A Little About Sugar Creek Foods...

There are three things that define the heart & soul of Sugar Creek Foods Inc. products and company: Family owned, made in America, & "truly crafted" frozen yogurt. The company got its start in 1946 with a passion to offer its customers a truly unique soft serve/frozen yogurt product. Sugar Creek wanted to help its customers stand out in a crowded & competitive industry.

With this in mind, they quickly got to work in pioneering "soft" gelato & "soft" Italian ice. Their line of soft products allows for the variety of different frozen dessert types to be processed and frozen in a soft serve/frozen yogurt machine. Before they made this new product, you needed to use batch freezers to make either Italian ice, gelato, & frozen custard. If you didn't use the right equipment to make these then you could risk damaging your frozen dessert machine.

What Frozen Desserts Do They Offer? Why Should I Buy Sugar Creek?

 Sugar Creek offers soft serve ice cream, soft gelato, soft Italian ice, soft custard, sorbet, & cultured coconut milk, which can all be made using the same piece of equipment, a soft serve machine. This saves you damage to your machines, having to invest in new equipment, and it also provides you with a variety of new products (that have been tested to be best sellers) that you can offer to your customers.


Sugar Creek is always promoting health, wellness, & great taste. Proper nutrition goes hand in hand with a great taste, & the private brand of Honey Hill Farms focuses on developing Low Fat, Non-Fat, No Sugar Added Non-Fat, and Non-Fat Non-Dairy (Sorbets) products with a Certification of Live Active Cultures (during manufacturing & the finished product).

Sugar Creek Foods Inc. is always testing new ways to improve classic recipes and develop new flavors, and it all starts with the customer.

Real Life Situation: Sugar creeks recently tested their "cupcake" flavor with delighted customers. After some time spent trying to capture the true taste of cupcake with indulgent red chocolate cupcake base & added cream cheese icing droplets, the taste testers were pleasantly surprised stating that they loved how the icing droplets were evenly dispersed throughout the frozen dessert mix!

On top of the ingredients, sugar creek keeps the tradition of aging its products before blast freezing it. When crafting frozen dessert mixes with real ingredients (especially complicated flavors) it helps to let the ingredients settle & mix well in cooler vaults before blast freezing it. This way there is a more consistent & rich flavor evenly distributed throughout every last bite of the frozen dessert.


Some companies don't even consider the importance of packaging frozen dessert mixes, but they realized just how much hassle and money their customers could save with the specialized packaging they designed. "Super Jug" is designed with recyclable plastic, strong design, & easy to use.

Compared with other industry leaders, the super jug design leaks 0.05% versus a reported average of 23% leakage of competitors. This is done by using a specially designed mold to make the container without any seams so the container is one strong plastic piece.

What Does This Mean For The Customer?

If you have a frozen product, you expect it to not leak when you move it from the freezer to the fridge. Typically during shipping & handling, operators need to open crates, cut wires, and move large packages with a forklift. These things might cause damage to the container but are unnoticeable because a frozen product doesn't leak. When the product goes from the cart to the fridge to thaw out, the operators don't know if there is a damage done to the container. So when the product mix goes from frozen to liquid, the container might start leaking and you will lose product mix. Added to the loss, you have to spend valuable labor cleaning up the mess.
