Blueberry Cheesecake
This rich delicacy is an ice cream worth eating. The delicious experience comes from a cheesecake base w/ a graham cracker crunch, all encompassed by luscious blueberry swirls.
Butter Pecan
This classic never gets old. The creamy buttery taste is lulled by the roasted hint of pecan pieces scattered throughout this satiating ice cream- a stand-by favorite.
Cherries Jubilee
This intricate combination includes a mixture of rich black cherry halves & the German ashbach brandy in a cherry flavored base. the intense brandy flavor offsets the sweetness of the cherries creating a sophisticated flavor palate.
Cherry Nut
Calling all cherry fanatics! This one’s for you. A rich cherry ice cream mixed w/ sweet cherry halves & salty walnut pieces. The walnuts bring out the full flavor & add a savory crunch to the fruit making cherry nut deliciously decadent.
Forget the mix-ins. Ditch the toppings. Our chocolate can stand triumphantly on its own. Izzy’s uses third-generation, family-owned guittard cocoa creating a rich dark chocolate base. The creamy goodness mixed w/ the decadent cocoa is our way to pay homage to chocolate enthusiasts everywhere
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
Better​ than licking the bowl, izzy’s makes this flavor w/ heaps of hand-chopped cookie dough folded into tubs of our rich, cookie dough flavored ice cream. As intense as it sounds, be prepared for your taste buds to be totally ravaged. In a good way, of course.
Introduce your taste buds to the wonder of vietnamese cinnamon. Stronger, sweeter, & richer than your average cinnamon, each sandy colored scoop coats tastebuds in a warm, yet sweet sensation.
It’s like a tropical getaway on a cone. One bite & you’ll be hearing lapping waves & smelling salty sea water. We keep our coconut ice cream light & fresh w/ only a swirl of coconut flakes added for garnish. Palm trees & sand optional.
Cookies N’ Cream
As classic as clark gabel & muscle cars, cookies n’ cream is an ice cream cornerstone. Velvety, refreshing vanilla ice cream wraps around every chocolate groove & creamy center of america’s favorite: oreo® cookies. From double scoops to izzy scoop, rest assured that you’ll be biting into the most perfect example of this quintessential flavor.
Maple Nut
When warm days start following hard, midnight freezes, the folks in lutsen, minnesota know it’s time to start tapping the maples. Izzy’s uses this organic, local, glorious amber syrup & renders it into a thick, sugary texture right before it’s added to our own izzy’s ice cream mix & coupled w/ salty walnuts. It’s a scoop of the midwest right in your hand.

While I was thinking which flavor to have, I was told about the Izzy Scoop that puts a mini (actually not so mini) scoop of any flavor on top of any cone or dish. Get to taste more flavors that way. And in case you...More

Thank you so much! Glad you enjoyed your experience at Izzy's (especially the Izzy scoop), and we'll tell our scoopers to keep up the good work :)

Our favorite in the Twin Cities. Highest quality, best flavors, AND the Izzy is a tiny, taster scoop of another flavor of your choice popped on top as a "garnish." We always take our out-of-town visitors there, or at the Minneapolis/Guthrie area location.
