clean, fresh taste that feels perfectly aligned with our warming weather. People often ask for the inspiration for our ice cream flavors and in this case, we based it off Terroir Chocolate's wildly popular Lemon Poppy White Chocolate bar. For those who don't know, Terroir Chocolate hails from Fergus Falls in MN!
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.
For the uninitiated, it tastes just like angel food cake! Like all of our ice creams, this one is full dairy and lactose free.
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.
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.
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.
Lemon Maple Ginger
One of Rave Creamworks' most creative, unexpected flavors. At once cool and refreshing, tart, sweet, and fiery; the flavors come in layers or waves. The inspiration for this flavor lies in a mocktail recipe, given to us by a dear friend from Hayward, Wisconsin. What an impression it made!
We can't think of a better flavor for summertime ... a perfect (and secret) blend of both spearmint and peppermint that combine together for a bright, pure, clean minty flavor. We use all-natural real chocolate chips, rather than sorta-chocolatey chips used by commercial ice cream makers, making ours an all-natural delight. And, like all of our ice creams, this one is full dairy and lactose free.
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.
Dark Chocolate Ginger Orange
This ice cream serves up a deep, rich cocoa flavor, spiked with citrusy orange, followed by a bit of ginger-y heat at the base of the tongue; lovely! Like all of our flavors, this one is full dairy and lactose free, made with all natural ingredients and colors.
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.
Young and old will enjoy this comforting combination of orange and vanilla, whose flavor origin dates back over 100 years. We are keeping it alive and well for new generations. Plus a bit of a nod to the mountain bikers.
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
