Opened in 1982 in Siesta Key by Dennis Yoder, Big Olaf Creamery introduced traditional flavors alongside inventive ones. But his big thing was using the highest quality ingredients he could find, and now Big Olaf Creamery is a favorite among locals and visitors alike. Their ice creams are hand mixed at a small creamery in Pinecraft, a local Amish neighborhood, and then churned by the local Amish resident craftsmen. One of the most remarkable things about Big Olaf, though, is that their tubs are reusable instead of cardboard, which helps maintain the integrity of the flavors, holds costs down, and keeps their environmental footprint small.
Flavors at Big Olaf Creamery
Big Olaf Creamery Sarasota produces 14% milkfat ice cream, which makes it much creamier than other products. Texture is an integral part of the flavor; this means that Big Olaf’s high fat content helps enhance the already high quality of their flavors. With the ultra-smooth texture of choices like Whitehouse cherry, peach, caramel explosion, apple swirl, captain butterscotch, and white chocolate raspberry, you will think you are in ice cream heaven! Other flavors include salted caramel pretzel, cherry cordial, watermelon Italian ice, sugar-free cappuccino, lemon custard, royal banana crunch, blueberry cheesecake, butter pecan, cookie dough, and the lovely sky-blue cookie monster. They even have good old vanilla, chocolate, coffee, and strawberry! To see all their flavors, check out their website.
