Asian-Flavored Ice Cream Ranges

Sweety Ice Cream Works with Tastes of Vietnamese Coffee and More

— September 27, 2022 — Marketing
Sweety came about due to a demand for Asian-flavored ice cream in Northern America. The business debuted as a mom-and-pop ice cream parlor back in the late 70s and has developed throughout the years into a modern brand. Nowadays, Sweety still fills a niche, bringing Asian-flavored ice cream to a market that has grown exponentially since the brand's inception.

Sweety specializes in mochi—the "bite-sized ice cream bundled in sweet rice dough" that originates from Japan. The brand brings "a Golden State twist" to the recipe with farm-fresh California milk. Sweety's range of Asian-flavored ice cream includes Simply Strawberry, Matcha Green Tea, Azuki Red Bean, Vietnamese Coffee, Madagascar Vanilla, Classic Chocolate, Alphonso Mango, and Ube Purple Yam. These unique recipes are gluten-free, Kosher-certified, and do not contain any nuts.
