At Michigan Cream & Sugar, we are very intentional about sourcing all of our milk from Michigan dairy farmers, distributed by the Michigan Milk Producers Association – and all of our sugar from Michigan Sugar, a cooperative of 900 Michigan grower-owners. But did you know there’s an extra boost of local in many of our flavors? We’re inspired by the rich agricultural bounty in our surrounding communities and around the state. Whenever possible, we strive to use ingredients grown here in Michigan and we also look for opportunities to partner with local businesses.
These flavors in our lineup have an extra boost of local! (Note that many are seasonal/limited edition flavors, so be sure to check the current list on the Our Flavors page to see what's available now. You can always ask your scooper if certain flavors are in our standby freezer. Sometimes the team's creativity exceeds space in the case!)
24-Carrot Magic is truly magical, with locally sourced carrots AND freshly baked carrot cake.
Story coming soon to the blog!
In the fall of 2022, we introduced Apple Cider Crisp, proudly featuring apple cider and seasonal apple varieties from Bayne’s Apple Valley in Freeland. This apple-y, buttery favorite also has Pioneer® (a Michigan Sugar brand) brown and granulated sugar in the ice cream base and in the oatmeal crisp swirled throughout. Watch for more apple-y flavors with this local partner this fall.
Caramel Macchiato features freshly brewed espresso from Live Oak Coffeehouse, one of our neighbors here in Uptown Bay City.
Cha-Cha Cherry features chopped dark sweet Michigan cherries.
Lavender Crumble, reformulated in 2023, is doubly (actually, triply) sweet thanks to local star thistle honey and Pioneer® powdered sugar in the house-baked lemon shortbread crumbled throughout. Read more on our blog.
Lemon Blueberry includes juicy Michigan blueberries.
Main Street Choffee is another flavor that uses freshly brewed espresso from our neighbors at Live Oak Coffeehouse, just steps away on Main Street. Fueled by late-night caffeinated inspiration to jazz up our "old" Espresso Buzz flavor, Main Street Choffee also includes our housemade caramel, scratch-baked brownie bites AND dark chocolate shavings in a chocolate-y, coffee-y custard-style ice cream. Our Facebook community helped us with the name!
Michigan Sugar Cookie boasts house-baked sugar cookie crumble made with Pioneer® brown sugar from Michigan Sugar.
Peach Cobbler (brimming with Michigan peaches from Michigan Farm to Freezer) kicked off our 2023 season and made a reappearance in the summer.
Raspberry O'Macaron is the product of another fun local partnership - in addition to Michigan raspberries, we use handmade raspberry macaron shells from O'Macaron in Midland. "Freckles" of Callebaut white chocolate add interesting chew throughout. We'll have a story on our blog soon.
Strawberry Fields Forever is made with sweet Michigan strawberries.
The Real P. Stachio is unexpectedly smooth, sophisticated and scrumptious with toasted pistachios from St. Laurent Bros, a Bay City legend.
Udderly Buttery Pecan takes your tastebuds to a whole new level of nutty with whole roasted pecans from St. Laurent Bros.
