America’s only Black-owned ice cream brand mixes real baked good into its Southern food-inspired pints

Ice cream is one of America’s favorite desserts, and the frozen aisle absolutely reflects that. Don’t believe it? Walk into any grocery store and head to the ice cream section. Now more than ever, there’s a huge range of flavors from an even bigger array of brands. But, there’s only one that combines baked goods derived from family recipes that reflect the history of the South — and it’s called Creamalicious.

Creamalicious is America’s only mass-produced Black-owned ice cream brand, and according to its founder, executive chef and president, Chef Liz Rogers, it’s some of the creamiest ice creams on the market.

The brand launched in March 2020, although Rogers told In The Know that she first got the idea over a decade ago. The goal is to give consumers really good ice cream, but also tell a story through every flavor. And Creamalicious is doing just that! You can already find Creamalicious at stores like Walmart, Target, Meijer, Jungle Jim’s, Schnucks, Rouses and more. Can’t find it near you yet? Creamalicious also sells its ice cream on its own website and ships nationwide.

“It feels pretty surreal,” Rogers said of her success. “It’s not a place that I thought I would be this soon in my career. It’s very historical being one of the only African American ice cream manufacturers in mass production, the only one in the world today in mass production. So, there’s a lot that goes into trying to get onto the shelves. There’s a lot of trials and tribulations as an entrepreneur. There’s a lot of hard work. And now that you’re on the shelves, you actually have to sell ice cream.”

Rogers is an executive chef by trade and a restaurateur (she owns a restaurant called Wing Champ in Sharonsville, Ohio). But she admits she has always loved sweets. All of Creamalicious’ flavors combine fresh baked pastries and desserts, like sweet potato pie and banana cream pudding. The family recipes date back a whopping four generations, and each has its own story.
