What's happening at Lizzy's Harvard?

To our valued customers-

Beginning December 1, Lizzy’s Ice Cream in Harvard Square will cease its ice cream sales for the winter months. BUT, the store will NOT be closing. Instead, Lizzy’s is proud to announce a partnership with Gâté Comme de Filles, a local chocolatier.  Hand-crafted with care in Somerville, these are some of the finest chocolates available in the area. Lizzy’s will be featuring Gâte Comme de Filles’ chocolates for the months of December, January and February and will resume normal ice cream operations in March. Thank you for a great year of ice cream, and we hope you can stop by to try some of our chocolates during the winter months!

Sweet Stuff

March 11, 2012

Someone asked me about the presence of high fructose corn syrup(HFCS) in one of our products. She likes to avoid eating products that contain that ingredient, and was wondering why we use.

That particular flavor (Raspberry Chocolate Chip Frozen Yogurt) has several ingredients (yogurt, milk, sweeteners, fruit, chocolate chips...), and I wanted to give a precise answer. So I did some calculations and realized that the amount of HFCS in a 4 ounce serving is less than 1 gram ( two hundredths of an ounce). Amazing.

I knew it wasn't much because it is way down the list of ingredients on our ingredient list of the pints and quarts. But I was shocked at how little of there is in a serving.

If you have any questions, use the "Contact" link at the bottom of our web pages to send me a message.

Fancy Photos of Lizzy's with Google's Magic Camera

March 1, 2012

The folks from Google came by and shot some fantastic panoramic views of our store interiors - all 3 locations! They are really cool because you can wander inside the stores and look the the store interior - even the ceilings. All if this is accessible from Google's Street View, so if you are using Google Maps or Google Places, and choose the street view, you can play with it. Neat stuff!!!




The winning entry is... Charles River Crunch


Anique Olivier-Monsen, a graduate student at Brandeis, has won our flavor naming contest.

Anique dropped by this week to receive her prize certificates for 52 quarts of ice cream.

Over 630 entries were submitted at our stores in Cambridge and Waltham. Thanks to everyone who submitted and entry. The contest generated a lot of excitement. 



New Flavors and a CONTEST


New flavors at both Harvard Square and Waltham.

We want to kick off summer with some new fruit flavors, so we proudly announce Kiwi Sorbet and Cantaloupe Ice Cream. Both flavors contain lots of fresh fruit and natural sweetness.

And loving dark chocolate as I do, I wanted another flavor with dark chocolate ice cream. We found a crunchy almond toffee nugget and liked the result when we mixed it into the dark chocolate ice cream. So, we put that on sale last weekend, but we don't have a name for the flavor.

CONTEST    CONTEST    CONTEST   Name that flavor!

We thought it might be fun to have a contest. If you suggest a name that we like, you will win a year of free ice cream - 52 quarts of pre-packed ice cream.

You must visit either store (Waltham or Harvard Square) to enter. Web entries are not eligible for a prize.
