This ice cream truck has been getting a lot of press lately. And for very good reason!

Sweet Republic makes all of their ice creams, cookies, toppings and waffle cones by hand, using milk and creams from independent Arizona dairy farms. They do not use any artificial colors, preservatives or hydrogenated oils. Everything is natural, even down to the sustainably harvested birch wood for their ice cream sticks. I love that! Isn’t this what ice cream should be? Just natural goodness.

But don’t think that all-natural can’t be indulgent as well. Sweet Republic’s ice creams have been winning awards and accolades because of their incredibly sumptuous, and inventive, flavors. I love their Meyer Lemon and have a list of what I want to try next… Basil Lime Sorbet, Early Grey Tea, Malted Vanilla, and especially their Salted Butter Caramel. There is even one with Roquefort blue cheese and Arizona Medijool dates that I am fascinated with trying. That may be my next one!

Look for their 1959 Chevy milk truck at the Old Town Scottsdale Farmer’s Market, or go visit their store! I love smart local businesses that show just how good being natural can be!
