Inside scoop: Boise ice cream co. expands to stores nationwide

Food scientist and University of Idaho grad Louis Armstrong, created a new recipe when he discovered he needed an ice cream that tastes good but is guilt-free.

In 2016, with a recipe ready, Armstrong mixed in his love for killer whales and churned out a brand: Killer Creamery.

He came up with flavors: Brownie Points, Peanut Blubber and No Judge Mint – to name a few.

Now, you can find Armstrong’s ice cream in thousands of grocery stores nationwide.

The Product

Killer Creamery’s ice cream pints have only two to three net carbs and zero added sugar.

“We believe our ice cream delivers on the taste and texture of real ice cream without all the added carbs and sugars,” Killer Creamery’s Tate Glasgow said.

It is also made with MCT oil – an ingredient found in many keto diet-friendly foods.

“Healthy ice cream has a stigma thatits icy and bland,” Glasgow said. “It doesn’t need to be.”

Production

Since the beginning, Killer Creamery manufactured its products in a small Meridian creamery.

“As we’ve grown we’ve expanded to a co-packing plant that can produce our product in much larger quantities,” Glasgow said.

The company is small with only four employees who all work from their Boise homes.

“We are trying to make the best tasting, healthiest, and most enjoyable product on the market.”

Distribution

Killer Creamery sells its pints in more than 2,500 grocery stores nationwide and locally in Albertsons, WinCo, Fred Meyer and the Boise Co-Op.

Glasgow said Instacart and Albertsons Delivery also offer home delivery of the product. You can also order through Killer Creamery’s website. 

In 2021, Glasgow said they plan to distribute to more stores and introduce new flavors.

You can also find where it’s sold near you using the online search tool.
