About eCreamery Ice Cream and Gelato
eCreamery Ice Cream and Gelato was formed in 2007 in a small parlor in Omaha, Nebraska. They’ve been scooping up classic favorites, original flavors and unique customer-requested creations ever since.
Their claim to fame is shipping personalized ice creams nationwide.
Every delicious flavor is made in a small batch process, then hand-packed and labeled.
Ice cream and cookies are a match made in heaven. To take advantage of this, in 2019 eCreamery merged with another Omaha business called Carson’s Cookie Fix.
Was ecCreamery on Shark Tank?
Yep! Back in 2012, the company was featured on ABC’s Shark Tank. They did not finalize a deal, but the Sharks really enjoyed their ice cream.
They even have a Shark Tank Collection available for purchase on their website. The pints have fun names too: Mr. Wonderful’s Shark Bait, Robert’s InvestMINT, Barbara’s Delicious Dividends and The Cubanero. The flavors are:
- Mint Cookie Crunch Ice Cream with Fudge Swirls
- Coffee Toffee Ice Cream with Chocolate Chunks
- Sea Salt Caramel Brownie Ice Cream
- S’mores Ice Cream
Products Available from eCreamery
eCreamery sells ice cream, gelato and sorbet by the pint. You can select from best-selling flavors or create your own flavor.
Personalized Pints: How many flavors does eCreamery have?
At the time of writing this, there are 19 flavors on their Personalized Bestselling Pints page. Some flavors are always available such as Cookies & Cream and Chocolate Cake Ice Cream with Brownie Bites & Fudge Swirls. They also offer a few seasonal flavors that are available for a limited time only.
Completely Customized: Can I create a custom flavor?
Yes! You can create a totally custom flavor. You get to pick:
- the base (ice cream, gelato or sorbet)
- the flavor (there are 50 to choose from)
- the mix-ins (there are 40 to choose from)
- the name of your flavor
- the label (choose from existing designs or upload your own images)
It’s important to note that the minimum for a custom flavor is 4 pints. This is because the smallest batch their chefs can make of one custom flavor is 4 pints.
In their words, “Making less than 4 pints is like baking one cookie at a time instead of a dozen.” If you’re looking for an assortment of flavors, the best-selling pints option may work better for you.
Special Occasions: How can I send ice cream as a gift?
Finding the perfect gift for someone can be difficult – especially if you need to ship it.
It’s super easy to send eCreamery ice cream as a gift for pretty much any occasion.
If you check out their Special Occasions Gifts page, you can find collections for a birthday, get well, sympathy, congratulations, new baby, graduation, new home and tons more.
They also have a handy Gift Guide that allows you to search by the type of person you’re shopping for (grandparents, kids, him, her, office, large parties, etc)
You can also order a 3, 6 or 9-month ice cream of the month subscription.
If none of these options work, gift cards are also available.
eCreamery Ice Cream Reviews
Products We’ve Tried
eCreamery shared 4 personalized pints with us. They even included our logo on one of the labels and used my name in one of the flavor names, Micky’s Munchies. How cool is that? Think of the fun you could have designing your own labels and product names!
I sampled the:
- Mint Cookie Crunch Ice Cream: gooey fudge and crunchy chocolate cookies wrapped in creamy, sweet mint
- Vanilla Cookie Dough Ice Cream (custom flavor): classic vanilla packed with chunks of chocolate chip cookie dough
- Mocha Oreo Crunch Ice Cream (limited edition): chocolate coffee ice cream, chock full of delicious Oreo cookies, chocolate crunch and fudge swirls
- Double Vanilla Cashew Brittle Ice Cream (limited edition): sweet creamy vanilla ice cream and the crunch of nutty, delicious homemade cashew brittle
- Assortment of Cookie Fix Gourmet Cookies (Mother’s Day collection)
The ice cream arrived frozen solid, with plenty of dry ice still left in the box. In fact, the ice cream was so cold that I needed to let it “warm up” in my freezer before digging in.
After waiting patiently, I finally peeled open the containers and started taste testing.
The first thing that struck me about each flavor was the amazing creamy texture. You can tell right away that it is really good, high-quality ice cream.
Each pint was equally delicious in its own way. The balance of flavors and textures is excellent. Plus there are plenty of mix-ins in each pint.

eCreamery has been featured in more places than just Shark Tank. They’ve been spotted on The Today Show, Good Morning, Oprah, Martha Stewart Living, New York Times, ESPN, People, Vogue and more.

“Having ice cream delivered is a delightful surprise, plus the wonderful flavors are delicious. Very creamy and high-end. I can’t wait to send this to someone.”
“Ecreamery is a great product, but their shipping costs are too high which prevents me from ordering more often.”
“We love this clever company. The ice cream has been a big hit and made us laugh over Zoom calls!! There was a problem with one of the orders and when we complained they took care of it immediately. Great customer service.”
“A friend ordered this for me, but did not realize I was going out of town. I came home to a melted mess. No problem. eCreamery replaced my shipment.”
“Amazing ice cream and exemplary customer service. They have become my go-to place when I want to spread a little sunshine through the mail. Their packages make the best gifts!”

Many years ago when I was working at a job I disliked, one of my vendors sent me a box of customized eCreamery as a surprise ‘thank you’ gift. It was such an awesome surprise and brightened my whole day.
That experience flashed back in my mind when I opened recently open my shipment of eCreamery ice cream for review. Seeing my name and logo on the label made me feel kinda special.
While I don’t think I’d order this ice cream for myself, I would absolutely order it as a gift to surprise friends, loved ones or even colleagues.
Sure, it’s a little expensive. But it’s to be expected that shipping a heavy package of ice cream across the country will cost a bit of money. Plus where else can you find such a unique and unexpected gift idea that you can totally customize just for the person you’re sending it to?
Bottom line: I definitely recommend giving eCreamery a try!
