Do You Know What’s In Your Soft Serve?

We live in time where we have to question what is on our spoon before we put it into our mouth. We have heard stories of all the extra additives, in a variety of different names found in the foods we eat– it makes us question everything. Frozen dessert is no exception. It is time, as consumers, for us to demand more of businesses providing food to the community.

Our artisan soft-serve sundae bar is sure to attract food lovers and those with dietary restrictions alike, providing options that support many different preferences, including organic dairy, vegan, paleo and low glycemic. With The Maple Parlor’s self serve style, guests are able to choose exactly what they want, from a browned butter, full-fat soft serve to a dairy-free caramel coconut option. These truly will be “Sundaes for Everyone”. By supporting us on Kickstarter, you can rest assured that you will know what’s on your spoon.

Don’t just sit there, pick up a spoon and help us get this food revolution started!
