Bassetts Ice Cream is Rich in History, but Richer in Flavor!

Bassetts Ice Cream is not only delicious, it has a long and proud history as well. America’s oldest ice cream brand is a family-owned and operated business that has been making high-quality ice cream with a luxuriously silky mouthfeel since 1861. That's over 160 years of experience and tradition in every scoop. Bassetts Ice Cream has a unique recipe, which has been handed down from generation to generation, that creates an ice cream eating experience like no other.
