Packaging

To ensure the quality of your product is maintained through packaging, freezing, and travel to the final destination, all custom flavors will be packaged in standard brown cardboard 3-gallon tubs and lids secured together with a plastic ring.  A label will be applied to the lid with ingredients, nutritional facts, and allergen warnings and a plain white label with the ice cream name will be applied to the side of the container. 

Custom printing pint packaging is available for an additional fee (artwork must be finalized 45 days prior to ice cream make) 

Perhaps you are looking for a different option…

Are you interested in a more budget friendly option that allows you to give your favorite Cornell ice cream a new, personalized name?  Choose any of the standard Cornell ice cream flavors, tell us how many 3-gallon tubs you need, and then choose a fun name to print on the label (e.g., Cornelia’s Dark Secret could become Chris’ Chocolate Chip).  Simple and affordable with less lead time needed to process the order!
