Van Leeuwen Ice Cream, Vanilla Bean, French

Vanilla is a complex flavor with over 200 compounds that give it its unique taste. We use Tahitian vanilla beans that are cured in the sun to concentrate flavor, then cold ground and steeped in our rich custard base. Using the entire bean allows all the pod pulp to come through, resulting in a wonderfully nuanced and balanced flavor. Our Story: We began in the spring of 2008 out of a scoop truck in Brooklyn, New York. Our ice cream is made in small batches with fresh milk and cream, pure cane sugar and organic egg yolks. We obsessively source the best ingredients in the world to create each flavor. Enjoy! Ben, Rate & Laura. Instagram (a)vanleeuwenicecream. Twitter (a)vlaic.
