When Dereck (son) and Lana (mom) started selling handmade ice cream sandwiches from a little pushcart at the Des Moines Farmer’s Market, they ran out before they knew it: customers couldn’t keep their hands off the sweet treats. From a small start to a rapid rise, we now spread the love all across the country. Using our 108-year-old Great-Grandma Thelma’s original snickerdoodle recipe, we have grown leaps and bounds to serve hundreds of stores. And customers still can’t get enough.
Thelma’s uses a grassroots approach to build popularity the old-fashioned way – we hustle, introduce treats to taste buds, and let the “yums” do the talking. We’ve shared our delicious handmade treats at festivals, weddings, and unique promotional events. Fans love that each bite is a fun, sweet treat, jam-packed with handmade goodness – just like a trip to grandma’s house.
