Sweet Success

Our Story

In 2012, my mom and I started making ice cream sandwiches with my Great Grandma Thelma’s snickerdoodle cookie recipe. We sold them from a little pushcart at our local farmers market in Des Moines, Iowa and our customers couldn’t get enough! Now we’re delighted to share Thelma’s cheeky spirit and delicious treats with customers across the country. Each sweet treat is still made by hand in our own kitchen, and we just know you’ll taste the love in every bite. Thanks for letting us put a little joy in your freezer!

Meet Thelma

August 13, 1904 – June 19, 2013 (that’s right 108!)

Born and raised on the family farm near Monroe, Iowa, Great-Grandma Thelma loved playing the piano and baking for her family. She was famous for her snickerdoodle cookies, and we use a variation of her original recipe to this day. There’s still love in every bite.

Our Little Oven Box

You can’t have Thelma’s without the cookies! Before the ice cream sandwich came warm cookies right out of our little oven box. Our patented box became a viral sensation that won international recognition. Give it a Google and see for yourself. We think Grandma would be proud!
