Van Leeuwen Ice Cream, French, Vanilla Bean

Est. Brooklyn 2008. Vanilla is a complex flavor with over 200 compounds that create its unique taste. We source Tahitian vanilla beans that are cured in the sun to concentrate their flavor then cold-ground whole. To make our Vanilla Bean ice cream we steep the ground beans 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 egg yolks. We obsessively source the best ingredients in the world to create each flavor. Enjoy! Ben. Retz & Laura. Instagram vanleeuwenicecream.
